What do I need to know about living in Roatan?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Roatan, they said:

"Research & Location. Everyone is different so it depends on their interests. I would do as much research as possible using the internet to understand the various areas of the island and what each have to offer. Many real estate websites are good sources for information on the island and neighborhoods. I wanted to be close to the beach and parking is difficult so I wanted to be within walking distance. I do own a Jeep but use it only once a week to go into town to the largest supermarket. I would suggest maybe a short-term rental (one month) before making a more permanent living location. Plus you will need an attorney for residency application and just other needs / questions from an objective person with your best interests in mind," said one expat in Roatan.
