Anyone done this??Thoughts? 2 nights Pico Bonito

5 nights Henry Morgan Resort

I have not done that vacation package but I did read all about it in a travel brochure and it sounded awesome.

Freedom Ryder 8-)…………………

The package is 8 days / 7nights.You stay at the Lodge at Pico Bonito for 2 nights and while you are there a guide takes you thru the cloud forest for a hike. In the afternoon you visit the butterfly farm and the Serpentary.In the afternoon of day 3 you head to the La Ceiba Airport and fly to Roatan to the Henry Morgan resort for the 5 remaining nights.They suggest you visit the Institute of Marine Sciences or the Roatan Museum, go diving as well as deep sea fishing, canopy tour etc…..Day 8 you transfer back to La Ceiba Airport and head home.They also offer an optional second week vacation in either La Ceiba or Roatan.This vacation is offered thru ‘Conquest Vacations’.

Yep–freedom that is the info we got too—we thought it sounded awesome! BUT–is there any one out there who has done it recently. There is a review of the 2 hotels in the hotel section from someone who did this particular combo but it is a few years old–lots can change in a few years…

Hola BoowaaccaaThat is right. A lot can change in a few years especially in Honduras.Wossa and I will be at the ‘Henry Morgan’ in March so we will try to find out some information from the staff and guests and see if anyone has recently done this vacation package.

Who knows, maybe a guest at the ‘Henry Morgan’ is on that tour package when we arrive.

Hey Freedom–we booked!! So we too will be at the Henry Morgan in March–Mar 19 to 24–maybe we will see you there! LOLWE will also be doing an intro dive–our first! We are very exicted!Did you get a good deal for the Henry Morgan? Are you the same person that also spends a lot of time on the Cuba forum–I think I recognize your name..?

Hola Boowaaccaa Wossa and I will be at the Henry Morgan from March 14-21, so I am sure we will see you there.When we tried to book for the HM all the vacation packages were gone but then Wossa got someone form YTT to find us a package.

We paid 1309 plus diving but we have seen it cheaper for different weeks. We were limited to what weeks we could head to Honduras so really the week of the 14th was our only choice no matter what the price.

Yes, I am the same Freedom Ryder from the Cuba Forum.

1309 including airfare? I think I kind of like what boowaaccaa is doing, that really interests me, so I am excited to hear all about it when you return.

of course I am always excited to hear about ya’alls adventure too. Hopefully there isn’t any water spiders down there with the sharks. Poor Wossa isn’t going to know what to do, protect his rear from razor bites or have his eyes out for water spideys

Seriously though…Must learn more,.,,,

$1309 with airfare, I think it might of come down a little since we booked, but we was so tight on what week we could hook up, we just wanted to make sure we could get to Roatan to dive. At the time of booking it was completely sold out for the week we wanted, so we have been lucky.Deputy, why do I get the feeling that you secretly hope there is water spiders down there so you can see pictures of me screaming like a girl…. ;)….I just hope the sharks eat the spiders, if that fails, I can only hope Freedom has a Plan B to get me out alive.Wossa……… ;D

HolaI just found the invoice. Wossa we were both wrong on the price, lolIt says here $1,334.00 plus $193.00 Taxes, for a total of $1527.00 per person.

We have to book the diving separately plus pay extra for Nitrox as well as the shark specialty dive course thru Padi.

wossa Guest HolaI just found the invoice. Wossa we were both wrong on the price, lol Blind leading the blind as usual……lol……. ;D

Just gotta make sure we get on the plane this time with more then 10 seconds to spare….

Wossa……. ;D

Hola Boowaaccaa That price I quoted is for a week at the Henry Morgan Resort.It is not the same package that you booked with the 2 nights Pico Bonito, 5 nights Henry Morgan Resort.

