Caribbean Vacation Part 4: Favorite Port

I wouldn't have thought that my favorite port on our trip would have been Roatan, Honduras, I would have thought it was somewhere we went diving, but ziplining through the jungle, snorkeling at a reef, and relaxing on the beach made Roatan my favorite port. (Honestly probably because it was within walking distance of a beach! The other ports didn't have a beach.)

I wasn't nervous about ziplining until we were about to start. Then I was nervous! But I went through with it and it was pretty cool!

The zipline took us right down to the beach when we were done and we rented snorkeling equipment there. See my post on snorkeling here! We snorkeled until we were too tired to keep on going and then went to the beach to relax for a while. We got chairs right on the water and lay in the sun for a bit. It was a fantastic and relaxing day. 

It was such a cool vacation and I'm glad we did it, but I'm also excited for some of our upcoming vacations that will be far less relaxing but way more adventurous! 

What do you have coming up that you're excited about?

Caribbean Vacation Part 2: Snorkeling

On our recent Caribbean cruise, we didn't want to spend all four port days diving. We did end up renting equipment one of the days though to snorkel, and it was so much fun! Apparently, the diving in Honduras is amazing, as it is in many places down in the Caribbean, but the snorkeling was cool too!

One thing we did learn after snorkeling is that sunscreen kills reefs. The reef we were at was about 90% dead because of the tourists' sunscreen. (Ours included!) But you can buy reef safe sunscreen. Next time I go swimming, snorkeling, or diving, I'm going to make sure I have environmentally friendly sunscreen!
