Any advice?

Favourite dive sites?

Things to definately do?

Things to skip?

Things to take that you may not think of?

Roatan is very good diving. Nice walls and coral.

Advice - Take plenty of DEET. Use it when you get up in the morning before you go out and often during the day, especially for the evening (No see-ums). It will make the differece between having a great time and being miserable. We did great until the last part of our trip, we got complacent and paid for it.

Favorite Dive sites - Mary's Place, Hole-in-the-Wall, Bear's Den

Things to Do - Visit the village of West End, Drive up the mountain for some nice 360 views. There was a restauraunt up there but it's just OK.

Things to skip - Iguana Farm

Things to Take - DEET, DEET, and more DEET. Forget about the others (Skin So Soft, garlic , etc.)

And bring enough vitamin B pills. When combined with a good insect repellant, you'll probably get by with very few bites.
