Roatán

Thirty miles off the coast of Central America, a long, jungle-covered ridge rises out of the Caribbean Sea and forms the backbone of Roatán, the largest and most visited of the Bay Islands of Honduras. Fluffy white-sand beaches, volcanic-rock coasts, mangrove forests, and dense rainforests are contained within the island’s shores, which are hugged by the world’s second-largest barrier reef.
