The island of Roatán is the largest of the archipelago of the Bay Islands, and is part of the Mesoamerican Reef Barrier. The island, 45 kilometers long, is geographically formed by hills covered with lush vegetation, and is located 30 miles from the Honduran coast. Its natural wealth and rich history with the presence of the Mayas and Payas, the Spanish and English occupation, and piracy during and after the colony, has generated the development of the island to make it one of the most visited tourist places in Honduras, and pride of our country to be recognized as one of the world’s tourist destinations.
In Roatán there is something for everyone. While it is true that the beauty and charm of the island is not only in its surface, its greatest potential is in the number of coral banks or diving sites able to satisfy any taste with the most complete standards in each of the services that are offered to visitors. The island also offers from bohemian areas to hotel areas with the “all-inclusive” system, as well as restaurants, bars and nightclubs for those who seek entertainment and nightlife.
The “Black Pearl,” an 18-hole golf course, designed by the renowned Pete Dye, is without a doubt, a unique experience for golf lovers. If your predilection is the beach and sun, in Roatán you will find white sand beaches, and turquoise waters to spend relaxing evenings. If what you are looking for is to add some more emotion, you can practice canopy, snorkeling, diving, and parasailing, among others.
