  • What about the bugs?
    • Bring bug spray, wipes, etc. We use a combination of products with deet and natural. Each trip is different. Be careful when you arrive to get a feel for how the bugs are. Keep bedroom doors closed at all times and you will not have to worry in the rooms. You can buy more at the local gas station. A local expat makes a great natural spray that also works great to soothe bites. You can purchase it at Fresh Bakery.
  • Can you drink the water?
    • All three Vivaro properties are on a cistern. The whole house is filtered. In addition at the sink and the refrigerator the water and ice is run through an additional UV filter - you will notice the water is warm. We drink the water. Your group should each decide - anyone concerned should drink bottled water.  If you do prefer bottles water you can purchase gallons at the nearby gas station which saves some plastic.
  • Do you have paddleboards, kayak?
    • Vivaro - Beachfront has two paddleboards
    • a local shop has rental kayaks and paddleboards - ask at Sundowner’s
      • Always be cautious - there have been recent kayakers who have floated away and been fortunate to be rescued - there are many who have never been seen again. Staying inside the reef is smart choice.
  • Safety?
    • We consider Roatan safe. As in our hometown, there is petty theft. We have many layers of security at Vivaro and have had no issues. We are careful to lock every door and close every window when we leave to protect our belongings.
  • Groceries?
    • At stop at Eldon”s on the way from the airport is a great place to start. Smaller markets and fruit and veggies stands are in West End. The gas station has beer and snacks as well as bug spray, anti itch, antibiotics, etc.
