Obviously I'm worried about this enough to post a question about it, although when I imagine presenting this to you all it seems rather silly. I know it's a small island, and the owner of my property has told me that there's really only one main road in Roatan and you can't really get lost - but still. I wonder, without a GPS and a cell phone with a maps app (hello, technology-dependent!) how easy it will be to get around the island to go to places we want to get to?
We're staying in the East End (Punta Blanca, near Marble Hill Farms) in a rental property for two weeks. We're renting a car for the entire time we are there. Our property owner has given us directions from the airport to the house, and it seems like getting to the grocery stores on the way there is easy enough - but we have many places we want to go! All of the restaurants we've read about on TA, some excursions we want to do, snorkeling, etc. Will they be relatively easy to find without plugging in an address and going? I actually have quite a good sense of direction and feel like after a while I'll be fine, but it is my first time traveling outside of the country (besides on a cruise) and it's definitely my first time driving in a foreign country.
I looked into the International plan for my phone for the two weeks so I could possibly have that to use as a map and overall backup, but for one, it's really expensive and for two, you still have to pay extra for data usage. So I don't think I'll go that route. Our owner is giving us a cell phone to use and the house will have WIFI.
I hope this isn't a stupid question and perhaps someone before me has worried about this!
