Roatan is an idyllic island just off the north coast of Honduras and is the most populated of the three main islands that make up the Bay Islands - although there are over 70 islands and cays in total. Long known to divers as one of the top dive destinations in the Caribbean, Roatan is now being discovered by vacationers looking for somewhere a little different, a little off the beaten track, yet with all the convenience of direct flights and all inclusive resorts.
Nolitours offer weekly non-stop flights to Roatan and feature six resorts which range from 3½ to 4 ½ star accommodation. As well as professional dive activities you will also find a variety of included features such as a kids’ clubs, beach and water sports, and restaurant choices. And, as you would expect for one of the world’s top diving destination, non-divers can also enjoy fabulous snorkeling.
At nearly 50 km long, less than 8 km wide at its widest point - and reaching elevations of 244 m (800 ft) - visitors to Roatan will experience everything from flat sandy beaches, rocky, volcanic rock shores, mangrove forests, lush valleys and steep rainforest-covered hilltops.
The beaches on Roatan are classic curves of white sand adjacent to turquoise warm waters, with the second largest barrier reef in the world just offshore. Roatan's barrier reef, sea grass beds and mangroves house the island’s complex marine ecosystem. The Sandy Bay-West End Marine Reserve is a protected area where you will find many of Roatan’s exceptional dive sites.
Divers may see dolphins and sharks, sea turtles and moray eels, and these waters are one of the best places in the world to see whale sharks especially between May and September. Caves, 1000-foot coral walls and spectacular sea sponges await those who venture under water.
Nolitours offer a full range of excursions to explore this unspoiled destination offering water based fun, cultural experiences, nightlife and adventure. For example there’s a full day eco tour of Roatan island including visits to small local markets. You can zip line through the canopy of the tropical forest, take a catamaran trip with snorkeling to see the incomparable marine life or go swimming with Dolphins.
Nolitours offer vacations with a difference – their unique noliDUO packages allow you to visit two completely different destinations in one vacation. You can add a dash of culture and history to your beach getaway and combine the beauty of the tropical oasis of the Island of Roatan with the splendor of the ancient Mayan ruins at Copan on the mainland. These are the most important Mayan ruins in Honduras and the perfect complement to the rest and recreation of Roatan’s beaches.
Nolitours offers direct flights to Roatan and a wide choice of all inclusive accommodation on the island. Here are just three of the excellent resort choices available with Nolitours. One is a quiet, typically Caribbean resort on a private island. One is a family friendly resort with great facilities. And one is a more luxurious property with a spa that is more adults oriented.
