Roatan is part of the Bay Islands and features some incredible tropical landscapes and opportunities for underwater exploration that are ideal for those who love the outdoors and temperate climates.
If travelers want to experience a little bit of everything Roatan has to offer, they can head straight for the Gumbalimba Park. According to Frommer's, there is a wide variety of activities to choose from in this nature reserve, from gliding along zip lines to snorkeling in the colorful coral reefs.
Those who enjoy a hearty hike can journey to the Carambola Botanical Gardens for a climb to the summit of Mount Carambola.
