Roatan Named in Top 10 Central American Beach List

Marbella Beach

Central America has always attracted intrepid visitors in search of unfiltered natural beauty. Now, a set of top-tier, and often eco-friendly resorts are  reinventing the region as a world-class beach destination, complete with unspoiled coastlines, coral reefs, and corduroy waves.

Roatán listed as number seven, is just north of mainland Honduras in the Caribbean sea and the largest of the Bay Island chain. It  is surrounded by more than 60 miles of living reef and is one of the most affordable places worldwide to learn scuba. Open-water certification courses last three to four days, after which divers can troll for rare whale sharks. Non-divers can swim with sea turtles or explore the island’s west-end, which has some of our favorite Central America beaches.

The best time to visit is February through June. Solitude seekers may want to avoid the holiday season from Christmas through January.
Continental and Delta airlines fly direct to Roatán from Houston, Newark and Atlanta. West Jet airline also flies direct seasonally from Toronto.
