Hi! My husband and I are looking to bring our two boys, ages 5 and 7 to Roatan for an extended stay. I would love to hear from any other expats who have children there, what schools they go to, areas they live, etc. Thank you for your time!

Hi Shari!
Did you ever make it to Roatan with your boys? I would love to know how your experience is going/went if you did as I am looking to do the same!

I live on Roatan with my 2 boys, 11 and 13 (we've been here pretty much all of their lives). We live in Sandy Bay. The boys go up to school in French Harbour at Kingdom Bilingual School, which is affordable (a little over $100 per month plus transportation), but I'm not loving it (before that, they went to La Luisa in Coxen Hole). If funds are not an issue, there's a private school in Sandy Bay that's very good called Island Academy, or a montessori-type school for the lower grades called Discovery Bay. Up past French Harbour, I've heard Nuna is good too.
I think the island is a fantastic place to raise kids when they're young (as they get older, schooling gets to be more and more of an issue)- if you're living in the community (rather than somewhere gated), then they'll get to be bilingual, spend lots of time playing outside (rather than on screens), never really know what a brand name is (my kids didn't have brand name awareness until this last year, when we were up in Canada for the year due to health issues with my dad). I really like the area of Sandy Bay- close enough to West End if we want to go out for dinner or something, and close to Coxen Hole for groceries, banking etc. We didn't have a car for many years, and didn't really need it as transportation by bus or taxi is easy and cheap. You're welcome to send me a pm if you have any questions about life here.
