Honduras. Roatan Island

Recently, I was reading about crime rates in different countries. It turned out that a short time ago, I had visited (without even knowing) the most crime-ridden country in the world . . . 

Honduras

.
Good thing that I did not know it during my visit because can you imagine how scared I would have been the entire trip?

We did not notice anything dangerous in Honduras. The reason being, probably, that we visited a tourist island.
We arrived at the island called 

Roatan

. A T-shirt with the text "Where the hell Roatan is?" was one of the most popular souvenirs there.
However, there were also good diving sites, and cruise ships continuously anchored there as well . . .

4roatanisland-honduras.jpgWe arrived at the island in a couple of hours before the official time of debarkation, so we admired the island for a while from a distance.
After, we took a taxi and drove around the island. Our first stop was at an observation deck.

Besides that, we also went to see the works of local craftsmen.

Actually, there were no special sights on the island. So we decided to go to the local botanical garden, which was one of many there.

Roatan

.
But if you wish, you can simply go to the beaches, which are plenty there!
