Comments We were a group of 14 divers from all over the USA who have come to know one another over the last years through diving. We are from Florida, N. Carolina, Kansas City, MO, Washington State and Southern California.

One of the couples in our group has made numerous trips to Guanaja and specifically to the resort where we stayed during this trip. G&Gs Clearwater Paradise Resort. Their website is very representative of the experience and cost associated with staying there. I believe it is one of the best values in the Caribbean, once you make it there.

Why Guanaja?: Well, for me, I was largely influenced by two factors. First, my trust in my friends who have been numerous times and have endorsed it as one of the more untouched, least visited, high quality dive destinations in the Caribbean and second, my strong desire to go somewhere new and with less dive pressure. I was impressed with the topography and beauty of the island. It is the most hilly and mountainous of all the Bay Islands and reminds me a bit of Taveuni Island in Fiji. It is definitely a bit of a step back in time compared to most other dive destinations in the Caribbean and I love that.

Getting There: There are really 2 options for getting to the island of Guanaja. Option 1 is to fly into Roatan on whatever airline works best for you and then catch one of the daily Lanhsa Airline commuter flights to Guanaja that requires a brief stop in La Ceiba on the Honduras mainland before hopping back across to Guanaja. Option 2 is to look at flights that route you directly to La Ceiba without going to Roatan first (there are various options from the continental USA) and then catch a Lanhsa flight direct to Guanaja. If you are a group of 8 or more, you can work with Clearwater Resort to have them charter you a direct flight from Roatan ... Subscribe to get the full story.
