      About this trip

      The moment you step onto the porch of your overwater bungalow and gaze off into the blue sea flanked by green hills of palms, you will understand why nature-seekers come to Roatan to get away from it all. 

       

      Our home for the week is Anthony's Key Resort. An all-inclusive dive resort with pool, spa, full bar, and more. Don't let the word "resort" fool you. Here, there are no high rises with floors of cold, cookie cutter hotel rooms. Instead, there is village of wooden bungalows cocooned in lush palms with adventure right outside your door. 

       

      Below the waterline, the resort is hugged by the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System, the largest barrier reef in the northern hemisphere. From the time you plunge into the warm life-filled salty sea, you will wish you had gills to stay forever.  It’s home to thick, vibrant coral, playful dolphins, and varied marine life. Those who want to see the ocean at night, can take a guided night snorkel in search of nocturnal creatures like octopuses!


      The reef system here is fabulous for both snorkelers and divers on the same boat. Snorkelers can float over the shallow reef while divers can descend deeper along the reef wall.

       

      Near the key is a place where participants will spend a few hours interacting with the resident dolphins including a free swim with the pod! You will be surrounded by dolphins that choose how they interact with you. You will feel their chirps and clicks vibrating through the water, and hear the buzzing sounds they make as they talk to each other! 

       

      Topside, island tours will get you off property and introduce you to some of the local culture and sites like seaside towns and Maya Key. There will visits to two different animal sanctuaries will you will meet sloths and monkeys. A exciting adventure will be a thrilling zip line through the rainforest tree tops.

       

      This fun-filled week also has time for rest and relaxation during your free time. Swing in a hammock on your oceanfront deck, and feel the sea breezes. Enjoy the use of paddle boards and kayaks. Visit the spa for a massage. 

       

      This trip is open to women of all ages 18 years or older. Participants must know how to swim.

      I'm gladly giving this trip five stars. Landing in San Jose very late due to travel delays was not fun, but our tour guide Kelly met us at the hotel to give us the next days itinerary and advised us how to dress and pack. Very much appreciated. Going forward, each day was jam packed with interesting activities and our naturalist/guide Pepé was exceptional giving us wonderful information about the animals, plants and surroundings. Off-the-beaten path is a truly apt description of this trip. We explored wonderful areas of Costa Rica that an average tourist wouldn't even know existed. I can't finish my review without commenting on the wonderful women that were on this trip. Each and everyone of them brought something special to each day. And another shout out to Kelly, our group leader and Pepé our naturalist. They helped make this wonderful experience something so very special.

      Great trip! Kelly was the best leader and took care of issues and made the group more interesting and fun. Erick the naturalist lead was amazing with his photography, knowledge of flora and fauna along with natural history of the region. On top of being a very nice guy. The other women helped to make the trip. We absolutely enjoyed each and every one. La Leona was my favorite place. It is beautiful and rustic in the most perfect way. The night hike is not to be missed! Snakes and ant eaters to enjoy. I would definitely book this trip.

      This trip was spectacular. I found adventure and serenity. How can you explain to anyone a trip to Iceland with Green Edventures?? From the trip leader, to the local guide, to the food and the activities... it's something you must experience for yourself.
      By Laura H for Iceland 2023: Women's Fire, Ice, Northern Lights on Nov 20, 2023
      Thank you for all the hard work our guides put into this amazing trip! Iceland is certainly the land of fire and ice! Made many new friends!
      By Winnie G for Iceland 2023: Women's Fire, Ice, Northern Lights on Nov 20, 2023
      Once again Green Edventures does not disappoint! With trip lead Kelly and Iceland Guide Inga leading the way we were treated to spectacular views, ice adventures, geothermal relaxation, delicious food, and an overall amazing adventure. They truly went above and beyond to make sure we saw and did as much as possible with the flexibility to adjust adventures as needed. I can not recommend Green Edventures highly enough, everyone should experience the many once in a lifetime trips available!

      I went on an amazing trip with Tara to Baja, Mexico in 2020. This was a dream trip for me being a wildlife lover. It was incredible to be able to swim with whale sharks and sea lions and get up close with gray whales. Camping on the beach was amazing. We had a great group of women and everyone vibed well and all of the tour guides including Tara, Alex and Chabello were so fun, friendly and helpful every step of the way. The food was great at the campsite and at the restaurants we got to try. When our trip plans initially got derailed waiting on a negative Covid test and we had to get a different flight, Tara did everything in her power to accommodate us and make sure we got to enjoy every part of the trip, including setting us up with another whale shark swimming tour after we had missed the initial one with the group, and she spent time waiting for us to finish before leaving for the airport. I definitely recommend Green Edventures, especially the Baja Mexico trip!

      I just returned from the Wisconsin Women's Tour and couldn't have asked for a better trip! For me, the amount and type of activity were perfect. Who know there was so much to discover practically in my own backyard?
