Roatan island style website featuring articles and stories of adventure, yarns and photography, this is how we invite you to experience the island. Roatan readers grasp a sense of what it means to escape to pristine beaches, coral reefs and participate in the islands culture.
Real beach weddings start with powdery soft white sand under your feet, the sparkle of the sun setting on the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, palm trees swaying and the anticipation of the romantic moment.
Families from just about everywhere were welcomed and given tours of the Resort and the Roatan Institute for Marine Sciences. Ages were divided and counselors assigned.
Artist Chapdelaine: Paul Chapdelaine is a well know artist in Tela and Roatan. But, I did not know that, until I walked by what I thought was a street painter (you know, like the kind you see in parks and boulevards in the big cities) and met the man.
“Between the inner and outer beaches,
a strand of woods thrived: palms, palmettos, mahogany, figs, and calabash.
Coconut palms and fig trees dropped enough fruit to feed the wildlife that swooped by in droves.
It was so easy to catch a fish with your bare hands,
Tristan and I had made a game of it during our weeks of lovemaking on the warm, supple sand.
It truly was paradise.”
