Spending the day in Coney Island? Here's where to eat:

Nathan's Famous

Much to the consternation of ...

Many locals and ex-pats were horrified at the prospect of ...

Diving and Snorkeling the Barrier Reefs of Roatan

What soccer is to Europe and baseball is to the U.S., scuba diving is to Roatan.

Professional dive shops are as abundant as Starbucks in New York. Virtually every conversation circles back to that day's visibility or curious sightings.

Great Places to Eat on Roatan

With the influx of travellers has come an astounding array of restaurants, a dozen of which stretch along West Bay beach and a dozen more a short water taxi ride away in West End.

Menus throughout the island pay homage to mass tourism with typical North American fare, joined by fresh seafood or a traditional Honduran baleadas for as little as 20 Lempiras -- around $1 -- in places. If ...
