We met at the dive shop in West End at 10:00 and the nine of us piled into a nice, big, air-conditioned van.
In addition to a/c, there was also a cooler of ice-cold beers for us.
A road beer at 10:00 am? Why not!
We were all ready to depart, but first? A selfie!
With the selfie out of the way and the beers open, we were ready for our journey to Jonesville. About 45 minutes into our hour-long ride, we passed by Isery – a gigantic pirate ship perched on a hilltop. Word is that it was supposed to be a super-cool nightclub that opened in the spring of 2016…..but closed immediately afterward due to the owner being arrested by the DEA….something to do with being associated with a cartel.
The club is closed, but it still makes for an excellent backdrop for pictures!
A short ride later we were driving down the hill into Jonesville, where we traded our van for a boat. That’s right, the only way to get to the Hole in the Wall Bar and Grill is by boat!
We all piled out of the van and walked down to the boat dock.
Waiting for our ride –
Here it comes!
On the short ride over to the bar, we passed by the main house and the owner’s 3 boats:
Here we are!
This place was great! It had hammocks swinging over the water, t-shirts hanging from the ceiling, and the always hospitable Captain Ed behind the bar!
We ordered two rum and ginger ales and they were served with HUGE chunks of ice!
No sissy ice here!
Ronnie settled into one of the hammocks –
And some heated matches of the ring game also began.
Did you realize that if you get the ring on the hook that you are cool?
(Well actually: YOUR’E cool!). Really, it says it right there on the game!
Turns out there was some argument about who was the coolest –
Good thing Captain Ed returned and broke up the fight…..who let Lisa behind the bar anyway?
With our bellies full of rum and beer, it was definitely time for some food –
We ordered the chicken fingers and shrimp nachos and they were delicious!
After lunch, we were able to get back on the boat and go on a tour of the mangroves. The tour was $5.00 US per person and it was definitely worth every penny!
Uh oh, rush hour traffic!
After the mangrove tour, a small dance party erupted –
Then it was time to pay our bills and hit the banos before departing.
The bathrooms were even cool in this place!
Are you ready to check out Hole in the Wall Bar and Grill for yourself?
Contact Adam at Ocean Connections to inquire about this tour or message Kendall at Ecologic Adventures Roatan to go cruising on a 50-foot catamaran for some snorkeling AND a stop at Hole in the Wall to finish the day!
And remember, if you play the ring game:
If you make it, your’e cool
(You haven’t mastered the art of combining you + are into a contraction, but you’re still cool!)
But wait! There’s more!
We still had to drive back to West End……during the drive, we had the best 90’s sing-a-long! (Sorry, no video proof. You will just have to believe us that it is was the best!)
On the way back, we stopped at the Guava Grove Resort for a few more drinks and some pool time! The owners, Cheryl and Murray, were more than hospitable to allow the nine of us to turn their nice, quiet pool into a scene from Caddyshack!
And BONUS – they had the most amazing, blended mojitos we have ever tasted AND a gorgeous sunset view too!
How did we turn their pool into a scene from Caddyshack? Check out the video here!
Next time you’re in Roatan, be sure and visit the Hole in the Wall Bar and Grill and the Guava Grove Resort. You’ll be happy you did!
And, if you play the ring game, you have a chance at being cool too!
