There are a few different options for horse back riding in Roatan but they all offer pretty much the same thing.
HM Resorts offers complimentary sea kayaks and many of the dive shops offer sea kayaking tours if you prefer the security of a guide.
Roatan's Marine Park is a conservation group who educate people of the needs to keep our oceans clean. The Roatan Marine Park takes in volunteers for water and fish surveys as well as monitoring the dive shops in the area to ensure they are not damaging the reef.
Gumbalimba park offers something for everyone with tame tropical birds and monkeys to play with and feed, kayaking and sailing or horseback riding will keep the whole family entertained.
Punta Gorda is a village on the north side of Roatan where the traditional folclor dancing is performed by the Garifuna ladies – they put on a great show.
Exactly what it sounds like – a farm of iguanas. Here you can handle Iguanas which used to be a popular meat for stew on Roatan – but these days they're protected.
If you want to explore the Island on your own just rent a car at any of our resorts with your Guest Relation. Budget Rent a Car offers a great service for all our clients at HM Resorts.
See the island by renting a scooter or a motorcycle. We also rent: cell phones to call home, DVD movies and DVD players, as well as 3G modems to stay in touch online. For your convenience, we are located in West Bay and in West End.

Accommodations:

 

Check out where we'll be staying...HERE.... this takes a couple of minutes to load but is REALLY a great look at where we'll staying and diving! The Media Luna specific portion of the video is at the end but the intro is mostly Media Luna when you see the spectacular ocean view shots and resort shots. The multicolored lobby is Henry Morgan and the full beach front with the long dock is HM but the secluded shots of the ocean and diving are all Media Luna. Its a shame some of the better footage was not specifically under the hotel break out. I have been to all 3 resorts and Media Luna is by far the best![/size]

  • Dive shop with lockers for gear very close by and use of hotel swimming pool 
  • Complementary internet access in the lobby 
  • FREE lattes and expresso all day long
  • SD.com Event Communication Center in the Lobby
  • THE HOUSE REEF IS NEXT TO CALVIN'S CRACK ONE OF THE BEST DIVE SITES ON THE ENTIRE ISLAND!!

MORE ON THE HOTEL:

The Media Luna Hotel is made up of a plethora of detached villas that are luxurious and spacious, separated from the lobby and entertainment area of the hotel to ensure maximum relaxation and privacy. The lobby and entertainment area is a relaxing and serene place to check emails, get a drink or just watch the ocean. The pool is situated between the hotel and the aqua water of the North end – home of the islands BEST DIVE SITE. Media Luna is very relaxing and tranquil..far away from all your worries and cares. Stay and dive or just relax and you too will see why so many guests return. 
 

ACCOMMODATION:
At Media Luna Hotel and Beach Resort we have Single rooms with a King size bed, Double rooms with two Queen size beds, Triple rooms with 1 King size bed and 1 single bed and a luxury, private Suite for those special occasions. Each room is furnished with a spa like private bathroom and hot water and equipped with a fridge, hair dryer and the all important air-conditioning and satellite television – although we do hope you will be outside enjoying the Caribbean weather most of the time. Each of the Media rooms has a private balcony/pat with hammock, hard wood floors and comfortable furniture if you want to spend some time in your room. The rooms have been designed with a natural spa type look and feel, natural colors with dark woods will surround in relaxation!

NO PROBLEM!!! NOTE: Media Luna now has a new chef from Italy who specializes in vegetarian and non-meat options as well as traditional dishes for all tastes and preferences. In general Roatan serves food with a European style and flair. As more Americans visit their resorts they expand their menus to more US styled meals...Plus with a number of restaurants nearby you can enjoy you won't go hungry but you might not gain 10 pounds either...all in all that's not too bad! - kamala
 

THE BARS:

TRIP INSURANCE:

 
Trip Insurance is STRONGLY SUGGESTED and/ is NOT required on this trip! TRIP insurance is RELATIVELY inexpensive.

If you opt to not get trip insurance you are responsible for all losses related to your trip including not going for any reason. If diving a LIVEABOARD please consider the liveabaord rider offer by DiveAssure.com.

DIVING INSURANCE:

 

DIVE Insurance is required on all trips! DIVE insurance is VERY inexpensive. Even if you have insurance that you think covers DIVING ACCIDENTS and air lifts…it is CHEAP (approx $100-$125) to get a supplemental policy to ensure you are covered for an entire year of diving. 

 

PRO TIP; The two primary suppliers of dive insurance DiveAssure.com and DAN are inexpensive enough to carry both. This way you will have the best coverage internationally, the best coverage domestically, primary insurance, secondary insurance and if a claim is denied on one policy you can submit it on the other. No matter what happens...YOU ARE COVERED!!! ... PRICELESS!!!
 
We recommend:
 

Dive Assure: for either a 'one time' policy OR an annual policy for BOTH Dive & Trip Insurance providing PRIMARY COVERAGE with excellent rates and coverage! Please use THIS LINK and/or reference SingleDivers.com via the drop-down menu under GLOBAL PARTNERS. (If you can not find the drop down, do not reference anyone and email info@singledivers.com your policy info and we will do it for you via our Dive Assure company representative.

Experience Required & Training/Workshops:

  • Minimum Certification / Experience: ROATAN diving is open to ALL levels of certification OW and up, at most experience levels. Roatan is decent for beginners and great for intermediate and beyond!  NOTE If you are a new diver with 10 dives or less please be prepared to hire a DM to assist you as you will be expanding your diving skills dramatically this week and you may not be able to do 1 or 2 dive sites but that's not a big deal with so many to choose froom.
  • Certification in Paradise - Ask us about different certifications available on this trip. Its always nice to get certified in Paradise. Let us help you do this!  USE THE "Help with this trip" BUTTON TO REQUEST MORE INFORMATION
  • Advanced Open Water - includes several 'advanced dives' such as navigation, night, and deep plus several choices of your own including photography, peak buoyancy, etc. USE THE "Help with this trip" BUTTON TO REQUEST MORE INFORMATION
  • Nitrox - includes book work, classroom instruction and sometimes the manual. Some classes include the use of a nitrox compatible computer and the gas itself. Some classes will give you a reduced rental rate for the computer and use of the gas if you take the class during the trip.  USE THE "Help with this trip" BUTTON TO REQUEST MORE INFORMATION
  • Solo Certification - This cert will enable you to dive independently of a human dive buddy by training you to dive with a mechanical dive buddy aka a pony bottle or stage bottle. - Ask about the 'enhanced solo skills' where the instructor will challenge you with several additional skills that will complement your solo cert skills enabling you to be even MORE independent and self sufficient in the water. USE THE "Help with this trip" BUTTON TO REQUEST MORE INFORMATION

PRICES: Prices for classes in Paradise are always more expensive than doing them at home. Sometimes SingleDivers.com has instructors on our trips who are happy to teach AND usually offer a member discount to anyone interested in taking a class.
