Roatan

Roatan was once a famous stronghold for the pirates who plied the West Indies in search of Spanish galleons laden with gold and silver. An abundant supply of food and fresh water, together with the island's numerous hidden coves and inlets, provided the buccaneers with the perfect hideout.

Today, however, when you fly into Roatan, all that awaits you are turquoise waters, white sand beaches, and a mountain backdrop. Present day islanders, who are the friendly descendants of the pirates, runaway slaves, colonists, and native Indians, speak a lilting Caribbean English. And indeed, refer to themselves as English.

Long known as a diver's paradise, Roatan remains off the beaten track, and the laid back, tropical ambiance make for an idyllic vacation. A wide range of facilities accommodate varying budgets, and diverse attractions appeal to travelers of all ages....read more about Roatan »
