Dive Mecca Roatan

The Caribbean island of Roatan is Central America’s eco-hotspot and the dive Mecca of Honduras. On the country’s mainland, you can marvel at the roatan-honduras-beach-770stunning ancient ruins of Copan, also referred to as the “Paris of the Mayas” due to its impressive and still intact fascinating works of art.

Just off Honduras’ mainland you can find the famous Bay Islands that have reefs that house all possible species of marine life that the Caribbean offers. The Bay Islands consist of three islands, Guanaja, Utila (a world-famous whale shark hotspot), and the largest of the three, Roatan.

At the Roatan Institute for Marine Science you have the chance to dive with dolphins. Here we take a look at some of the best places to stay on Roatan.
