Facts About Bay Islands, Central America

Time Zone: America/Tegucigalpa

Latitude: 16.3333333

Longitude: -86.5

The Bay Islands of Honduras are the peaks of the Bonacca Mountain range, and part of the second largest coral reef structure in the world. Made up of three main islands (Utila, Roatán, and Guanaja) and over 60 smaller cays, the islands are located off the north coast of Honduras in the western Caribbean.

In pre-Columbian times, native Paya islanders inhabited the Bay Islands. The islands then passed hands from Spain to England to Honduras, and even included plenty of pirate residents during the 16th and 17th centuries. Modern-day residents consider themselves islanders first and English is the main language spoken.
