How do I get around?

The Island is easy to navigate by car, but we suggest you drive the roads in daylight before you drive them at night. The main road on the island is called Carretera Principal and runs from West End to Camp Bay on the east side of Roatan. Speed bumps are commonly used throughout the island to slow down traffic. The Carretera Principal does not have speed bumps, but potholes are common on the east side, so drive carefully. There are several rental car agencies on the island —The following international car rental companies do business on Roatan: Alamo, Avis, Econo Renta Car, Enterprise, National, Sixt, Thrifty and Toyota Rental Car. In addition, a number of local car rental companies exist, among the larger are Racing Car Rental +504 8817-2131 and RoaCar +504 9496-4181.

Drivers are required to have a valid driver’s license. There are also taxis and buses. You should always negotiate the price for a taxi before leaving for your destination. In addition, most resorts and some rental homeowners will arrange transportation to and from the airport.
