Overview – Roatan Real Estate

Roatan is the largest of the Bay Islands which lie off the coast of the Central American countries of Honduras and Belize in the Western Caribbean. Renowned for its lush forests, palm fringed beaches, crystal clear sea and 34 miles of coral reef teeming with marine life, Roatan is ideal for laid back island living. The 50 sq mile island is accessible too – there are direct flights to Roatan’s international airport from various cities in North, Central and South America. Step off the plane, unwind and enjoy fishing, diving or just relaxing on the beach.

Most of the development is concentrated on the western tip of the island around West End and West Bay. If you are considering investing in Roatan real estate, there are several resorts with homes for sale – ideal for enjoying the beaches, water sports and golf. Further east there are a number of individual homes for sale, many in spectacular beachfront or waterfront locations.

Roatan real estate is available at a fraction of the cost of other Caribbean islands. However, following the lead of nearby Costa Rica and Panama, Roatan’s real estate market is rapidly developing.
