The island of Roatan has been experiencing a general strike due to the residents anger due to recent increase in the cost of electrical power.
Several cruise ships have been turned away and are threatening to boycott the island for a period of 5 years. A lack of transportation to island due to the strike is causing major problems and losses to the tourism industry.
If you plan a trip to Roatan we strongly recommend checking on the current situation.
NOTE: We pay double for electrical power here in Utila than Roatan. We would be celebrating rather than rioting if we had their electrical rate!!!
