Roatan’s first Cruise Ship Port is expanding and is likely to change island’s growth and image for decades, yet few people seem to know the extent and scope of the expansion that is already taking place.
Honduras’ national football team has made great strides since its first international match in 1921 when it lost 10-1 to Guatemala. The “Catrachos” qualified three times for the FIFA World Cup: in 1982, 2010 and 2014.
Roatan never had a master plan for its road system. The island’s roads were never zoned and the current road system is the result of organic growth: occasional availability of funds; local and national politics; and access to construction equipment, spare parts and fuel.
