Flying to Roatan is much easier to get to than it used to be. The Roatan International Airport has daily flights to and from the mainland of Honduras and international destinations. The easiest way to travel to Roatan from the USA is to fly directly to Roatan on Continental, Delta, or Taca airlines. It is less than a 3 hour flight from Houston! It is also very easy to fly into the city of San Pedro Sula on the mainland of Honduras and take a small commuter flight to Roatan. Please send us the dates for your trip and city of origin and we will gladly help you find the easiest and most cost effective way to travel to Roatan.

Getting to Utila
As there are no direct international flights to Utila, it is a little more difficult to get to than Roatan. But it’s worth the extra effort.
From the Mainland of Honduras: Several Honduran regional airlines have flights from San Pedro Sula and La Ceiba to Utila. There is also a ferry that runs twice daily from La Ceiba to Utila.
From Roatan: There is a boat that leaves from West End to Utila several days per week. This is my favorite way to get to Utila. The schedule is not set and depends on weather and demand so if your dates are not flexible, this is probably not the best way to get to Utila.
Private Plane There is a charter company that has a small plane that can be hired for trips between the mainland of Honduras, Roatan, Guanaja, and Utila.
