Los Micos Golf Resort Construction Underway on Mainland Honduras

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

Greetings,

It looks as though construction has begun on the Los Micos resort in the Bahia de Tela Honduras. This resort promises to be one of a kind in the country of Honduras with Luxury 5-star accomodations and numerous championship golf courses. The 5-star resort is currently rumored to be a Westin property.
This development will be near the town of Trujillo which is a short ferry ride to the island of Guanaja. One has to wonder if day trip excursions will be offered by this resort to visit the island. If these do indeed happen then it can only have a positive impact on Guanaja and its residents.
Also we have been informed that a new hotel, La Giralda, has recently opened on Guanaja. It looks to have taken over the place where the old Baymans Bay Club once existed.

Guanaja: why you need to visit

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

1. Best Bonefishing hands down, nothing like standing on a beautiful flat in absolutely gorgeous water looking for bones, even if they are not biting that day you still have a blast because of your surroundings.

2. Diving- Guanaja has unspoiled wildlife which lends itself to very successful dives. Qualified instructors await your visit.
Contact Bo Bush( Bo’s Island House) or George of Clearwater Paradise and either will take you to the best places.

3. Scenery- you can hike to the top of several of Guanajas’ peaks and have glorious views of the neighboring islands and the mainland

4. Investment Opportunity- Guanaja is still relatively inexpensive for Caribbean beachfront property. Lots of opportunity to find your retirement spot or make a wise investment.

Visit Guanaja you will be glad you did!

New Military Base on Guanaja???

Here is a link to an article that was recently published in a Honduran periodical El Heraldo. I am not really sure how I feel about US involvement on the island, what do you think?

Honduras to Build a New Military Base
Escrito por Yllen Riquelme

10 de julio de 2010, 00:05Tegucigalpa, Jul 10 (Prensa Latina) Honduras will
build a new military base in the Caribbean, in addition to another military base
build with funding from the U.S.A in the same region with the pretext of
fighting drug trafficking.

Foreign Minister Mario Canahuati said that the new military base will be in
Guanaja, in the Department of Islas de la Bahia, but he did not gave any further
details.

Last April Washington and Tegucigalpa opened a base in Gracias a Dios
Department, near the border with Nicaragua, in which the U.S government invested
2 million dollars.

The military base is under the coordination of the Honduran Navy, but under the
supervision of the U.S. Southern Command.

The U.S.A also has an Air Force Station in that country, in Palmerola, in
Comayagua Department, where President Manuel Zelaya was initially taken after
the coup.

Popular organizations and human rights defenders warned about a return to the
militarization in the country after the coup.

World Cup Quarterfinals begin tomorrow and Honduras is on the outside looking in…

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

Qualifying for the World Cup is an accomplishment in itself and because the country of Honduras has not been since 1982 they should be congratulated. Unfortunately the best of the three results in South Africa was a tie in the final group game. Because they lost 2 games and tied the third the Honduran team did not advance past the group stage of the tournament. Also the two finalist from the last World Cup did not make it past the group stage either. Honduras had a competitive team but lacked the ability to finish.
I will be pulling for Ghana to win it all from here as they are the sole representatives left from the host continent.

Moving in a completely different direction it looks like Guanaja may have gotten some much needed rain from Alex which passed the island as a tropical storm, crossed the Yucatan peninsula and became a hurricane in the southern Gulf of Mexico

We hope everyone on the island is doing well.

Former US President Jimmy Carter and First Lady Rosalynn Carter visit Guanaja

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

Obviously this is not a traditional news source, but Guanaja Sharon is the ultimate news source on the island of Guanaja and her blog has some amazing information that I wanted to share with everyone.

http://featherridge.blogspot.com/2010_05_01_archive.html

As the title of this post says President Carter was on Guanaja recently and spent a week bonefishing and relaxing. Sharons’ blog has a couple of pictures that are proof he was on the island. The bonefishing on the island is second to none!

So one must ask if a former President of the United States is visiting an island for vacation should I consider Guanaja for my next vacation?

The answer is a resounding, YES! Visit www.guanajaguide.com for all your information to plan a Guanaja Vacation

Hope everyone is well.

Bay Islands of Honduras article in USA Today

Monday, March 15th, 2010

Hi,

The Bay Islands had a very nice write up in the largest newspaper publication in the United States this past week. Guanaja was mentioned but really only in passing as the better part of the article pertained to Roatan and the massive amounts of growth seen on that island over the last 10 years.

Here is the link for your reading enjoyment: http://www.usatoday.com/travel/destinations/2010-03-11-roatan-honduras_N.htm

Hope everyone is doing well

Congratulations Honduras!!!

With a goal in extra time last night the United States was able to tie Costa Rica in the last qualifying match for the 2010 World Cup. This tie game and the Honduras victory over El Salvador last night has assured the country of Honduras an invitation to the World Cup for the first time since 1982. Hopefully a monumental achievement like this will galvanize the country and bring peace. I am sure that the country is buzzing with anticipation of this huge event.

Visit Guanaja, Honduras.

We want to hear from You!

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

Good Evening…
Since we launched our website www.guanajaguide.com we have had a tremendous response from residents of the Guanaja, as well as people interested in visiting the jewel of the Bay Islands.

We want to hear from more of you! One way we keep our information on the site up to date for travelers is to hear from the folks that reside on Guanaja. Any large events happen on the island recently? Any new developments that are in the works? Please email us with any news and we will be happy to share it with everyone who visits the site.

One new development to speak of is the opening of Clearwater Paradise ( www.clearwaterparadise.com). It looks like the owners of the property are realizing a longtime dream that they have had. This is what Guanaja can afford you, a wonderful place to live or retire, that wont break the bank but is as beautiful as any island in the Caribbean.

What Coup?

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

I spoke to a friend on the island today and they said that you would not know of the political unrest in Honduras while on Guanaja unless you saw it on the news or read about it in the newspaper. This is the true beauty of the island of Guanaja. You can get as far away from reality as you want on the island and probably will not have to check in for many years because the majority of Guanaja remains undeveloped. You can escape and walk on beaches a mile long and not see another person. If you must get in contact or catch up with world news you can do it with ease. It is an ideal vacation for those wanting to escape the stresses of everyday life.
We are hoping that the newly installed leaders of Honduras stand strong against Zelaya and the communist left to insure the country protects its democratic elections and Constitution.
