  • Take a walk on the wild side in Roatan, Honduras

    2011-12-29

    There is a travel gem hidden on the shores of Honduras that adventurous baby boomers may wish to visit on their next getaway. 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. From there, guests may catch a gorgeous panoramic view of the islands and beautiful blue ocean. The flora and fauna in this nature reserve is fantastic as well, boasting species like orchids, fruit trees and spice plants.

    To get up close and personal with some scaly creatures, Arch's Iguana Farm should be the next stop on a traveler's itinerary in Roatan. This facility is home to more than 3,000 iguanas, many of which roam free through the trees and along the pond that is also where some sea turtles and conches live.
