Scuba Diving in Roatan Honduras

Roatan is known as a scuba diver’s paradise. In fact, it’s the reason tourism developed on the island as more and more divers started visiting and requiring more services. Scuba diving in Roatan Honduras is one of the bucket list places for divers around the world. Let’s talk about why…

Dive sites in Roatan

Dive Sites in Roatan

Roatan is surrounded by the second-largest barrier reef in the world: the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef. It stretches from the Yucatan Peninsula down and around our Bay Islands of Honduras. It’s so close to Roatan’s shore that you can easily swim out to snorkel or dive, without needing a boat.

Most diving in Roatan is, however, boat diving. It makes it easier to reach different dive sites and allows you to drift dive safely. The currents aren’t strong in Roatan, but it’s still nice to stay along the wall and not have to double back to the boat.

The Roatan Marine Park oversees the installation and naming of dive sites around Roatan. Their conservation efforts are absolutely vital to the survival of this fragile ecosystem, so it’s important to support them however you can.

They have buoys for over 50 dives just around the West Bay/West End/Sandy Bay area alone! They also patrol the coastline to prevent illegal poaching or other activities.

Scuba Diving in Roatan

Scuba Diving in Roatan Honduras

The scuba diving conditions in Roatan are outstanding! We enjoy extensive visibility, warm waters, and minimal currents. That’s also what makes Roatan such a premier location for students to learn to dive. It’s a beautiful, comfortable location to do scuba courses.

There are dive shops all around the island, from the East End to the end of West Bay Beach. If you move to Roatan and want to dive, you can choose whichever dive shop is your favorite. Many will offer discounts to locals who want to dive regularly. It’s also a great way to show your friends and family more of the beauty of Roatan when they come to visit!

Throughout much of the year, dive shops tend to use 3mm shortie wetsuits for guests. Dive professionals often opt for full wetsuits only because they’re in the water all day everyday. If you’re diving in the height of summer, you might not even need a wetsuit at all!

Living in Roatan and Diving

Since I moved to Roatan, I’ve learned not only the basics of diving…I’m actually an Advanced Open Water Diver! I’m proud to say that because I think it’s so important to see and understand the coral reef system around our island home. Once you see the beauty and the diversity of marine life that’s there, you can’t help but want to protect it.

As residents, whether local or expat, it’s our responsibility to do our part supporting the Roatan Marine Park and encouraging sustainable practices in tourism.

The coral reef here is amazing and it’s what draws massive tourism investment annually. But, most importantly, it is fragile and susceptible to human interference, so we need to be careful and protect it for future generations.

If you move to Roatan, you simply have to try scuba diving. Even if you only try it once, it’s important to understand what’s under the surface so we can all work together to keep Roatan beautiful.

Are you thinking of moving to Roatan? Do you already scuba dive? Get in touch and I’ll share my insights from living and diving here in Roatan.

Become an Expat in Roatan

Roatan MLS 15-387 Sundancer Cabana

Roatan MLS 15-387 Sundancer Cabana

The island of Roatan offers an idyllic Caribbean lifestyle, filled with sunshine and warmth year-round. If you are considering moving to the Caribbean, consider becoming an expat in Roatan. Whatever specific lifestyle you seek, I can promise you’ll find the perfect neighborhood and community here in Roatan.

Move to Roatan

Moving to Roatan is easier than you think. North Americans can visit Honduras and receive up to 90 days on a tourist visa upon entering the country. That means you could come stay in Roatan for up to three months with no need for residency or any advance visa. Three months is an ideal amount of time to try out the lifestyle and get to know the area better before deciding to stay permanently.

To become an expat in Roatan, it’s best to actually become a Honduran resident. If you’re planning to live here full time, applying for residency is well worthwhile. After those three months on a tourist visa, you will have to leave the country for a minimum of 72 hours before being allowed to enter again.

While this isn’t impossible, it can become a nuisance if you need to leave four times each year to renew your visa. Gaining residency allows you to stay without worrying about visa renewals.

If you are retired, residency is an ideal option. Pensioners can apply based on a minimum income and retirees even receive extra dispensations to import a vehicle and other household goods without additional tax.

If you’re planning to become an expat in Roatan and work here, you definitely require a right to work via residency permission. You can start a corporation and then apply for residency via the company – that’s a fairly common route for many foreign workers and entrepreneurs.

I’m happy to connect you with a reputable attorney here in Roatan so you can discuss your options. Often, your real estate purchase and residency can be combined into a seamless transaction to achieve the best results.

Become an Expat in Roatan

The Roatan expat community is incredibly welcoming! You will easily make new friends and find a supportive community here on the island. From retirees gathering on the beach on Mondays to sunset drinks after a day of diving, from volunteer organizations to helping new expats learn the ropes, expats in Roatan are a fantastic crew.

You can socialize as much or as little as you’d like. You can do different outdoor activities every single day, or just laze in a hammock all day long.

You’ll likely become friends with someone who owns a boat (if you don’t own one yourself), so day trips and sunset cruises are not uncommon. Days spent lounging in the sand or by a pool are typical. Afternoons chilling on a dock while chatting with a neighbor are all too familiar.

Life in Roatan is truly idyllic.

Don’t be afraid to get in touch if you have questions about moving to Roatan and becoming an expat. I’m happy to help guide you with advice on the neighborhoods of Roatan, residency options, and various real estate opportunities.

