Where is Roatan?

These days nothing seems to top Google Maps when it comes to showing everyone where you are located. The island of Roatan is part of the Bay Islands, which is in an area referred to as the Western Caribbean. Close by you will find Belize and the Cayman Islands, and a bit further off is Jamaica, mon! All of which border the Caribbean Sea. Notice the marker, and zoom in or out to get a larger viewpoint of where we are in the world.
As you can see above, Roatan is also considered to be in the Americas. Located above South America and below North America, there is an area made up of five small countries, named Central America. The island is actually off the northern coast of the Central American country of Honduras.
