First of all this facility is run and operated by a local family that are extremely thoughtful and caring for the animals. The tour go through French Harbor and continues to the Monkey and Sloth Hang Out. The tour takes about 45 minutes depending on the crowd that given day. We then will head to West End for lunch at Sundowner's Beach Bar and Grill. This give some folks a chance to either shop or enjoy the water and a lounge chair in the sun.
My first trip to Roatan was in 1973 with 22 of my family members coming to visit my great uncle Mr. Harvey Mayer whom was the first North American to permanently settle in the island of Roatan in the early sixties. The day will be filled with lots of history about the people and the island itself.
Pick up is usually at 8:30 and a drop of at 2:30-3:30 depending on the ships time schedule. It take about 25 minutes to drive to Daniel Johnson Sloth Farm. Once the guest go through the animal farm we will head through an old fishing village in French Harbor. Lunch is in the west end at Sundowner's Beach Bar. There will be plenty of time for guest to swim or shop after lunch. People find their way to the Gelato shop also in west end.

You are crazy to tour Roatan with anyone other than Steve. Steve took us on an amazing tour, in which we felt like royalty being shown around the island by its patron. Everywhere we went, Steve knew the locals. He showed us a book about the history of the island and his grandfather being one of the first immigrants from California. He knew the best beach, the coolest animal sanctuary, best local food, and an exquisite beach bar. And everywhere we went, everyone knew Mr. Steve. Five stars!
