Roatan is filled with people doing good all year long.

After nearly a month of competitions and fundraisers, the 8th Annual Golden Buoy Dive Shop Olympics is coming up to its final event. This Saturday, June 6th, head over to Bananarama in West Bay to witness – or participate in – the most grueling evening of activities yet. The Dive Shop Olympics culminate in a pentathlon of events to push each dive shop to their physical and emotional limits. (Guys, that’s a joke. There’s nothing physically grueling here, just some good old fashioned fun!)

What is “Semana Santa” anyway?

No, friends, it has nothing to do with Santa Claus. In most of Latin America, the end of Holy Week, or Easter Week, is a festival time. Most countries offer national holidays for at least Good Friday, if not other days as well. Most schools are closed and families take advantage of the opportunity to celebrate together.
