Wandering around West End at night, I kept looking at Rusty Fish and decided to go back to check it out during the day when it was open. The gentlemen who runs it, was so nice and he talked me through what they do. The majority of their art is from recycled metal and he also does mosaic artwork that... More

all of the goods for sale are made by local families with recycled goods. They are colorful, bright and well worth the price

I love the green and local supporting initiatives here! It's great to know your money stays in Roatan and some trash stays out of the landfill. I had fun picking out many fish to hang on a fence in my yard. Since buying multiple pieces, the artist negotiated a good price with me. I love seeing my new underwater scene... More

Best artwork from local artists that recycle tin! Beautiful pieces and very reasonable! I buy something every time I'm there! There are several shops on the island.

Shopping at Rusty Fish for artworks was like snorkeling off a magic reef in a cartoon! I loved it! So many bright fish and other sea creatures all hand made from local recycled materials. Ten stars to these environmentally conscious artists who give back to the local economy and to our planet. The shop keepers at this Coxen Hole Shop... More

Found excellent decorations here and were very reasonably priced. They have a few locations in the area and we visited 2 of them. Found awesome treasures and I am very happy to have supported the local economy. Would recommend spending some of your souvenir dollars here!

An interesting and different art shop that sells all sorts of things made from local recycled materials. As the sign out front says 'Nothing Made in China'! If you are wandering through West End, drop in and browse and buy! You'll have something unique and local to take home as a souvenir.

What a fun place! The items are made from recycled objects and supposedly made in Roatan. The employees are very friendly, and we made a purchase. I loved the sea glass jewelry. I would recommend this store.

We went during a Carnival excursion called "Top 10 Best of Roatan." If only more people knew about the motto of "reuse, reduce waste, recycle!" There were so many neat and beautiful things in this shop. It has decorative artwork, jewelry, and tons of stuff. If you're an a tour and going somewhere else, do not use the restroom that's...
