Description


  • Air-conditioned, fully licensed and insured transportation!
  • Round trip transportation from your Roatan cruise pier!
  • Certified, bilingual (English / Spanish) speaking excursion guide!
  • Visit Greenfield Children's Orphanage run by Sandy Bay Lighthouse Ministries!
  • Interaction with the children during vacation season!
  • Photo stop at one viewpoint and short beach stop at West End!

Give back to the local community and see a few local sites at the same time with this excursion. Greenfield Children's Orphanage is run by Sandy Bay Lighthouse Ministries which is a non-profit, non-denominational organization that provides a loving, safe shelter for at-risk children as well as a quality bilingual education to prepare the children for a better future. On your way to the home you will make a quick stop in Spanish Town to take pictures, and after leaving you will visit West End to see the beach, as well as sample local coffee and chocolates. You will spend about two hours at the home; which will include meeting the children, a short devotional, and a chance to even play a game of soccer, one of their favorite pastimes.

A current needs list can be found at this link Current Needs. If you are considering an In-Kind donation for the children they suggest an article of clothing rather than a toy, toiletries rather than candy. Should you choose to bring any donation items from the U.S. be sure to "DECLARE" them on the ship the day before you are scheduled to arrive in Roatan. The cost of this excursion is to cover the transportation only; the home will graciously accept cash donations should you want to donate to their worthy cause.

You will meet your guide at a convenient location directly outside your Roatan cruise ship pier. They will lead you to your transportation. On the 35-minute ride to the Greenfield Children's Orphanage, you will make a quick photo stop at the Spanish Town viewpoint. Your guide will talk with you about the history and culture of Roatan.

When you arrive at the orphanage you will meet the directors, Orsy and Banesa Cruz, who are natives of Honduras. They are the "parents" of this big family. You will attend a program with the children, which includes a short devotional. You will learn about the way the home provides for them, as well as see the facilities. The children love to play soccer and will invite you play a scrimmage with them! They enjoy interacting with the visitors that come to see them. They are appreciative of the time spent with them, playing or just talking them about their interests, hopes, and dreams. The two hours will pass quickly, you will say your goodbyes, board your transportation and head to West End Beach for a 30 minute stop.

Please note that the children are in school February to October and cannot interact with guests. November to January is vacation time where they can visit with guests.

Once at West End Beach you will see the beautiful white sand beach and blue ocean water. Stick your toes in the water. Relax in the sand. You will also have the opportunity to try delicious local made chocolates and sip on a hot cup of flavorful fresh brewed coffee at a local beachfront shop (food and drinks not included in the cost). Then you will go directly back to your cruise ship pier, your hearts full after spending your time giving back to the community of Roatan.

My husband and I looked forward to this opportunity to use our cruise time not only for our own personal enjoyment, but also to bless others. In the months prior to the cruise I was able to connect with Sandy Bay Lighthouse via Facebook & email, learn about the work they are doing, help support the work financially and through prayers, and become familiar with their program. Ernesto, our driver for the excursion, was wonderful. He first took us on a tour of the island, then was willing to stop at a local supermarket where we wanted to pick up some food supplies to bring with us to the orphanage. Ernesto was a great help with suggestions for the types of items that would be the greatest blessing to the ministry, and helping us with the exchange rate. When we arrived at Sandy Bay Lighthouse we were introduced to the staff and several of the children. Gabby, one of the older youth, shared information about the ministry, showed a video explaining some of the history and current projects, took us on a tour and answered all of our questions. She was a wonderful guide - both knowledgeable and friendly! (Prayers for her future as she begins nursing school on the mainland this month!) We also met the team leader of a mission team from Canada who were there to serve at the orphanage and in the community, and he shared additional insights. After our time at Sandy Bay Lighthouse, Ernesto continued with a tour to various sights on the island and also took us to the chocolate factory for some tasty treats. If your heart\'s desire is to spend some time being an encouragement & blessing to others, I would highly recommend this excursion!

My husband and I enjoyed our time at Sandy Bay Lighthouse and found Gaby to be a wonderful guide, showing us around the facility and explaining the ministry. She answered all of our questions. Our driver was also very familiar with the ministry and was willing to stop at a local market when we asked to purchase pantry items to donate. Would definitely recommend! It’s a great way to give back to the community.

Truly wonderful way to spend a day!

When we booked this excursion we were really doing so on faith. Little did we know that our faith was EXACTLY what was enhanced as our tour guide was a community pastor who allowed us to stop by a grocery store and purchase food staples to present to the orphanage "parents" Orsy and Banesa Cruz upon arrival. I don't think they were expecting us to arrive with needed supplies. I think that most people sign up to go on this excursion with a desire to visit with the children and learn more about what life is like for them ... maybe with connections in the future to help or make a financial donation (although not solicited). The conversation with Orsy and Banesa was great. We were able to pray together and ask about ways we could stay connected and offer assistance in the future. They are building a school (expected to open in February) and are in need of a lot of supplies. If you are on a cruise (Carnival cruise was the one we were on) and are looking for something of value to do in Roatan Honduras port, DON'T HESITATE to book this excursion. Johan Munoz was the guide and he customized all of our available time to suite our desires! BOOK THIS EXCURSION if your heart is into doing something for the community's orphan population. The orphanage has a website that they maintain their most up to date needs. We just chose to purchase food for their pantry because bringing goods was a bit too costly and difficult to carry. Plus ... it stimulates their economy so ... win/win. God is good... and this is a great excursion if you want to be a blessing as well as be blessed.

My friend and I went on this excursion for one of the port days of our seven-day cruise and were very glad we did. Ernesto showed amazing hospitality from the moment we met up with him. He is very passionate about the island and showed us many places and informed us about many things. He was amazing! We had a good time at the orphanage as well. We were able to interact with the children and learn about the ins and outs of the orphanage. We were very pleased with this excursion and plan to do it again if we ever go back to Roatan!!!

My son & I had a wonderful experience on this excursion. He was a great learning experience for him. Johan made sure we had a great experience. He also took us zip lining (add'l cost), chocolate factory, and some local shopping. He was funny, down to earth, and 110% accommodating! I would recommend him to anyone...you definitely won't be disappointed!
