Have you ever daydreamed about just ditching it all and moving to a tropical island paradise? Maybe you’ve thought of taking a cruise, finding perfection, and just not getting back on the boat. Dreams can come true you know! Here’s an idea: take a cruise to Roatan…and never go home!
Wait, Where is Roatan?
Roatan is a pristine, verdant island in the Western Caribbean, usually on the same cruise itinerary as Mexico and Belize. Roatan is part of the Bay Islands of Honduras, which boast some of the world’s most beautiful coral reefs.
Roatan is often called the Gem of the Caribbean for its stunning green jungle, bright white soft sand beaches, and turquoise Caribbean Sea quietly lapping the shore all around.
There are direct flights to Roatan from Atlanta, Miami, Houston, Dallas, Toronto, Montreal, Belize City, Panama City, San Salvador, and Grand Cayman. That means you can reach pure paradise in only a few hours from the U.S., Canada, and several other regional airport hubs.
But Roatan is truly a world apart in its beauty and idyllic way of life.
Roatan Cruise Ports
Cruise to Roatan and never go home
Roatan has two cruise ports welcoming ships from Carnival, Princess, Holland America, Costa, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Thomson Cruises, and more.
Mahogany Bay is the Carnival Cruise Lines port in Roatan and offers plenty of on-site activities, bars, and restaurants.
The Port of Roatan is located in the capital of Coxen Hole and offers quick, easy access to the most beautiful beaches and tons of fun activities.
If you’re taking a cruise to Roatan, you might feel the same way so many cruise ship visitors have felt before you: WOW!
This island is stunning and it often causes issues for people when they get back home.
You see, they can’t stop thinking about Roatan and life back home just seems so boring after their cruise visit here.
So, what’s the solution for those post-vacation blues? Don’t go home!
Ok, ok, I say this jokingly…
If you do cruise to Roatan and fall in love, you’ll certainly want to book a return trip as soon as possible.
If you’ve been here before and already know you love this island, join the many others who do real estate tours during their time in port.

Where is Pristine Bay?
Pristine Bay is a luxury community built along Roatan’s north shore in French Harbour. Convenience to shopping, grocery stores, bars, restaurants, and a brand new state of the art hospital make this location ideal for Pristine Bay residents.
Being mid-island offers residents the opportunity to easily spend time on the remote beaches amidst wild Caribbean nature on Roatan’s East End or head to the tourist activities and nightlife of the western side of the island.

Located about 20 minutes from the international airport, life in Pristine Bay Roatan is the epitome of convenience. Take a direct flight from a number of U.S. cities (including Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, or Miami), Canadian cities (including Montreal, Toronto, and Quebec), or elsewhere in the region (Panama, Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador).
Getting to Roatan couldn’t be any easier. And once you land, your luxurious escape is just a short drive away.
What is Life in Pristine Bay Like?
Living in the Pristine Bay community means golfing, diving, fishing, and relaxing on your patio just taking in the Caribbean views. The on-site dive shop, Black Pearl Divers, offers valet service, while the extensive clubhouse provides everything from tennis courts to dining options.
This community is built like the traditional retirement communities you might find in the U.S., with the idea that you don’t really have to leave too often if you don’t want. But the benefits of living in Pristine Bay in Roatan, rather than a U.S. community, are easily identifiable.
The views alone are reason enough to want to spend every day here. This real estate would price most of us completely out in the U.S. or other Caribbean islands. But real estate in Roatan is still accessible…for now .
Residents of Pristine Bay are a varied blend of retirees, snowbirds, locals, and long-term expats. A mixture of condominiums and villas creates a visually appealing layout for the community, too. Pristine Bay isn’t all cookie-cutter identical – we have variety in both architecture and personalities.

Beyond the hotel, a marina is planned within Pristine Bay to offer residents the opportunity to safely dock our own boats. With deep sea fishing only minutes off-shore and some of the world’s most incredible coral reef stretching around all of Roatan, owning a boat is the ideal way to explore your island home.
While construction continues in Pristine Bay, you’ll also notice that the phases were planned well. Currently-available homes within the community are set away from the continued construction, meaning you’ll hardly even notice it. Alternatively, if you want to plan and build your own customized dream home, take a look at lots still available pre-construction.

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!

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.

