What does that mean for you as a traveler?
- Book ahead!!! Don't just turn up expecting to find accommodations, because you'll be in for a bad surprise if you do. Prices increase during these dates, there are minimum stays, and everything gets booked up.
- Check into transportation schedules, and arrive earlier than you normally would- the ferry between La Ceiba and Roatan adds in a couple of extra trips each day, and the boats are always full. Sometimes website information is not accurate- for example, I just checked, and the website for the ferry is not showing their holiday schedule, but it's been posted on Facebook.
- Stock up on groceries near the start of the week. As more and more people come to the island, it gets to be pretty slim pickings!
- Be prepared for crowds, especially in West Bay. In the rest of the island, you can find areas that aren't so crazy, but West Bay gets packed.
