Explore Pirates Birds and Monkeys in Honduras

Hang out with the monkeys in Honduras

I enjoyed a free Caribbean cruise with Carnival in exchange for sharing my experience. All thoughts and opinions remain my own, and the excursions we chose to join, like Pirates Birds and Monkeys on Isla Roatan, we paid for ourselves. In Honduras, it can be a challenge to decide what to do when you leave the […]
