  • Palm-studded Caribbean beach bliss

    Gear down into island time in one of our favorite Caribbean escapes – the island of Roatán. Ease yourself into barefoot luxury on Roatán’s east end in a treehouse hideaway on an active jam farm near the Garifuna village of Punta Gorda. Here, you’ll spend a few days with your toes in the sand. Then, head for the western end of the island to split your remaining time between two beautiful beachfront resorts. You’ll set sail for the blissful tropical uninhabited Cayos Cochinos islands, to explore the incredible reefs and crystal clear waters that this little pocket of the world is known for, and indulge in some well-deserved R&R and a heavy dose of romance. Trust us, this beach getaway is one you won't soon forget.

    • Day 1: Punta Gorda, Roatán - Arrival

      When you touch down in Coxen Hole, you’ll be met by your driver and whisked away east on a scenic one-hour drive along Roatán's coastline to the quiet Garifuna village of Punta Gorda. Check into your spacious, treehouse suite at Marble Hill Farms for the evening and enjoy some well-deserved R&R after your travel day.

    • Day 2: Punta Gorda - Powdery palm-studded Camp Bay Beach

      Today, experience what Robinson Crusoe may have felt like as you explore the longest virgin beach on the island – over 2 kilometers of white coral sand and turquoise water – Camp Bay Beach. Far from the crowded west end beaches, you could spend a whole day here without seeing another soul. Spend a day splashing in the azure surf, wandering the beach, catching some rays, and enjoy a tasty local lunch at the famous La Sirena de Camp Bay overwater restaurant before returning to Marble Hill for the night.

    • Day 3: Punta Gorda - Couples' massage & candlelit dinner overlooking the ocean

      Spend the day at leisure today – paddle board or kayak, play in the surf, or take a tour of the gardens and learn about the farm’s sustainable practices, followed by a tasting of Marble Hill’s most beloved jams and jellies – hibiscus, mutton pepper, mango, guava and more. In the afternoon, return to your suite for a luxurious in-room couples’ massage, followed by a romantic ocean-view dinner for two.

    • Day 4: Punta Gorda to Sandy Bay, Roatán - Explore island shores by kayak

      After breakfast, transfer to the beautiful Puerta Azul Hotel in Sandy Bay on the island’s west coast, where your oceanfront bungalow awaits. Check in, and spend your day relaxing, recharging, and reconnecting with one another. If you’re craving a little more excitement, make your way to West End Village, a mini-metropolis full of bars, restaurants, lounges, scuba operators and souvenir shops. The town also boasts Half Moon Bay, a perfectly crescent-shaped palm-studded beach well worth a visit. As night falls, the village becomes a flurry of activity, with many bars and eateries offering happy hours and live music.

    • Day 5: Sandy Bay - Set sail for the beautiful, deserted archipelago of Cayos Cochinos; stop to snorkel the reef along the way, and discover a world of wonder beneath the waves

      Today, you’ll have the opportunity to experience a picturesque, yet little-known archipelago off the coast of Honduras. Discover colorful reefs at two unique snorkeling spots along the way and indulge in a delicious lunch of barbeque chicken, grilled fish, pineapple salsa and an array of mouthwatering sides. Drift past remote private islands and Chachauate, the only inhabited cay in the archipelago, home to a small indigenous Garifuna village. Find your spot and settle in to watch the sun dip low in the sky, signaling another perfect day in paradise.

    • Day 6: Sandy Bay - After dark deep sea treasures on a night snorkeling adventure

      After a relaxing day of white sand and turquoise seas, tonight you’ll experience the ocean like you’ve never seen it before! If you love snorkeling, this adventure can’t be missed. Don a mark and some fins and dive in. You’ll use a dive light to see a whole different side of the reef, when nocturnal creatures come out to play – fish, octopus, seahorses, shrimp, and much more. At the end of the snorkel adventure you’ll turn out all of the lights, and if you’re lucky, you’ll have the chance to see the island’s famous “String of Pearls” in the distance, an effect created by luminescent shrimp. Imagine tiny strings of light, each a small glowing beacon – like a star – floating in the sea.

    • Day 7: Sandy Bay to West Bay, Roatán - Retreat into luxury

      After breakfast, transfer to the exclusive upscale Ibagari Boutique Resort, located on a semi-private beach halfway between West Bay and West End. Check into your stunning ocean-view suite and get a taste of the sweet life with a champagne toast at sunset.

    • Day 8: West Bay - A parting glimpse

      After a relaxing final day at island speed, enjoy a private candlelit dinner with an ocean view at Ibagari’s deliciously upscale Luna Muna Restaurant, where you’ll enjoy classic flavors, tasty tropical cocktails and a farm and sea-to-table menu that features fresh ingredients chosen daily.

    • Day 9: West Bay - Departure

      After a final walk down the beach, transfer to Roatán’s international airport to begin your journey home.
