Roatan Island is one of the Bay Islands of Honduras. Fifty miles off the coast of Honduras in the Caribbean Sea, Roatan island is one of those hidden gems only recently discovered by vacationers looking for crystal clear waters and white sandy beaches.
For decades, Roatan has been a mecca for divers around the world. Roatan boasts one of the last pristine coral reefs on the planet -- part of the largest coral reef system in the hemisphere, second only to the Great Barrier Reef of Australia.
Roatan hotels and resorts cater not only to divers, but to travellers of all sorts making Roatan a haven for those seeking a tropical paradise away from the hustle and bustle of other popular Caribbean vacation destinations like the Bahamas or the Caymans. Roatan island is fast becoming the preferred Caribbean island for retirees because of its laid back lifestyle and competitive real estate prices. People from around the world have made Roatan their home, and our little community is full of character(s). ;-)
