By Bus -- During daylight hours, minibuses ply back and forth from one end of the island to the other on Roatán's one main road for a fare of L20 to L40 ($1-$2) per person, depending on how far you travel. Most buses will travel only east or west, from Coxen Hole to one end of the island.

By Car -- Several car-rental agencies have stands at the airport, including Caribbean Rent a Car (tel. 504/2455-6950; and Avis (tel. 504/3374-8964; Prices range from L855 to L1,520 ($45-$80) per day.

By Taxi -- Taxi stands are located in every major tourist center, and waiting taxis sit outside most of the island's largest resorts. Prices are relatively high, compared with the mainland. A ride from the airport or Coxen Hole to the West End will run about L300 to L400 ($15-$20). After 6pm, when the buses stop running, fares go up. Colectivo taxis, which pick up other passengers, are a cheaper option and run set routes much like a bus.

By Water Taxi -- Water taxi service runs daily from 9am to 9pm and is a convenient way to get between West End and West Bay. Just flag down a passing boat at any dock and one should stop. The fare is L50 ($3).

By Scooter -- You can rent motorized scooters at stands across the island. Captain Van's Rentals (tel. 504/2403-8751;; L740 ($39) per day) on the West End and in West Bay is the most popular and accessible operator for visitors. They'll also rent by the week at a discounted rate.