The island of Roatan is comprised of two municipalities, each consisting of a multitude of neighborhoods. If you want to move to Roatan and invest in real estate, it’s important to research the many different neighborhoods and the lifestyles common to each. Understanding the layout of Roatan will help you to better understand your options for living in Roatan .

A vacation to Roatan will show you the highlights of a specific neighborhood where you stay. You’ll try local restaurants and visit local bars; you might even stop into some local shops and mini-marts.

But living in Roatan is very different from a vacation. You’ll need more resources and amenities, perhaps access to schools or jobs, and you’ll seek a certain vibe for your permanent neighborhood.

Let’s go through the layout of Roatan so you have a general idea of what to expect from different parts of the island.

Roaan MunicipalitiesRoatan’s Two Municipalities

Roatan is comprised of two official municipalities: Municipality of Roatan and Municipality of Santos Guardiola.

The Municipality of Santos Guardiola is the eastern half of Roatan, from First Bight all the way east. The official seat of government is located in Oakridge, which is also the main center of commerce for the municipality.

The Municipality of Roatan is the western half of the island, comprising everything west of First Bight. The seat of government is located in Coxen Hole, which is also a large commercial center. French Harbour is another major commercial center for this municipality, although its proximity to the East End makes it a convenient commercial area for both municipalities.

Roatan ExpatPopular Expat Neighborhoods in Roatan

Expats in Roatan live in neighborhoods from the western tip of the island all the way to the eastern tip. This diversity allows expats to choose from any of a variety of lifestyles and amenities.

If you want a quiet Caribbean retirement, head east. If you need a job or have young kids, you should look on the western side of the island. Whatever you seek, you’re sure to find it in Roatan.

For a quick breakdown, here are some of the most popular neighborhoods and their amenities.

West Bay consists of not just West Bay Beach, but also the neighborhoods off the beach. On the beach, you’ll find condo options at some of the most popular resorts on the island. Off the beach, single-family homes can be found in various design styles.

West End is another popular expat neighborhood, with a younger demographic and more of a laidback vibe. The single road running along the water is filled with tourists, locals, and expats, many of whom are barefoot and stopping to chat with everyone along the way.

Sandy Bay is a long stretch between West End and Coxen Hole where many expats search for homes on the beach. The convenience of access to commercial Coxen Hole and the nightlife and activities of West End makes Sandy Bay a desirable permanent home base.

Heading into French Harbour, Pristine Bay is another popular neighborhood. The island’s only golf course is located in this gated community, along with high-end, modern condos and villas.

Heading out of French Harbour, Pineapple Villas, Coral View Village, and Parrot Tree are three more gated communities offering many amenities for residents.

Beyond Parrot Tree heading east, you’ll come upon several popular East End neighborhoods, including First Bight, Second Bight, Politilly Bight, Milton Bight,  Jonesville Point, Diamond Rock, Calabash Bight, and Port Royal. Each of these neighborhoods offers more tranquillity and privacy than the western end of Roatan.Where to live in RoatanWhere to live in Roatan

Houses and Condos on the Island of Roatan

Anytime you’re moving to a new home, it’s important to understand your destination and the pros and cons of home design. On the tropical island of Roatan, you might encounter very different circumstances than what you’re used to back home. A tropical environment with unique critters and climate can mean a different style of home is necessary. Before you choose your new home in the Caribbean, here’s an idea of the differences between houses and condos on the island of Roatan.

Why Buy a House in Roatan

Houses offers privacy, space, and usually a garden area that you can fill with luscious tropical plants and flowers. Grow your own banana or mango trees, fill your garden with hummingbird feeders, and marvel at the vibrant flowers blossoming throughout the year.

If you buy a house in Roatan, you’ll get to enjoy the authentic Caribbean lifestyle. Hang your clothes to dry out in the sunshine, fill your home with fresh sea breezes, and lounge on your patio in complete privacy.

Why Buy a Condo in Roatan

Owning your own house offers privacy and space, but owning a condo offers you more freedom from maintenance. In a condo community, you have neighbors and designated professionals around you at all times, ensuring that your investment – your dream home – is well cared for and includes all the amenities you desire.

Living in an island condo community provides community spaces, like pools, restaurants, spas, gyms, and more. Additionally, most condo communities have beachfront access for you to enjoy. When the Caribbean Sea is your front yard, you don’t need much interior space at all!

Real Estate in Roatan

Roatan is a booming real estate market, so you can truly take your pick of dream home options on the island. If your dream home looks like an island villa overlooking the sea, or a modern condo only steps away from the pool and the beach, there are plenty of options to choose from for the perfect real estate in Roatan.

If you’re more independent and want to revel in the adventure of living on a foreign tropical island, look for houses that will give you the chance to interact with the local community more. You’ll need to make friends to learn which hardware stores have what you need, which contractors can do what you want, and which utility companies will give you the best service. Those types of questions connect you to your neighbors, helping you to meet new people and learn more about your new home.

If your idea of tropical paradise is living in a community on the beach where you can step out your front door to enjoy poolside drinks or beachfront breakfast, take a look at the condo community of Infinity Bay. Whether you live here full-time, or you come to Roatan as a snowbird or for the occasional vacation, living in an island condo community means you have all the gorgeous natural surroundings you imagine, while enjoying the convenience and ease of community amenities. You’ll know your home is taken care of while you’re away, and you can come back to find it just as you left it, without a worry in the world.

Whatever your tropical dream home looks like, I’m sure I can show you houses and condos on the island of Roatan that will be absolutely perfect. Contact me today to see what is available now.
