You see the shipwrecks at Dixon Cove, local fishing boats at French Harbor, and visit a monkey farm, where you can play with the monkeys and usually hold a sloth. We then visit West End Village where we have an authentic local lunch waiting for us at the beach. Here we spend a couple of hours before heading back to the ship. You can snorkel (snorkel equipment is included and there is a nice reef just off the beach), swim or just relax. Price per person $80, if paying by check.
 Roatan Zipline: Add a thrilling zipline adventure to your island tour. Zipline through the jungles from 16 different platforms. The zipline is located just a few minutes away from the beach. For those doing the zipline, you will go to the zipline right before lunch. We will then bring you back to the beach. If you do the zip line, there is usually not a lot of time to snorkel, but you can still swim at the beach. The price is about an additional $45. You pay for this when you get to the zipline.

On this tour we enjoy the jungle setting of Chacchoben and its majestic ruins. This site existed during the late Book of Mormon times.

After visiting the ruins, we travel to a little Maya village where we have the opportunity to see how the Maya lived. We enjoy an amazing, traditional Maya lunch and may even join in making the corn tortillas. The Maya experience at the village has become a favorite for many guests. Price per person $125, if paying by check.
