I encourage any discussion, especially from a trip report, that brings Guanaja to light. I believe it’s the “next big thing”.

The most common underlying question is in regards to “getting from here to there”, followed by the subliminal: do they have a reliable supply line from the “third world” to Guanaja?

It’s an adventure. I’ve been there only times over many years. (versus 45 trips to Roatan)

Guanaja has yet to bear and suffer the real cause of reef degradation...topsoil disturbance due to land development.

Go now, it’s only a matter of time.

In that spirit, here is a review from some close friends of mine, who I think can be trusted to share an objective opinion. It is their review of a trip to Guanaja and they are planning a return trip: https://www.atabardivers.com/clearwater

Good catch-- That must be a typo of some sort or a confusion with some other hurricane that came through in 2016. I will actually be seeing the author of this review tomorrow and get some clarification.

Mitch was "The Big One". I think pretty much wiped out tourism to Guanaja for years.
