Photographer's Note

In continuation of my Bay Islands series, here is a shot I took from a boat as we filled up at the "gas station." These men have just finished filling up their boat, and are on their way to the main island. Boats are the primary means of transportation in Guanaja, as most of its population is scattered across the numerous stilt houses and key islands.

Guanaja is the easternmost of the three Islas de la Bahia (Bay Islands), followed by Roatan and Utila. Most of Guanaja's population is concentrated on a little key island less than half a square mile in area. Around 5000 people are packed onto this little island called Bonaca, because the sand flies on the main island were such a nuisance that most people live over the water or on small islands to keep away from these pests.
