“What an amazing place! From it’s centralized location between the airport in Coxen Hole and West End/West Bay to the relaxing, yet never boring family-friendly atmosphere. They are also great scuba instructors! I cannot swim and have a bit of a fear of water, but Eric and Diana had me out there in 30 feet of water in no time (after the proper prep and instruction of course). I cannot wait to go back to get certified! My stay could have only been better if it could have been longer. I will be back!”

Roatan Father of Tourism

by: Bill Brady

Bill Brady arrived on Roatan as a Peace Corps Volunteer in February of 1971.

Following is his story of Paul Adams The Father of Tourism in the Bay Islands

After being on Roatan island for a few weeks getting settled & meeting people, I decided to take a walk to the north side of Roatan. I had heard reports that a man from the U.S. had started a resort in an area called Sandy Bay. I was intrigued...

At that time there were only a few vehicles operating on the Island - most going to and from on the dirt airport strip. That's why I decided to walk, and as it turned out, it was a walk I would never forget.

I headed west from my house near the airport and quickly passed through Coxen Hole which was little more than a village at that time. I turned right at the "Thicket Mouth" and headed north. The dirt road (on much the same route as it is today) soon turned into little more than a horse path. This path led to the beginning of "Remember Long Hill" (since reduced to Memba Long Hill) which basically got you over the center ridge and to the north side ofRoatan. From this point it was a short distance to the area called "Head of the Beach" and this is where the beach actually became the road. I walked along the deserted beach until I reachedLawson Rock. The "Road" went up and around the great rock and then back on the beach. It was at this point that I began to wonder why someone would build a resort in a plawould soon be answered...ce so hard to get to... this question

"Residents embraced the ideas so warmly that by June 19, 1910 the first Father's Day celebration was proclaimed in Spokane because it was the month of Dodd's father's birth.
Decades later, the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers was issued in 1966 when President Lyndon Johnson designated the third Sunday in June as Father's Day.
Father's Day in America has been officially celebrated annually since 1972 when President Richard Nixon signed the public law that made it permanent."
