Many visitors come to Roatan for its famous dive spots, but when you eventually come up for air you will discover a host of other reasons to fall in love with one of Honduras' best destinations. Canopy tours, snorkeling in marine reserves, and night diving facilities make Roatan vacations extremely appealing for outdoor adventurers, especially when you can get there on the cheap with all inclusive package deals. Coxen Hole, the island's largest city, is where you can enjoy a delightful meal of the day's catch flavoured with coconut and locally grown vegetables, while those interested in the island's natural environment will enjoy visits to its iguana farms, butterfly conservatories, and botanical gardens.
The fact that the country has changed hands between the Spanish, British, and Americans makes Roatan's indigenous Garifuna people and their culture even more special. Now concentrated in Punta Gorda area of the island, their village complexes remain largely unchanged since the 1700s, and this is one of the few places where visitors can interact closely with them.
With its wide range of accommodation and vacation activities catering to every travel style, Roatan attracts visitors on every budget so no matter what your travel tastes and preferences run to, you will find something to suit it here.
