Safety/Security/EmergencyEdit

VHF RadioEdit

  • El Bight VHF 72
  • Josh's Key VHF 72
  • Josh's Key VHF 06 (Graham's Place)

There didn't seem to be a consistent VHF channel when we were in Guanaja, but Graham on Josh's Cay swore that 06 was the local channel. We hung out on 06 for awhile, and never heard another call. Most locals are using cell phones now. Channel 72 is a good bet, since people coming from Roatan tend to still be on 72.--SoggyPaws 17:47, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

Internet AccessEdit

There are 2 internet cafes on Bonnaca:

Baytech Cyber Cafe and Internet Now, both charge 30 LPS per hour, but space is limited.

Graham's key offers Wifi, for $10/day or $2/hour, but availability was limited to when customers were staying on the island. We found the service was not available when only cruising boats were anchored off the key.

We did not find any Wifi or internet on the North shore by Michael's Rock.

April 2010 Guanaja Island Club (no sign, but 1st dock east of the rock) has FREE and FAST wiff and they welcome cruisers
