"Juan Carlos was very personal and professional. We wanted to go on an island tour to see some of the local spots and that's exactly what he did. Our tour started with driving up to the point behind the airport and then taking a small hike up the hill to a beautiful spot that allowed us to see much of the island. You could see both sides and we were able to get a beautiful view of the airport and Coxen Hole. We proceeded on the "only" road on the island and visited the small villages. We did not want to go to the tourist type attractions on our tour, but Carlos would have gladly taken us there if that was our wish. We went as far east as Fantasy Island where we were able to see an abundance of spider monkeys which ate sugar out of our hands and we saw bats which flew freely among the trees that lined the beach. We also saw tapors, which are like an island version of our squirrels. Our tour started at 9:00 and we didn't return until 4:00 in the afternoon. Our final stop was at a Cameo Factory, where we saw young boys carving in fine detail beautiful scenes onto ivory. All in all it was a very relaxing day and gave us a good picture of life on the island".

"The tour Carlos gave of the island was wonderful. It was so nice to get away from the main tourist area and see various sites around the island. I especially enjoyed visiting the Iguana Farm and having the opportunity to feed the the iguanas. Fantasy Island was a great place to see animals too, as we saw deer, peacocks, tapirs, monkeys, and even a bat. The views of the ocean and the reef during the tour were spectacular. I definitely recommend Carlos as a tour guide because he is very nice, very knowledgeable, and is completely fluent in English."

We went to Roatan Island in April, 2005 on the Norwegian Sea and had the good fortune of having Carlos Rodriguez as our personal tour guide. Carlos met us at the ship, and we could instantly tell we were going to have a good time in his care. Carlos is personable, intelligent, fluent in English and Spanish, and seems to know about everyone on the island. He gave us an all-day personal tour of his beloved Roatan, and it was the highlight of our trip. We told him exactly what we wanted to do and he was perfectly accommodating, but he also made suggestions that turned out to be absolutely wonderful. Carlos is a true Christian gentleman and we hated to leave him at the end of the day because we felt like we had made a good friend. We would love to go back someday to see him and to see more of this gorgeous island.
