Where is Xbalanque

One of the benefits of being located in between West Bay and West End is the ease of access to arguably the number one and two destinations in Roatan, without giving up privacy. Some of the best dive operators on Isla Roatan are located in either West End or West Bay. This makes Xbalanque a perfect place to stay for both the diver and the non-diver. Further still, the waters off the beach are calm, and fishermen can pick guest up to show them a good time. It is not uncommon for fishing to start just moments after leaving the dock as the waters around Roatan are deep and rich with fish populations. 


Where does the name come from? 

The name Xbalanque has its origins in the Mayan language and culture. The Maya's were arguably the most advanced civilization of their time, and their one of the most spectacular ruins still exist on the mainland of Honduras, in Copan. Mayan artifacts are found on Roatan even today. 

Who was Xbalanque?

Xbalanque was a local Mayan hero. Mayan history tells of a twin god conquering the complexities and adversities of the underworld who then rose with his twin brother to become the sun and the moon. Xbalanque's twin brother was known as Hunaphu.
