Hi Travis, do you have a hotel that's "linked" to your dive center? I was in Roatan in February, got my open water cert with Stuart (love that guy!), and want to come back soon. I was staying at the Green Bamboo (shout out to Jenny!), but her place is booked up pretty much to next year, so I'd like to find a reasonable place (for one person) near your shop. Any suggestions? Thanks. Sylvia

You should contact island divers, Travis is really quick at responding and makes every effort to accommodate your wants. If his shop doesn't go there, he can probably tell you who does.
