The best time to visit Roatan is always now, but it’s never been truer than it is for 2016. That’s because Roatan is officially on the hot destination list!

By the end of 2015, our beautiful island had racked up plenty of credentials from the likes of CNN, Islands Magazine, TripAdvisor, and more. If you’re hoping to visit Roatan while it’s still quiet and untamed, you’d better hurry before too many tourists read all these great reviews and write-ups and book their own vacations to paradise.

This is just some of the buzz Roatan generated in 2015 with international press…

Roatan is one of very few places left in the Caribbean still boasting charming homes built on stilts over the water; Roatan residents are still celebrating local Garifuna culture with language, dance, and festivals; Roatan is still a lush, verdant island that looks almost untouched as you approach from air or sea.
