Roatan Covid-19 Vaccine Update
It was reported some 189,600 Vaccines have arrived to Honduras and are available for Honduran citizens and residents. So people are being vaccinated and requesting vaccines. You must present proper identification and a receipt of a public utility service to receive the vaccine. Health workers, seniors and people that work in tourism with high risk of exposure to COVID are first to receive the vaccine. Read More… vaccines news

Travel Protocol Update
If you are fully vaccinated by the FDA or FDA Approved and coming to Roatán from the United States, a negative Covid test no more than 72 hours before traveling to Honduras is still required. CVS does them for free if you have insurance or Medicare. Even if vaccinated, a negative Covid test no more than 72 hours before arriving in the US. AKR does them for $50 with results in 2 hours. We found a website to look up a testing facility that will satisfy the entry requirements for Honduras. TestForTravel
