Rio de Janeiro ActivitiesA ferry boat or a 20 minute flight from here takes you to the turquoise waters of the Bay Islands, Utila, Roatan and Guanaja.

The Bay Islands. Roatan, Guanaja and Utila make up the Bay Islands that are located on the largest barrier reef in the Northern Hemisphere and extend from 20 to 40 miles off the coast of Honduras.

The Islands have a heritage and flavor all their own because they were settled originally by descendants of British privateers. English is so widely spoken on the Islands that many people don't speak Spanish at all. They are home to a flourishing lobster and shrimp fishing industry. Palm trees fringe the turquoise blue and crystal clear waters renowned for the scuba diving and leisure resorts.

The Bay Islands are where you can discover an entire world for yourself, whether it be fishing, diving, snorkeling, exploring nature trails and exotic plants or simply relaxing on the beach.
