Informs those interested in exploring the underwater world surrounding Roatán, Utila, Guanaja, and the Cayos Cochinos about depth and visibility, required expertise, bottom terrain, currents, marine life, and safety.
Fiallos, Maria. Roatan: Relocation & Investment Guide. Roatán, Honduras: Maria Fiallos, 2008. A must-buy for anyone considering moving to Roatán, with information on Utila, Guanaja, and La Ceiba as well. (Information is kept current with updates on the website www.roatanguide.com.)
