"Sand flies" Isla de Roatán Warnings Or Dangers Tip by simbals

Isla de Roatán Warnings and Dangers: 24 reviews and 28 photos

Watch out for these - perhaps the only annoying thing about the island. Always wear insect repellant spray (as strong as possible) as these things are invisible but leave multiple bites all over if not protected. We got hit badly on our first day when walking on the beach and also taking a boat taxi.

The sand flies can (obviously) be found on the beaches so, as said above, always wear repellant!

Apart from that, enjoy an incredible place.
