Roatan is surrounded by numerous smaller islands, various cayes, and the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System. This system is the second-largest barrier reef system on the planet and the largest one in the Western Hemisphere. The Roatan landscape features blue skies, even bluer waters, and beautiful, sun-drenched beaches. Nature lovers relish all of these local offerings, while outdoor enthusiasts enjoy swimming, Roatan diving and snorkeling, horseback riding, Rotan golf, and fishing.
Some of the sights you will not want to miss include:
