article: a beautiful and affordable caribbean isle

Flying in, you'll see an island that is about 40 miles long, 5 miles across at its widest point and vibrantly green. There are no high-rise hotels, because building regulations don't allow for them. Density restrictions within the beach zones have contained development in a good way. Cows and pigs still graze this lush, green island. Bananas and coconuts still grow wild. Despite the dramatic growth in its expat population, Roatán remains an untamed paradise and a Shangri-La for nature lovers. Honduras, with the help of its Ministry of Tourism, became the first country to adopt the concept of "geotourism" as its tourist agenda, going a step further than the popular "ecotourism" and meaning to suggest a very natural experience.
