Roatan, Bay Islands

They could not have chosen a more appropriate name for Roatan, after all you basically get loads of sun year round on this tropical island in the Caribbean, making it the perfect place to work on that bronze tan to show off upon return from your travels! White sandy beaches with warm crystal clear water makes it even better for a day out at the beach. Diving is its main attraction and its magnificent coral reefs are just a spectacle for snorkelers and divers alike. Fact is, its coral reefs are part of the second largest reef formation in the world, next to the Great Barrier Reef of Australia, so there is no doubt diving here is of world class. In addition, you can also find other activities such as kayaking and wind surfing, exciting canopy tours on zip lines with great views, and even a submarine ride, too. There is also a bustling night life, with a nice selection of bars and restaurants for all tastes and budgets.

"No shoes, no shirt, no problem", basically reflects the laid back lifestyle found on this island. To sum it all up, it is just HEAVEN. Best part is that it is still relatively hidden and has eluded over development and massive tourism, so right now is the best time to visit this island and witness its original and natural splendor.
