Roatán, Islas De La Bahia

After a hot and humid summer in New York, I took a trip to a small island in the Caribbean off the coast of Honduras. The desire to get out of the city was at an all-time high. Known for its snorkeling, Roatan is an island I had never even heard of before my arrival. The island has all the makings of an American paradise; palm trees, white sand, beaches, and clearwater. However due to its lack of resorts and infrastructure, the island remains to be a lost paradise. A island that could be flourishing with tourism, is just on the cusp of being discovered.
