(okay so this isn't Roatan, but La Ceiba but it still amazes me and power poles all over Honduras look like this
or worse)So we've been on Roatan since Monday around lunch time and every day the power has been out. Monday and Tuesday it was all day. It went off in the middle of the night Monday night and was out til after dinner time. Today the cruise ships were in port so we hoped it might have it today and sure enough we did...til late afternoon and it's still out. Already the beaches are desolate compared to last year. the resorts and hotels are offering amazing deals to try to get people here and try to just keep their doors open. So why why WHY would they decide that this is the time to do "maintenance" on the power system???? Having come from the mainland honestly it doesn't bother us too much. Of course it's inconvenient and a little hotter. But what I say is it's still SOOOOO worth it!! Roatan is amazing....just amazing. And I've done none of the paid tour type things yet (maybe later in the week...we can't decide) just snorkeled and enjoyed the beauty of God's creation!! And let me tell you....the lack of power does not matter!! If you are looking for an amazing vacation and aren't looking to spend a fortune...I encourage you to check out coming to the bay islands! You can fly directly here from the states...generally on Saturdays and truly there are some amazing deals on all inclusive lodging and such to be had right now!! And at least for us, we don't care about the lack of power so much at all (plus it's only supposed to last a few days) we have hammocks and endless fruit and a nice breeze coming off the water. We have enjoyed every single second. Plus, our host at Keifitos has a generator.....and that's what I am using to type this right now.
