ABOUT THE ISLAND
Location: 16.486059, -85.831157
The three Bay Islands of Honduras; Roatan, Utila, and Guanaja are some of the most beautiful destinations in the Caribbean.
Guanaja being the least developed and explored of the three has earned the nickname “The Green Island".
We are a hidden gem waiting for travelers seeking an experience unlike those offered by highly visited 'touristy' islands in the Caribbean.
Guanaja is a rural village. Likely you will see more locals riding horses to work than tourists wandering around. There are only a couple handfuls of cars on the island and one 10 km road connecting the South and North side of the island. Nightlife on Guanaja refers to the symphony of nocturnal critters as opposed to bars and pop hits.
Guanaja is located about 70km East of Roatan and 60 km North of Trujillo on the Honduran Mainland Coast
Getting to Guanaja
The most popular route to reach Guanaja is through Roatan.
1. Fly in to the international airport of Roatan (RTB)
2. Connect on a local 25 min flight to Guanaja (GJA)
- Private Charter (Aprx. $500 OW for up to 5 People)
2b. The Roatan Ferry Galaxy Wave
There is a ferry service available between Guanaja and Roatan. It only Travels on Weekends.
This is a great option for 1 week trips Arriving Saturday and Departing the following Saturday.
Alternate Routes for Reaching Guanaja:
- Direct Flights from the mainland La Ceiba Airport (LCB) to Guanaja.
- Charter Flights from any domestic airport.
- Ferry from Trujillo to Guanaja. (When available)
- Ferry from La Ceiba on weekends.
- If you fly in to San Pedro Sula (SAP) you can catch flights to connect to Guanaja through La Ceiba (LCE) or Roatan (RTB)
The 1.5 hr ferry ride between Roatan and Guanaja is scenic, comfortable, and ‘not bad at all’.
It is the most affordable option that also offers a more reliable schedule and almost guaranteed availability.
Flights are more vulnerable to delays or schedule changes and have limited seating/availability.
