Buy Locally in Roatan

Posted in: All About Roatan

I am a huge proponent of supporting local businesses, especially when I travel. It may be harder and harder to avoid the international chain stores and eateries altogether, but we always have the choice to not buy from them. Buy from local artisans, eat at locally-owned restaurants, and support the community you’re visiting. These local operations are what makes a place unique.

Recently, my Irish-Colombian and I took advantage of a gift certificate we won back when we attended the Roatan Humane Society’s Fur Ball Fundraiser. Our raffle prize was a two-night stay at the lovely West Bay Lodge, complete with breakfast each day and a 5-course lobster dinner one night! A weekend in West Bay isn’t a distant getaway for us, but it was really fun to feel like a tourist in our own backyard. Here are some of the highlights from our staycation in West Bay Roatan.

It was just another day in the life on Roatan…until I left. I’m writing this from another country, another home, and not even remotely another beach (unfortunately). But it was a morning in Roatan at least.
