1.Chill on the beach. All beaches are public, I think it's 30 feet from the high tide mark, as long as you can get to them without going through someone's private property. West Bay is the most famous of beaches, and is really beautiful, though it gets pretty crowded on cruise ship days (most week days), so better to plan there on the weekend. Camp Bay beach is gorgeous, but a bit far to get to, as it's the east end of the island. Sandy Bay beach is just a 3 min walk from the hostel, and it's great to take long walks on- if you go to the right (east) when you get down on the beach, you can walk about 40 min (to Lawson Rock), and then you'd need to wade in the water a bit in order to keep on going.
4. Get Helping. , There are tons of non-profits that can use your help, even if it's just for a day or two! Read to some kids or organize books at the Sandcastle Library, play basketball with youth at the courts in the evenings by AKR, organized through the SOL Foundation, count pills (in air conditioning!) at Clinica Esperanza, stop by a school for a few days to see if you can help kids with reading, or grab a few trash bags and do a beach/community clean up.
6. Have hammock time with a book. Another great activity that doesn't cost anything! The hostel's got lots of hammocks- on the upper porch of the main building, up on the oceanview deck, back by the pergola, and if you're missing a book, we have a book exchange upstairs in the living room. Or skip the book and take a nap instead :)
10. Go out dancing. Okay, you might end up spending some money on this one, if you buy some drinks, but there are lots of fun spots for dancing in Roatan- Blue Marlin or El Boske in West End, or Island Saloon east of the airport. Or, head to our backyard and get a party started! We love an occasion to celebrate, so we have hostel parties for Christmas, Easter, birthdays, Canada Day, Halloween or just because there's lots of people around :) Come and get your groove on!
