Main St, Coxen Hole, Honduras
We visited Roatan Honduras and went ziplining through the jungle with this tour! You climb these Mayan Temple like steps and then down you go through the jungle canopy on a zipline adventure. It wasn't just 1 ride either. There were 12 zips and 2...
Half Moon Bay, West End, Honduras
Most visitors to Roatan snorkel and sun themselves on the island's West Bay Beach, which can get pretty crowded (especially on cruise ships days). Get yourself some extra sand space by heading to the town of West End, just down the road and hang...
Sandy Bay, Honduras
Maya Key Island is a special place: a private island just off the island of Roatan, Honduras, it is privately owned and funded and serves as a sanctuary for rescued and donated animals that are local to Honduras, like the macaw and the jaguar....

Milton Bight, Honduras
There is nothing like waking up to the sound of a ship, cutting through the open waves below, and then opening up your balcony door and having room service breakfast in a bathrobe while overlooking the cerulean waters. I recently spent a week on...
Copán Department, Honduras
The hieroglyphic staircase at the ancient Maya site of Copan tells the story of the Copan dynasty in its entirety and is the longest inscribed Maya text ever discovered. I'm certain the sacrificial victims who were forced up these stairs to have...
Paseo Real, San Pedro Sula 21102, Honduras
Volunteering is a very rewarding way to see the world and feel like you are doing more than just entertaining yourself. My dentist friend asked me to go along to assist a medical/dental team that was going to work at El Refugio Children's Home in...
