Recently, we started seeing our island start to slowly come back to life, with American Airlines resuming operations in late August and the Utila and Galaxy Wave ferries following shortly afterwards. Curfew hours are easing up and restaurants and hotels are beginning to open their doors again, prepared with stringent biosecurity measures to ensure the safety of their guests.
The Fishing Tournament is Happening!
Our island is beginning to host events again, modified to incorporate proper social distancing measures. On September 27th, there was a road bike race hosted by Roatan Point to Point 2020 that raised funds for the island’s COVID center via fundraising from the 180 cyclists that participated. Roatan’s famous International Fishing Tournament, normally held in September, will take place the 8th – 11th of October, celebrating 20 years of hosting the most anticipated sport fishing event of the year. If you can’t make it to the tournament this time, make sure to follow along the excitement on social media.
