Why Travel to Roatan?
Experience a dive vacation with Reef House Lodge. This travel destination is located on a beautiful little cay, or island, just off the Southern coast of the Eastern end of the island of Roatan. We are just a 2 minute boat ride from the town of Oak Ridge. Most of our guests fly into Aeropuerto Internacional Juan Manuel Gálvez (RTB) in Coxen Hole, though some Ferry from La Ceiba or cruise or sail, etc.
Getting to Roatan
When it comes to traveling to Roatan, there are several major airlines that offer direct flights to the island. From the U.S., you can get here from Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, Miami and New York, among others. Elsewhere in the world, look for airlines that serve our island. There are plenty:
Customs and the Roatan Airport
A little about what to expect once you’ve traveled to the island of Roatan:
On arrival to Aeropuerto Internacional, you’ll be directed to kiosks where waiting customs agents will ask a few questions before sending you on to baggage claim.
Once you gather your bags, you will place them on a conveyer for x-ray inspection. After that, simply walk around and pick them up on the other side of the machine as they exit.
Things can be a little chaotic at our tiny airport, but we will be there waiting for you. Watch for someone with “Reef House” sign. We go out of our way to make sure you don’t have to run around the airport looking for your ride.
Getting to Reef House Lodge
Once we connect, we’ll get your gear loaded, and take you by van to the resort. It is about a 45 minute drive to Oak Ridge. You’ll travel through local towns and weave through hillsides and jungles on the way. The roads are well-traveled, but not so well maintained.
Once in Oak Ridge, it’s just a short ferry ride to the resort. Often times, the ferry will be one of our own boats–sometimes our dive boat, the Henry Morgan. We’ll make it easy by arranging all of the connections for you.
We can also arrange pickup from elsewhere on Roatán. If you are staying at another dive resort, we’ll be happy to bring you here to explore our pristine Eastern Roatan reefs.
