Banking and accessing your money is becoming easier on Roatan. Banks have online access and people are able to transfer money from a local USD account to their Lempira account quite easily from home on the internet.
Some banks are making it easier to transfer money from the US to your Honduran account. With Banco Continental a wire transfer from the US in the morning is in your USD account by noon! Some banks can take from 3-7 days or more.
ATM machines are popping up in several locations on Roatan. The major point is that generally they have money and are working! No longer necessary to bring Travelers Checks (which are held for 30 days and not accepted by many of the local businesses) or a lot of cash for incidentals.
ATM’s are now located in Eldons Supermarket, MegaPlaza Mall Banks – Banco Continental, BAC Credomatic, Banpais, Banco Atlantida all have ATM’s. Texaco and HSBC in Jackson Plaza. The airport has 2 ATM’s, Coxen Hole has ATM’s at each bank location, West End and West Bay have more ATM’s to access your accounts.
