Roatan International Airport (RTB)

From shore to shore, Honduras is an adventure-lovers paradise, with lush rain forests, exotic ecosystems and picturesque offshore islands. Stretching 40 miles from end to end, Roatan is a one of Honduras’ most celebrated isles for its proximity to the world’s second-largest barrier reef. Stroll the beautiful Esmeralda Beach, dive with whale sharks, or visit a slew of natural gardens and parks, including Mandy’s Eel Garden and the Hanging Bridge at Gumbalimba Park. 

Dive & Thrive In Roatan

The wonders of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef await sea-loving visitors of Roatan. The island boasts 130 dive sites around coral reefs, canyons, towering undersea walls, age-old wrecks and tunnels, with water visibility up to an astonishing 100 feet most of the year. Watch seahorses, queen angelfish, stoplight parrotfish, blue tangs and fairy basslets swim in their natural habitats. The calm, clear, turquoise shore is also great for snorkeling, thanks to the shallow waters off the beaches.

Perfect for true nature enthusiasts, Gumbalimba Park features a trail that runs through very dense jungle foliage. Discover the various exotic plants and animals that call it home, including cascading ferns, macaws and monkeys. Finish your trek with exhilarating activities around the rest of the park: row through waters in the clear-bottom kayaks, swim in the sparkling pool, venture through a small cave, or zip line above the trees.

For a more casual day, observe the natural beauty of the island from stretches of powdery, soft, white sand, as beach butlers scuttle back and forth with a bevy of cool tropical drinks. Patron one of the many waterside hangouts, many of which feature happy hours with live deejays or Caribbean bands. Dining is just as spirited, as restaurants around the island serve up nice helpings of traditional, regional, seafood delights alongside dramatic ocean views. Although shopping is limited, small stores on Main Street are perfect to scout for a hodgepodge of souvenirs.
