Very intricate carving of cameos etc from shells. A little ways from the tourist shops but worth the short cab ride.

Don't miss this attraction while visiting Roatan!! Watch as the cameos are hand-carved into beautiful pieces of jewelry. Prices are reasonable and there is no annoying high-pressure sales pitch.

The creations at the Cameo Factory are breathtaking. We learned how cameos are created and watched as a young girl carefully carved right in front of us. Pieces large and small are amazing and for sale.

Our group thoroughly enjoyed visiting the cameo institute! There was a demo in progress, which was pretty special. The staff was extremely helpful, and several of us acquired treasures. Highly recommend this short but lovely stop.

Yes, but just about every taxi driver will want to take you on a tour... and we have had to agree to a price to take us just to the Cameo Factory. We have been there many times and really do not want to do the other stops.

I remember steps going out of the retail shop side of the building. Not sure on the entrance/info hall side. If no steps there, you could easily reverse course and exit that way. At worst, it's 2 or 3 steps. If going with... More
