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.
From its obscure beginnings as a dime-and-a-dozen wreck, Tulum has become the most photographed wreck in the Eastern Caribbean. Likely a million of cruise shippers visiting Roatan have taken a picture of it and hundreds of thousands of visitors arriving at the Galaxy Wave Ferry
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.
