Palm-fringed, white-sand beaches stretch for 40 miles (64 kilometers) along the coast of Roatan, the largest of the Bay Islands. Roatan is located 30 miles (48 kilometers) off the coast of Honduras and is surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. The island’s economy is based primarily on tourism and Roatan is dotted with small towns, resorts and gated communities. The Bay Islands are located along part of the world’s second-largest barrier reef system and Roatan is one of the top scuba diving destinations in the Caribbean.
Roatan’s cruise port is located on the south side of the island just outside Coxen Hole, the capital and largest city on the Bay Islands. You’ll find a variety of shopping and dining options within the cruise port complex, although there aren’t many attractions for visitors in Coxen Hole. Taxis and minibuses wait just outside the cruise port to shuttle visitors into town and around the island.
The wilds of Roatan are as diverse as they are romantic. From beautiful beach vistas to dense jungles teaming with macaws and monkeys, Roatan is indeed a special place. And while the time seems to just slip away on the white sand beaches, there’s little more intoxicating than seeing the natural jungles that make Roatan the beautiful nature preserve it is.
The Roatan Butterfly Garden is this serene escape. Full of wildlife, the Roatan Butterfly Garden is home to boa constrictors, parrots, lush tropical plants and, of course, the beautiful butterfly. Let the tame deer lick your hand, feed some toucans, and have your guide show you around the grounds as you’ll get an experience here like no other.
