Located off the north coast of Honduras and ringed by the second largest barrier reef in the world, the exotic island of Roatán boasts crystalline waters framed by a mountainous backdrop, an extraordinary flora and fauna, and every sport and activity under the sun, all this and more on a stunning stretch of land just 65 km long. It’s the perfect place for divers, snorkellers, sports enthusiasts, nature lovers and laid-back travellers who enjoy a mix of relaxation and adventure with a twist.
Rain or shine, it’s party time! Basecampers Emily, Rodrigo and Zain decide to turn a gloomy day into an adrenaline-charged adventure high up in the trees. What better place for zip lining than the Mayan Eden Eco-Park! After a scenic hike up the mountain, they strap on their harnesses for some upside-down zip lining in the rain.
Watch the video below for a glimpse of their action-packed day, and listen to the Basecampers talk about the meaning of travelling and the importance of protecting the environment.
For those sunnier days, how about taking a swing at Roatán’s only golf course? Designed by the legendary Pete Dye, The Black Pearl is an 18-hole, par-72, eco-friendly masterpiece delivering an unparalleled experience on the green for beginners and professionals alike, not to mention an idyllic setting and a refreshing ocean breeze.
