Scuba diving in Honduras was chosen in May to be the featured
destination at Spainâ€™s Ultima Frontera Travel Agency.
Ultima Frontera - “the final frontier” -
specializes in dive vacations worldwide.
The agency is also sponsoring a conference series this year
titled:”The Nature of the Planetâ€™s Sea Floors”.
A conference on Bay Islands sea life will be held in Madrid
on May 29 at the Hotel Wellington (8 Calle Vasquez).
There, participants will see more than an hour of underwater
footage filmed in the Bay Islands in April. The video features
the beauty of the marine life that inhabits the worldâ€™s
second largest coral reef.
A vast diversity of fish, corals, plants, mammals and everything
else a diver would expect to find in such a spectacular destinations
as Guanaja, Roatan, Utila and the Hog Keys will be included
in the show.
The Bay Islands reef is part of the Mesoamerican barrier.
It is home to nearly all of the marine species that inhabit
the Central Caribbean.
The presentation will also feature a swim with the dolphins
that are currently being studied at the Institute of Marine
Sciences on Roatan.
Ultima Frontera prepared the presentation with the help of
the Office of Honduran Tourism in Madrid under the coordination
of Sibella Arguello.
