The modern history of Roatan includes multiple naval skirmishes, conquests, invasions and migrations removed during the continuous wars between the Spanish Empire and the British; without forgetting the arrival of the Garifuna ethnic group, in 1797, a Central American territory. His most romantic chapter is the time filibusters as Henry Morgan made here stays a favorite Caribbean.

Roatan is the best of the Caribbean focused on a paradise where summer never ends. The wonderful coral reef, crystal clear and warm waters in blue tones; white beaches and mountainous topography, attracted the first waves of tourists since 1960, and have become the Honduran island in a sun and beach destination visited by thousands of people every year; many of them descended from the Titanic international cruise ships that arrive weekly during peak season.

Movie stars, celebrities, backpackers or simply tourists, tour the island that offers accommodations ranging from basic hostels, to luxurious and private resorts.

Here you can become a professional diver in the various certified diving schools, which are in different places on the island. Swimming in the more than 120 points made for underwater exploration, it is the most favorite activity. In addition, you enjoy diving in the world’s second largest coral reef. This paradise can boast of being one of the few havens of tropical waters where you can dive off reef sharks, for a small sum of money. It’s an experience you can not miss!

English is the most widespread language in Roatan as a result of the initial British occupation. Thanks to the abundant English-speaking community living in Roatan, the dollar has the largest circulation of the lempira; most goods and services are sold in dollars, but may pay lempiras if desired.
