When Honduras hosted the World Tourism Organization’s Regional Commission for the Americas meeting a few weeks ago, they had great news to report. People from around the world are increasing travel to the country, both by flight and by cruise ship. In 2016, travel growth was up four percent compared to 2015, and spending was up by about US$10 million.
Last year over a million guests disembarked their 341 cruise ships in Roatán and other Honduran cruise ports, a 14.7 percent increase over 2015’s numbers. Numerous cruise lines with itineraries originating in Houston, Tampa, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, and New Orleans now include stops in the nation as part of their itineraries.
Roatán, the country’s most popular cruise port, has especially received a lot of media attention lately. West Bay Beach won the 2017 Traveler’s Choice Trip Advisor award for best beach in Central America and one of the 25 best beaches in the world. Frommer’s has highlighted Roatán in its Undiscovered Caribbean Islands: Insiders’ Guide, the HGTV show House Hunters International has featured it in several episodes, and Islands Magazine listed the island as one of its Best Islands to retire. Visitors head to the Bay Islands to snorkel, scuba dive, kayak, water ski, sail, and swim among exotic sea creatures.
