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
