Roatan, Honduras

The biggest of the Bay Islands, Roatan is home to one of the largest reef systems on the planet. Aquatic fun abounds, from scuba excursions among the labyrinths of Mary’s Place, the dive site that was shaped by volcanic activity centuries ago, to snorkeling adventures that explore old shipwrecks. Look out below on a glass-bottom boat cruise to see sharks, eels and other marine life, or soar above lush forests on a thrilling zipline course. Afterward, head to the beach at West Bay for swimming, sunbathing and rum-infused cocktails. This tropical paradise boasts exotic wildlife, which can be discovered on visits to a sloth sanctuary, iguana farm and preserves that feature toucans, parrots, monkeys and more. Take note of the 17th-century pirate fortifications on a tour through Coxen Hole, the island’s capital town, and marvel at the vibrantly painted, stilt-top houses in the fishing village of Oakridge while riding a water taxi.
