    The first time we went to Roatan, the highlight of an island tour was a visit to the fish packing plant.

    If you get tired of eating at Anthony's Key, the West End is a short, cheap cab ride over.

    One of the best Indian restaurants in the Caribbean - Ooloonthoo is located there surprisingly - not my opinion, read the reviews.

    Ooloonthoo Indian Cuisine | Please Call: 504-9936-5223 | Roatan Honduras
    Reservations required and they only serve 6-9 PM. Bring lots of money...

    Argentinean Grille just around the corner is a good place for steaks also. https://www.facebook.com/argentiniangrillroatan

    We liked Tong's Thai also, good view and waterfront. http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaura...land_Cuisine-West_End_Roatan_Bay_Islands.html

    Most of the nightlife on Roatan is there. Typically later in the week is more popular. Sundowners Beach Bar is a divers bar. https://www.facebook.com/sundownersbeachbar

    Sunday evening bbq at Barefoot. One of my fav evenings out and always meet new people because of the way the high tables are set up.
