Our Roatan Collection Mangrove Tour offers you an opportunity to admire the pure beauty of Roatan’s diverse ecosystems. It is an adventure ideal for couples and families. A short drive to the East End of Roatan is where you will find the mind-blowing mangrove tunnels of Roatan.
The mangrove tunnel is also known as the “Little Venice” of Roatan. It is a network of protected mangroves that play a significant role in fighting climate change by eliminating carbon dioxide and protecting the coastline from storms. As a group, the mangrove trees thrive in seawater, specifically near the water’s edge.
The mangroves connect and intertwine, providing homes to animals that survive in roots or near the root connections. Moreover, these trees serve as a nursery area for sea creatures, protecting them while they grow, which increases their survival chances in the open sea.
The Beauty of Mangroves
Mangroves thrive in inhospitable areas, like subtropical and tropical environments around the world. Their roots can handle high tides as well as the saltiness of seawater. Their unique root systems serve as shelter for aquatic organisms, such as fish and shrimp. During our Mangrove tour, you will see life thriving with the help of these trees.
Mangroves also reduce pollutants that harm the land and ocean, affecting both the Roatan people and wildlife. You can breathe some fresh air and feel the cool breeze while going through these mangrove tunnels. Furthermore, mangroves also prevent flooding during storms and reduce wind and wave damage to Roatan.
A story that has been handed down from one generation to another is that the Roatan mangrove tunnels were once used by local pirates and raiding parties to hide while waiting for passing boats to attack and raid.
