Hi - My sweetheart and I are coming down in Feb/March to consider relocating to Roatan. I want to start an Eco Tour business in Roatan similar to what I do here in Oregon: ColumbiaRiverEcoTours.com. While visiting, we want to live like expats, or as if we already live there. Some have suggested that we just arrive, and then find a place to stay (for a month or so). What do you think? I have a degree in Oceanography/Ocean Engineering and a United States Coast Guard 100-Ton Captain's license. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Chris

There is also a facebook page for Roatan Rentals. Take alook here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/carrolann/

I suggest not buying anything just yet. Rent first to see where you want to be. Roatan has some touristy and some not so touristy areas. The closer to the touristy areas, the more expensive. I would join the Yahoo groups for Honduras and Roatan and see and post for information there. Here are some Yahoo groups to get you started. https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Living-In-Roatan/info https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/roatan/info Good luck. Steve

It may cost you your life if you are not careful there. This is not the safest area of Honduras, there are many tourists Honduran and foreign and this attracts a lot of bad people and San Pedro Sula is very close. When I was there three winters ago You could see drunks passed out on the street frequently. Trujillo is a better option. Either place $1000 a month Would be enough to live comfortably.. Check my presentation and see for yourself. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-g6wujr_zI8 La Ceiba - Tela, Honduras

Does anyone who currently living in Honduras, know about traveling on Visas? Or what is the best visa to travel on for living in Honduras for 2 years? Would residency be better? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
islandflavour replied most recently with:
Sorry I didn't see your message to reply earlier. Most nationalities receive a 90 day tourist visa on arrival, after which you'll need to leave the country for 72 hours I think, and not to one of the countries that are part of the C4 agreement (so have to go up to Belize or down to Costa Rica, not a neighbouring country). Residency takes at least 6 months, and costs $1,500-$2,000, so probably not worth your while for just staying 2 years, unless you're planning to work or start a business.

Hello We are travelling from Belize to Honduras via bus and water taxi first week of January 2014. Heard the Roatan is nice to visit. Any comments on best way to get there from Honduras, ferry possibly? We like snorkeling and water sports so this sounds interesting. Also any suggestions on places to stay under $75 CDN a night that is safe would be appreciated.

Thanks for responding.

You can take a boat from Placencia to Puerto Cortes on Fridays (or other days go to Punta Gorda to Puerto Barrios, Guatemala and bus from there), then bus to La Ceiba, where the ferry leaves 2 times daily, at 9:30 and 4:30. Tropicair has direct flights from Belize to Roatan that are a lot faster and don't end up costing that much more. In Roatan, Roatan Backpackers' Hostel has apartments for under $50/night, and they have a pool www.roatanbackpackers.com Chillies is another good, inexpensive option.

Hello We have recently retired from Canada and are travelling through Central America. My wife and I are presently in Placencia,Belize and will be travelling by water taxi/bus to port of Punta Gorda. There we will be taking water taxi in Guatamela, then bus into Honduras. We will eventually be travelling to Costa Rica and Panama but will be bussing through Honduras 1st. Also considering a stop in Roatan but unsure. We plan to only travel by bus and NOT later in day, especially at night. Understand that Hedman Alas busline is a good one to take. Looking for advice on where to stop and stay for few days or nights while travelling for I do not want to rush. Although security is important we do not have budget to spend $200 a night at a hotel. Thank you in advance.
