Ibagari, A Diver’s Paradise

Have you ever wanted to go scuba diving? Submerging yourself under the water is really like stepping onto a different world. You will hear people say this all the time, but it will never quite click until you give diving a chance. Then it all makes sense. And that is exactly how it feels, like a peaceful, serene planet.

While getting an opportunity to visit this strange planet may seem like a distant dream, Ibagari Boutique Hotel and Duna Divers (their diving facility) make this dream a reality for those vacationing in Roatan, Honduras. In fact, many divers refer to Ibagari and Duna Divers as one of the top diving destinations in Roatan. And how could it not be when you can dive down to see the second largest coral reef in the world? Second only to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, the Belize Barrier Reef is a 190-mile-long section of reef that spreads out along Belize, the Yucatan, and Honduras. So, there are roughly 75 dive spots of shallow reefs and shipwrecks within a 30-minute distance from Ibagari Boutique Hotel and Duna Divers (and close to 200 dive sites around the island of Roatan). Talk about a perfect place to go scuba diving!

Duna Divers teaches “Discover Scuba Diving” (for those who want to try it out but don’t have the time to be certified), open water courses to become a certified diver, advanced diving courses, a rescue course, and a dive master course. For those who don’t like being under the water too deep, snorkeling is another great option offered at the Ibagari Boutique Hotel.

If you are new to diving and don’t have your own, you can also rent all of the equipment you could need from them from wet suits to BCDs to dive computers. Though, if you are a regular diver, it’s encouraged that you have your own dive computer to keep track of your dive history. See the best dive computer options here

While I was at Ibagari Boutique Hotel, I wasn’t expecting to go diving. Once I met and talked with their dive master Francheska, she made me feel comfortable enough to try Discover Scuba Diving with her. And I was so glad that I did! I found a passion for diving that I never knew I had.

While diving is what Ibagari Boutique Hotel is known for, that doesn’t mean they don’t offer many other fantastic activities. The property offers a nice sunset yoga course where you can relax and connect to your breath as the sun sets on the ocean before you. After you arise from final savasana, you will find the sun has set and the lights in the trees all around you are glistening.

Ibagari Boutique Hotel also offers a painting class where you can dip and sip in the afternoon before the sun sets. This is a perfect experience to enhance the artistic nature of the resort.

Massages can be called to your room currently, and soon you will be able to get them in the new spa building that is being built on site. And what a great environment it is to unwind in!

The Sunset Cruise

You can also encounter dolphins, give flyboarding a try, or go parasailing. A sunset cruise is also a great way to relax, try some champagne with a variety of delicious snacks, and watch the sun go down. If you’re looking to go on an adventure offsite, the resort will be happy to hook you up. They can give you a water taxi to and from the West Bay or the West End. There are also Mangrove Tours, Iguana Farms, Buggy Tours, Canopy Experiences, and more at your fingertips on Roatan, and the Ibagari will be happy to provide you with the tools to have the vacation of your dreams.

And you can’t forget to just relax in the pool or on the beach. Why not take advantage of the tropical environment and just relax? This is another great activity to do on your vacation at Ibagari Boutique Hotel.
