The Bay Islands are located near the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System, the second largest reef in the world. This has made activities like scuba diving and snorkeling a main tourist draw to the islands.
Guanaja is the least developed of the three islands and the least visited so diving here is a very personal experience. Dive sites here feature a series of pinnacles, vertical walls, lava tunnels and shipwrecks. Guanaja is located right at the edge of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System and this attracts pelagic marine life to the area.
Guanaja is known for more pelagic marine life and you might find more sharks and sea turtles in this area. Dive sites closer to the island feature critters like nudibranch, crustaceans and seahorses.
Besides admiring the sunset and soaking in the natural Caribbean beauty of the region, there are several waterfalls to explore and bird watching activities.
Fly to the Juan Manuel Gálvez Roatán International Airport on Roatán on airlines like United Airlines, American Airlines, Avianca Honduras, Avianca Guatemala and others. There are ferry services to reach the other islands and there are also flights to Útila and Guanaja.