Roatan offers a wide variety of of accommodations from luxury resorts, beachfront hotels, B&B’s, private homes , bungalows and hostels.
To help you get started I have put together a list of areas with descriptions. Once you choose which part of the island is best for you it will be much easier to find the perfect place to stay.
West Bay: Is one the most popular among tourists. It’s crystal clear water, fine white sand and a coral reef within a 50 feet distance offers the perfect setting to relax in the sun with a good book and a frozen Monkey Lala. There are also many extracurricular activities available such snorkeling, dive boarding, parasailing, paddle boarding, glass bottom boat tour, zip lines etc…..
Several property owners choose to market in these two websites VRBO.com and AIRBNB.com you will find many Roatan condos and homes listed here.
West End:Is another popular tourist area just a boat taxi away from West Bay. It has a newly paved road filled with local businesses including small hotels, bars, restaurants, gift shops and dive shops. This promenade makes for an easy, enjoyable walk and is the best place to grab a bite, bar hop and meet people. Its Half Moon Bay Beach with the reef along the side is ideal for beginner snorkelers.
SANDY BAY: Is conveniently located between West End and Coxen Hole. This community location is home to both locals and expats. The quiet beach is great for snorkeling and diving during the day, a long walk in the afternoon and a spectacular sunset in the evenings.
FRENCH HARBOR: Is a booming business community with banks, grocery stores, hardware stores, shopping centers and more. Although there is not a public beach in French Harbor, most of the resorts and hotels have a beach or swimming pool to enjoy. Many homes in this area offer spectacular ocean views.
EAST END OF THE ISLAND: If you’re truly wanting to get away from it all, this is the part of the island for you. With exquisite beaches with white sand, turquoise blue water and cool breezes the east side of Roatan is perfect for a quiet relaxing and rejuvenating vacation.

Let me paint a picture for you: As work seemingly never ends and days blur together at the office, while the stress heaps onto your shoulders and fills your shoes with lead, a light shines at the end of the tunnel. No, it’s not death from work stress. It’s an escape. It’s a way out for you to recharge and to relax. It’s a much-needed and well-deserved vacation in paradise.
That light at the end of the tunnel is merely another stunning sunset seen from your Roatan vacation home.
Why You Need a Vacation Home
Owning a vacation home is an investment. It’s an investment in terms of your finances – of course. But it’s more of an investment in your happiness and in your sanity. For some reason, working yourself to death is considered to be admirable in the U.S. In Roatan, we consider slowing down and breathing bubbles to be admirable. Perhaps you need a healthy dose of the two combined.
A vacation to Roatan soothes your soul and refreshes your mind. You’ll return home rejuvenated and ready to take on the next big project. And knowing that you always have the option to hop on a plane and land in your own personal paradise is enough to maintain your sanity even in the chaos of work and daily stresses back home.

A Roatan Vacation Home is Your Best Choice
If you are considering purchasing a vacation home, I have plenty of insight particular to Roatan. There are so many opportunities on the island that could be used as vacation rentals, which are quickly becoming the option of choice for most tourists visiting the island. People love the idea of a home-away-from-home, so a vacation rental becomes the obvious solution. But a home-away-from-home that still offers all the amenities and convenience of a resort is the absolute perfect combination.
Tourists coming to Roatan want to relax, lounge on the beach, enjoy the stunning Caribbean Sea, and have a fun time with friends or family. While tourists want the comfort and the privacy of a vacation rental, the idea of cleaning and cooking is never appealing while on vacation.
Many tourists opt for the vacation rental option because it’s more affordable than an all-inclusive resort package. But the combination of a resort vacation rental is ideal. Tourists can take advantage of all the conveniences of the resort while enjoying the full benefits of an independent condo.
Owning a vacation home in a Roatan resort is the best way for you to capitalize on this growing trend of vacation rentals within a resort community. You can take advantage of having a full staff available for the guests staying in your home, ensuring that they enjoy their stay and that your property is well cared for while you’re away.
Your vacation home is your own escape from reality – a space to visit and revisit whenever the need arises.
But a Roatan vacation home can also offer you the ideal opportunity to earn on your investment while you’re back home earning a paycheck. Contact me today to discuss the incredible options we have for a Roatan vacation home that is perfect for you.
