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....
On my recent trip to Honduras for a Global Medical Brigade, I captured this image of an incredibly captivating little girl waiting for her medication. Not only does the image captured the impoverished architecture with the rustic stone step and...
Carretera Principal, Sandy Bay 33166, Honduras
Tranquilseas Eco Lodge and Dive Center in Sandy Bay is a great place to relax. I love to snorkel and the coral reef is right in front of the lodge. The beach is quiet. The cabanas are set in a tropical garden. I really like the owners and the...
Col Satelite, La Ceiba, Honduras
Peaceful, serene getaway in the jungly mountains that border La Ceiba. Most people pass through this town en route to the Bay Islands but this hideaway is worth a night or two as is the rafting on the Rio Congrejal or the horseback riding. Oh, and...

Situated on the beautiful Half Moon Bay, this is the quintessential Roatan beach bar. As the name would indicate, this is a great place to be as the sun goes down. Live music on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday nights really rounds out the...
Punta Gorda, Honduras
The less developed eastern end of the island offers much more solitude. There is a great spot not too far past the public access beach in Camp Bay where you can get the best rum punch (offered up homemade in a glass mug with a slice of pineapple)...
Dixon Cove, Honduras
Snorkeling with a few small reef sharks is one thing, but...actually diving 60 feet underwater to swim with dozens of large Caribbean Reef sharks and watching them attack a feed bucket 15 feet in front of you is absolutely wild! These sharks don't...
This was a great way to get up close and personal with just a few of the exotic animals on the island of Roatan. Because we only had a few hours due to coming into port on Carnival Cruise lines, I found it easy and convenient to book online...
