Fun Info About the Bay Islands
Honduras has a group of beautiful islands that attract tons of travelers each year. The most popular ones are: Roatan, Utila, Guanaja. They are located on the Caribbean and are part of one of the world’s largest barrier reefs.
Before the Spaniards arrived to the Bay Islands they were inhabited by the Paya Indians and visited frequently by Mayan traders. In the 17th century, they became a refuge for British pirates. There was even a pirate stronghold on Roatán called Port Royal. According to a popular local legend the treasure from the Henry Morgan’s 1671 raid on Panama is buried somewhere on the island. You can meet tons of the Pirates families still living here (many generations forward).
They are now some of the main touristic attractions of the country because of their beauty and relaxed ambiance and great snorkeling and diving.
