Things to do in Roatan

  • Roatan looks a lot like the other Caribbean islands. After all, it’s got the trademark white-sand beaches, the coconut palms and the rainforest. The real action, though is under the waves, and that’s what sets it apart from the rest. The reef that rings the island hides shipwrecks, coral gardens and all manner of sea creatures – everything from turtles to dolphins swim in the depths.

  • You can get to know the island’s native butterfly population at the Roatan Butterfly Farm. There are hundreds of the winged creatures here, along with a rainbow-coloured mix of tropical birds.
  • Bailey’s Key is a private lagoon that a family of Bottlenose dolphins call home. Here, you can swim with the animals, learn about their habits, and even get a special dolphin kiss.
  • If you’ve got some energy to burn, try ziplining. You’ll get a bird’s-eye view of the jungle canopy, not to mention an adrenaline rush.
