Comments [
I recently enjoyed a couple of weeks with Sueno del Mar on Roatan's west end. This is my kind of place. Comfortable clean rooms ocean view with friendly staff. No restaurant but many within walking distance. Near night activities but quiet at night. Dived Mary's place, and Aquila among others, good experience all around, highlight Gio's in French Harbor and something truly special for Medical dental personel

While in Roatan I volunteered to do dentistry at Peggy Stranges' new clinic/hospital. Met many dedicated enthusiastic young people visiting Roatan to do volunteer health care. Peggy's operation had just moved into new quarters and I found my experience very good for my soul.

The patients were very appreciative, the staff friendly and helpful and all in all I had a great week. The dental clinic is better stocked with instruments and equipment than other places I have volunteered in as Peggy has experience working at Ohio State University in their Oral Surgery Department.

I would recommend those Dentists and Hygenists (especially) and Medical Doctors and nurses who enjoy great diving and want a rewarding experience helping those who really need you consider consider volunteering to work at Miss Peggy's Clinica Esperanza. Contact Peggy at www.MissionRoatan.org, peggystranges@yahoo.com.

Take your dive gear and favorite intruments, perhaps some supplies you can donate and you will have what I think is a complete vacation the patients are wonderful and Peggy is a true saint.

Sincerly
Bill Edell DDS
