A little off the beaten path, yet close enough to the bustling areas to get your busy-body fix in. Upachaya was exactly the type of stay we were looking for. Victor met us at the airport and the resort was just a thirty minute drive away. Nestled in the trees with the evening breeze of the ocean, this place is...

Thank you for your review. I enjoyed the enthusiasm and lively energy of the three of you and would welcome you back anytime. As stated, we are nestled away from the touristy areas, and when spending a lengthy visit, it is sometimes best to rent a car while here rather than paying the taxi fees. However, then again many people...

We stayed at the West End and did a day trip to the resort. The owner, Barb, was incredible, giving us a tour of the property and facts about the plants and wildlife. We went kayaking through the mangroves (only place on the whole island to kayak the mangroves) and then out to a reef to snorkel, seeing big sting...

Thank you for your review and I'm glad to hear you had a great time, including with Nola the driver for your return trip. Nola grew up on the property which is now Upachaya. This had been part of her Dad's farm in years past and she does have great stories about the island. Thanks again, and come back to...

We booked a boat snorkel trip with Barb before we left the States not only because the reviews were positive and the number of people on the trip was small but she got back to us right away and seemed genuinely interested in doing business with us. It was a great pick. The ocean was a little rough that day...

Thank you for your review and I like the part when you say "next trip to Roatan"! This island has so much to offer it is hard to get all the fun in on one trip. Thanks again for coming and sharing Upachaya with us. Keep us in mind for your future visit!

This was a great excursion. We were picked up on time at the cruise port and driven to Upachaya where Barb met us and told us all about her beautiful property and the vegetation. The kayaking and snorkelling was wonderful and then we enjoyed a healthy and delicious lunch. Great margaritas, too! Highly recommend this excursion.

Even though my family and I did not stay at the bed & breakfast offered here (we were a part of a cruise trip), we did embark on an amazing kayaking and snorkeling adventure through this amazing getaway.

Marco picked us up in front of cruise terminal and drove us to the lovely lodge. The owner, Barbara, met us and gave us a little tour and explained some of the native flora and fauna.

Sorry for the delay in my response, but thank you for your review. You are quite descriptive and I appreciate the detail in which you shared your experience. Yes, that drop off is quite something, and I love all the marine life we find in our little piece of the reef. Thanks again for the review and enjoy that game!

My 4th snorkelling trip with Al and the Upachya team. It takes a special operator to keep me coming back to the same place over the course of a few years. This just such a place. AL knows where all the creatures hang out. On this last trip, we saw moray eel, sea turtles, octopus, stingray, multiple barracuda, lobsters, the...

Thanks so much for your review and your continued desire to visit Upachaya and experience our tours. We continue to work hard with the Roatan Marine Park to insure this area of the reef is preserved in as pristine condition as possible. This is what keeps the variety of marine life in our vicinity.

We were picked up right outside the terminal of our cruise ship and driven to Upachaya on the north side of the island. Here we went kayaking and snorkeling.

Suzanne, thank you for visiting Upachaya and experiencing the beauty of this Mesoamerican reef here that surrounds Roatan. We feel privileged to serve folks like yourself introducing them to this reef, and it is especially gratifying when we receive high praises for our efforts.

We only got to stay for 24 hours but we had a wonderful, relaxing visit. Barb is a gracious hostess and took great care of us. There were no yoga sessions but we utilized the space for our own mini class. The pool is tranquil, well-maintained and quiet. We did some stand up paddle boarding and really enjoyed the experience....
