Zip Lining through the Honduran Jungles of Roatán

Travel Basecamp By Travel Basecamp

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.
