If you’re looking for an investment opportunity, take a look at commercial sales in Roatan. This lush Caribbean island is growing constantly and there are always new needs to be met for both the resident population and the visiting tourists.
About the Island of Roatan
Roatan is a relatively recent addition to the Caribbean vacation stage. Just two decades ago, it was really only scuba divers coming here to enjoy our beautiful stretch of coral reef.
The world’s second-largest barrier reef (second only to the Great Barrier Reef) fringes our Bay Islands, easily accessible just offshore for snorkeling or scuba diving.
With increased interest from scuba divers came increased service providers in the form of dive shops, bars, and restaurants. The growth has been steady since then.
With the addition of an international airport, Roatan has especially seen tremendous increase from North American visitors and expats. Direct flights arrive from Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, and Miami every week, plus Montreal and Quebec during the winter.
Two cruise ship ports bring around a million day-visitors each year, many of whom return to Roatan for longer visits after seeing the island’s beauty.
With such international interest, it’s no wonder many expats are coming to Roatan with business ideas in mind.
As the island’s population grows, and as more and more tourists visit our island for a day or up to months at a time, the need for unique services and products increases as well.
