Entry Requirements: To enter Honduras, you must present a U.S. passport with at least six months of validity. U.S. and Canadian citizens do not need a visa; however, you must provide evidence of return or onward travel. For other nationalities, it is your responsibility to ensure your visa requirements. No refunds will be awarded for customers denied access for lack of a proper visa.

Planning Your International Flights:  There are direct flights into Roatan from Miami, Atlanta, and Houston, all subject to change. Please make sure you book incoming flights that arrive in Roatan no later than 2:00 pm. Likewise, your connecting flights out of Roatan should be booked no earlier than a noon departure.

Pack for a Purpose: Should you find when packing for your trip that you have a few pounds/kilos of space in your suitcase, please consider bringing a contribution to the Pack for a Purpose project we support.  In doing so, you'll make a priceless impact on the lives of our local children and families. If you opt to bring a sizable donation, we highly recommend placing it in a separate piece of luggage bearing a tag, labeling it as Pack for a Purpose. In this way, should you fly into Guanaja, the Airline will know to prioritize guest baggage over the Pack for a Purpose baggage, which can be delivered later. Knowing that the luggage is for Pack for a Purpose and the local community's benefit may also prevent the Airline from imposing any overweight charges. For more information on how you can help and a list of supplies needed, please visit https://www.dunbarrock.com/pack-for-a-purpose/

Clothing: Dress at the resort is very casual, so pack whatever makes you most comfortable; shorts, t-shirts, lightweight tops, pants, skirts, or dresses. No reason to overpack as the resort offers complimentary laundry service! Water shoes are good to have, with light hiking boots for those who might wish to explore the island. A windbreaker or rain slicker should also be considered. 

Dietary Restrictions: Due to our small size and remote location, we offer a limited menu and must provide it in advance for our guests. Therefore, guests with food allergies or dietary restrictions must notify us of their circumstances well in advance. This and other information can be provided to us via the guest questionnaire.

Dive Gear Rental: If you opt not to bring your own gear, we have well-maintained rental BCD’s in a variety of sizes as well as new regulators with computers, full foot fins, masks, and snorkels. We also have wetsuits, but in limited quantity, so you may wish to consider bringing your own. Be sure to tell us in advance of any dive gear rental requirements on the guest questionnaire.

 Cash for Tipping: A small amount of cash will come in handy for tipping baggage handlers and masseurs and the $10.00 in cash needed for the Environmental Fund for the Protection of Guanaja Island. You are welcome to add dive and resort staff gratuities to your room charge, paid by credit card. 

 Toiletries & Sundries: We provide shampoo, conditioner, body soap, and hair dryers in the bathrooms. Towels (including beach towels) and all linens are provided.  

 Gadgets: The electric plugs in your room are the standard US 110 V plugs. European visitors will need to bring their adaptors. Don't forget the camera! Binoculars and a flashlight are always a good idea. Divers might also consider bringing an underwater magnifying glass for a closer look at all of our macro life and any macro lenses needed for underwater cameras! 

 Bug Spray: Due to our island location, we are generally not bothered by mosquitoes and sand fleas to the extent mainland locations are. However, you will likely want to visit mainland Guanaja or other cays during your stay, so we still recommend you pack insect repellents such as OFF or Cutter. Also, consider packing Hydrocortisone cream or other anti-itch cream and Benadryl Tablets. 

 Sun Protection: Be sure to pack a hat and sunglasses. Sun shirts are nice to have as well. We also request that you pack only reef-safe, biodegradable SPF sunscreen. 

Trip Insurance

The COVID-19 Virus has lead to many changes in travel and trip insurance.  Please be sure to purchase Trip Insurance either through our trusted provider or your insurer of choice! At present, our recommendation is to purchase either the Travel SE Plan or the Travel LX Plan with our trusted insurance provider,  IMGlobal®.

Both plans include a Travel Delay benefit should you contract COVID-19 while on your trip and be required to quarantine in Guanaja.  Both plans also include Emergency Medical Evacuations coverage, however, only the Travel LX Plan includes a "Cancel for Any Reason" benefit.