Freedom Ryder 8-)………………

Thanks Freedom—when we were looking the henry Morgan was a lot more then the AI in La Cebia and the La Cebia property looked very nice so that was what we were leaning to. I am glad that we did more research as the Henry Morgan NOW loks way better (nicer beach and better snorkling for one!). THEN we found the Reef and Forest on exitnow.ca–which was a bit of a fluke as it wasn’t on my regular sites for trip looking. I think we got a GREAT deal $972 taxes in–but it seems like that is the ONLY week where the price was that low…..(I hope there isn’t some bad reason for the price to be a bargain..:(
Anyways getting very exicted………25 days and counting!

wossa Guest Hey BoowaaccaaThats an awesome deal you got, you just can’t go wrong for that kind of money. That week might be lower because of the Easter weekend, who knows and who cares when you can get away for that deal……lol… ;D ;DYou will have a blast I am sure……see you in the bar for a pina colada!!

Wossa…….. ;D

Hola BoowaaccaaWossa and I will see you at the resort the day before we go.Phlatlanders, from the Cuba Forum has made us each a ‘Debbie’s Logo Button’ to wear so we will be easy to spot.

The button will have the ‘Palm Tree’ that is at the top of the forum.

Ok–we will see you there.
Hey Freedom–have you done any of the ziplines in Roatan? We have just stared to look but since you were there before I thought I’d ask…..

I did not get a chance to any of the ziplines my last trip to Roatan since I did 19 dives in a week.I was underwater all of the time and only had 1 afternoon to explore Coxen Hole.We do however want to try the zipline as well as visit a few different areas of the Island this time around.

The ziplines sound awesome.

Hmmmmm … do I not remember someone questioning my choice of doing this in Costa Rica?

Hey RumrunnerSince your little adventure in Costa Rica doing the ‘Ziplines’ I have been reading all sorts of reviews from tourists that have also put their lives on the line to try the ‘Ziplines’.I have now talked myself into trying this crazy thing so I can experience the adventure for myself, lol.

I will try it near the end of my trip after my dives are all over. That way if I happen to break an ankle then I wont be too worried about it.

Hola! We met people who did this reef and forest tour .They enjoyed it. Pico Bonito was very quiet,only 8 people. The bar wasn’t included but it wasn’t expensive. Be aware that there are sometimes problems with your arrival at Henry Morgan They are often overbooked and send you to their other property at La Sirenas just down the beach.It is not very nice and the rooms are very small. Your Conquest rep isn’t very helpful as she also sells real estate for the hotel.Therefore her loyalties are divided! This problem seems to occur for people who split their time at different resorts . Forewarned is forearmed hopefully.

That is good information to know Mia.Wossa and I would like to do the split vacation but we would not want to end up in shabby resort when we thought we would be at the Henry Morgan Resort for the remaining 5 nights.Our other concern is the amount of luggage we bring on vacations. Most of it is for ‘Humanitarian Aid’, but will the plane hold the tourists plus all of our luggage?.

I have seen a picture of the plane as well as heard stories and it looks kind of small and sounds a little unsafe, lol

We will have to give the split vacation a little more thought before we go ahead and book it.

Freedom Ryder 8-)……………….

Everyone thanks for the tips!Both items concern me–I will stand firm on staying at the Henry Morgan—that will be crap if they try that with us–!!!!! Lastly on the note of the Aid–we just got approval to bring it down from SkyService and yes we too we going to bring it on the little plan as where we are in Pico Bonito is too remote to get any of the supplies anywhere. Besides we will only be there 2 days so we were planning to bring them to Roatan–I wonder if it will be an issue on this little plane..??

Hola Boowaaccaa That is awesome that you will stand your ground at staying at the Henry Morgan Resort instead of letting them ship you off to another resort.How much extra weight will you be bringing for Humanitarian Aid to Roatan?.I am concerned about the weight of our bags since when Wossa and I travel we have our own personal items bags, plus our Scuba Diving bags, plus this trip we have 2 extra bags that each weigh 55 lbs for Humanitarian Aid.When we see you at the resort let us know about the size of the plane as well as the condition of it in case we do decide to do the split vacation next year.Wossa and I will be a the Henry Morgan Resort from March 14th – 21st.Is it the 20th that you will be arriving at the HM Resort?. I am thinking it is but I want to double check so we can hook up for a couple of drinks, etc…..
