Safety in Roatan

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have just booked a trip for the two of us and our 3-year old to go to Roatan in early March 2008. After deciding on Roatan after doing a lot of internet research and booking our non-refundable flights, we found some fairly dire warnings about Honduras and Roatan on the State Department website and some tourist reports that make us concerned about safety. One report talks about hoax roadblocks where tourists are robbed and worse.

Can anyone who has been to Roatan recently (in the last year) report on how safe they felt (or didn't)? Any suggestions for staying safe? Is it OK to rent a car and drive yourself around during the day? Or would it be better to take taxis? Or should we cancel?

Any information would be helpful, as we're now questioning our decision to go off the beaten track, instead of to one of the more developed islands in the Caribbean.

Thanks!
