Internet & Wifi Access
As technology advances, more wireless carriers from North America and Europe provide cellular phone coverage for tourists in Central America. Most traveler related businesses on Roatan provide internet access complimentary or with a purchase of some sort. There are also several internet cafes along the Main Street in Coxen Hole, but I would look for internet access near your place of interest. For example, JavaVine Cafe & Wine Bar is a good choice in West Bay and Sundowners Bar in West End. Local mobile cellular providers for the island and Honduras are Claro and Tigo, with Tigo Cellular having a better signal throughout the island.
Most U.S. Cruisers will be happy to know that U.S. Dollars are widely used on Roatan. There are several ATM machines to withdraw funds at the Mahogany Bay Cruise Center. However, it is best to use your credit cards for purchases, unless you run across a vendor outside the port where you will be required to pay in U.S. Dollars or Lempira, the currency of Honduras. Change from a transaction will probably be in U.S. Dollars at this port of call and cash advances, including travelers checks, are available at several of the banks on the island. IMPORTANT! Remember to notify your bank/credit card company before leaving your place of origin.
