The majority of Honduras’s tourists come from the US, flying into the small, efficiently run airports (toilets are spotlessly clean, as they are in the main petrol stations) in San Pedro Sula, La Ceiba and the capital, Tegucigalpa (pronounced Teg-goosie-galpa). Honduras has an excellent internal flight network, and it was an easy 30min/55km hop out to Roatán, the biggest of the three Bay Islands.
The Bay Islands have an interesting history: although Honduras was part of the Spanish empire, the Bay Islands were mostly ruled by the British (from 1643 to 1872). They were also home to the original pirates of the Caribbean, with as as many as 5,000 aquatic outlaws living on Roatán in the mid-17th century. Nowadays the major attraction is diving. The islands are on a fringing reef system, meaning the coral extends from the shoreline, so you can snorkel to it in minutes. And diving is cheap: you can get Padi-qualified from as little as £200.
