Getting to and from Roatan is getting even easier. Recently, airlines announced that tourists would be able to fly directly into Roatan rather than needing connecting flights or to come to the island via boat. They will be able to come into Roatan from four US Gateways according to an article on Bay Islands Voice. This will increase the number of seats on direct flights by nearly 600 during this winter alone. Many companies are starting to offer this service, as they know more and more people are making Roatan a vacation destination, and it also happens to be the home of quite a few expats who may want to travel back and forth regularly.
