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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

An Earthquake of 7.1 Magnitude rocks the country of Honduras

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

A 7.1 magnitude quake with an epicenter 80 miles northeast
of La Ceiba, Honduras awoke the residents of the Bay islands this morning at 3:24 am.

I have spoken to a resident of Guanaja and they
said that they had experienced a very big shake but that all
seemed to be well on the island. This resident also said that
residents of Bonacca were very concerned about a possible
Tsunami warning which had been issued. This warning has since
been rescinded.
After doing some research I was able to find the last date
of a powerful quake to hit Honduras. This quake was 6.5 in
magnitude and occurred in 1999.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all affected by this tragedy.

Bay Islands in our sights

Sunday, May 3rd, 2009

We are going to have a unique experience at the end of this week. We are traveling to the Bay Islands and upon our arrival in Roatan we will be boarding the Expectations 43 captained by David Lee ( www.expectations43.com).

We will be sailing to the island of Utila for Thursday evening. We have hopes of spotting whale sharks and getting some video footage of them.We are excited about checking out an island we have never visited.

The next day we will sail about 5 hours to Cayos Cochinos, which is a Honduran nature reserve. It is a chain of 12-13 cays. We will spend Friday night in Cayos Cochinos and then we are onto Guanaja. We should arrive in Guanaja sometime in the morning on Saturday after a 6-7 hour sail. Captain Lee has outriggers on his catamaran so we will be fishing on all of the sails hoping to catch Yellowfin Tuna.
