|Subject: || [roatan] Nude beaches, phones, DKE, plumbing, parties
Nude beaches are all sorts of places here--but since they're illegal
have to ask off list. No one cares about clothes rules unless
advertise and/or offer a nude beach publicly--say in West End or West Bay.
Though I've seen an island woman of about 90 years of age strip down and
change clothes right on the West Bay beach without any qualms--AND tons of
Europeans at Henry Morgan do the topless gig all the time. Still that's a
VERY public area in West End open to children--so some folks around WILL
Many poorer island folks bathe outdoors--they probably jes' don't expect
pale-skinned folks to do so--sunburn and bugs make it a silly sight to
I'm with DKE--don't knock a good skinny dip till you've tried one!!!!
I seriously doubt that there's anyone here who has done the rooms for rent
gig living on Roatan for longer than a week who has NOT had guests who
"clothing optional" experiences from time to time. We simply allow them
privacy on our remote beach and choose not to "notice."
We're small and beaches are not open to the public in our area--just to
guests. Our locals know enough not to be peeping toms--IF they want to
their jobs, eh? As long as you're not looking for an audience in a place
with tons of folks around it's not a big deal.
Now if I could just lose about 25 lbs?
We once had a reservation request from a guy named, "Nude Bubba." He
our entire place for 2 weeks with his family--and no clothes. After some
debate we sent him further East--then he got turned down. In
(or long--it doesn't matter--it's illegal either way) a totally
vacation experience is just too risky on Roatan. Besides, diving nude for
two weeks just posed a few too many risks of dis"member"ment--as did the
fishing Bubba had planned. But the ocassional topless sunbather
night beach walkin' couple bothers most of us with a private beach not at
all. Does it any grownup these days? If so, Roatan may NOT be the place
Can't help you unless I know if the place you are staying even has access
phone signals. Some places on West End and East End can't get enough
for data transfer for E-mail on cellular phones. We have E-mail here for
guests, but only the internet cafes offer E-mail to the public due to high
DKE IS real. I've met him--had him in my house for a party. He's NOT
cheap--he brought the good rum! But that was only once. Problem is, when
he's on Roatan (not often enough) he typically has a busload of kids and
only here a few weeks or so at a time.
Hole in the Wall once had plumbing to match it's name--but no longer. Now
the toilet flushes into a real pipe!!!
Have them here when the mood strikes -- or for our guests. Isn't cheap to
do--so we tend to do it for repeat customers who ask us to do an island
"party till you drop"--or for folks who are willing to chip in for the
several cases of beer needed.
Hole in the Wall is much more inexpensive.
Want to dance? Try Fosters on any given Friday might--Bolongos on
Or just dance anywhere--anytime! No one here cares!!!
Or come here and offer to pick up the tab for the beer/munchies and I can
pull off a HUGE party anytime!!!!
Coffee spills, explodes, and overflows? Use half a pack--will still be
plenty strong and won't overflow. Try it--it still comes out VERY strong.
Being a Cajun used to chicory, I can swear that Oro doesn't have chicory
enough to count, just is good strong and yet mellow coffee. We make an
excellent cappuccino with it here by just grinding it a bit more with an
crank-style grinder. Coffee is a BY GAWD to us!
