The Essentials

  • Insect repellent - Roatan's "noseeums" are legendary and you will need to protect yourself. Consider bringing a product that does not contain deet, as deet is harmful to the reef and marine life. Avon's Skin So Soft bath oil spray works great! Bring a deet-containing product as backup in case "plan A" doesn't work for you.
  • A flashlight - you may want to explore some of our nature trails at night
  • Sunscreen/Sunblock - the SPF that is appropriate for your skin type
  • Sunglasses/Hats
  • Long Pants and Boots for Hiking - this is especially important if you plan to do the Picacho Peak hike as there is cutting grass and its best to have your lower legs covered

Important Information for Snorkelers

While we have some snorkeling gear available for use by our guests, Honduran Public Health officials have requested we recommend that visitors purchase their own gear and bring it with them (this minimizes the possibility of interpersonal transfer of pathogens). Having properly fitting snorkel gear also contributes to a better snorkeling experience. If your gear fits your face and your feet correctly, you will be able to enjoy the reef a lot more than if your gear is leaky, too tight, too loose, or otherwise not ideal. Minimum items necessary are a mask, a snorkel, and fins. Some people also prefer an inflatable snorkeling jacket. We recommend you try everything in a pool at home before your trip and make any necessary adjustments and/or changes.

Carry-on Bag

While it doesn't happen that often anymore, airlines do occasionally "lose" checked luggage and it can sometimes take days for them find it and get it to Roatan. Therefore it's best to take the precaution of packing a carry-on bag with a change of clothes, any medications you take, contact lenses and/or eyeglasses, sunglasses, swimsuit, insect repellent, sunscreen, and any other practical items you consider essential to your sense of well-being.


Some guests prefer bring their own yoga mat if they plan on doing yoga while at Paya. We do have mats available, however.


If you are really into your music, and must have it with you on your vacation, we suggest you bring a speaker base for your iPod. The DVD players in the rooms play CDs through the TV speakers, but this may not be sufficient for some. Having an iPod base also allows you to enjoy your music at different places around the property, adding to your experience. (Obviously any music playing must be done with consideration for the rights of other guests to have peace and quiet, but Paya is a big property and you can usually find private spots).
