i am 54 and planning to retire before 60 .To retire in Honduras one would need min $600 month income ? How do i show proof of funds as i am to young to draw pension . Would i be able to use my portfolio statement ? is there a blog or forum for Canadians ? thanks Glenn
islandflavour replied on March 28, 2015 with:
I'm pretty sure you need to prove an income higher than that. When I do a quick search, I come up with this information: RETIRED: The applicant must have a lifetime benefit of at least $1,500 per month coming from a private or government institution Source: http://internationalliving.com/countries/honduras/visa/ The other class would be as a RENTISTA, which is $2,500 in monthly income I'd suggest getting in contact with a Honduran lawyer to find out what proof of income you'd need to show. There are some yahoo chat groups that you might find useful, like living in Honduras, and this blog might be of interest (written by an American): http://lagringasblogicito.blogspot.ca/

For Roatan, there's Roatan Community, Roatan Garage Sale, Roatan Buy and Sell- I know there are others, but not sure which ones. There are probably ones for other areas in Honduras too, I"m only familiar with the Roatan ones.

I've been researching Honduras for quite some time now and would like to know the official do's and donts since I've never been. I know about the violence and crime plaguing the country and would like to know if there's any way to avoid it? I am Honduran/Mexican American and have extended family living in Honduras east of San pedro sula but I'm not in contact or even know any of them. Also are there any sort of "groups" for expatriates in Honduras? If so where are they usually held? I'm new here so any insight would be greatly appreciated.
islandflavour replied on March 21, 2015 with:
Where in Honduras are you planning to relocate to? There are a few yahoo groups that you might want to join (living in Honduras, and a few for Roatan as well), and if Roatan is your planned destination, there are Facebook groups too (Roatan Community, Roatan Garage Sale), which can be helpful with getting questions answered before you go and once you're here. Couchsurfing is also a great community (www.couchsurfing.com) : even if you don't want to stay at anyone's home, you can meet up with members for a coffee, or just write them for information, and there are sometimes group meet-ups planned. The areas with the reputations for the most crime are San Pedro Sula and Tegucigalpa. Many expats live in Roatan, Utila and Copan, and I think there's a pretty strong expat community in La Ceiba and maybe Trujillo too (there's a new development there that seems to be attracting a lot of Canadian investors).

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/
suncoast replied most recently with:
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.

rmcdonough replied to the thread Suggestions for Visiting Roatan First week of Jan 2014 on the Honduras forum:
rmcdonough initially posted:
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.
rmcdonough replied most recently with:
Thanks for responding.
islandflavour replied most recently with:
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.
