The food was good, the wildlife abundant and the snorkelling vibrant!
I had a wonderful time exploring the sea around the hotel and socializing with the friendly hotel staff!
While it was a package vacation, orchastrated by my parents, it was a lovely place to spend a week and get bronzed...
We visited some very unique sites: an Iguana farm/conservation area, where we were swarmed by hundreds of Iguanas; a national park full of beautiful flora and fauna; island lookouts and my favourite activity was snorkelling in the reefs off of the beach (I even managed to swim alongside a sea turtle for a bit!)
While I shall leave this entry short and sweet (as the photos will speak for themselves), Roatan has a lot to offer every traveller (even the lazy ones who want nothing more than to tan all day): there is plenty of nature to explore (forests, reefs, mountains), there is some development if one is interested in nightlife, but at the same time, the developments have not quite reached the level of other islands, so the islanders are friendlier in a more genuine way than I've encountered at other tourism hotspots...
