Caribe Point, Honduras -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/08/2015 -- After years of slowly recuperating from the global recession, the real estate market on the Caribbean island of Roatan has shown major growth in 2015. This growth puts this small island at the forefront of the Caribbean real estate market.
In 2015, the first major leap in real estate investment happened since prior to the recession. Real estate agents and developers are incredibly optimistic that this indicates enormous growth in coming years. Several factors have increased Roatan's fame in recent years, bringing more tourists and investors to the island steadily.
Carnival Corporation built its own cruise port terminal on the island, while Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines is a part owner in the island's other cruise port. The international airport, Juan Manuel Galvez International (code RTB) brings in direct flights on United, American, Delta, IBC, Sunwing, Transat, Avianca, and Tropic Air. Talks with Southwest Airlines also began in earnest this year.
This increase in tourism has made Roatan a premier destination for investment property or a vacation home. With one of the lowest costs of living in the entire Caribbean, Roatan also offers an affordable, comfortable lifestyle for retirees.
International Living magazine regularly names Roatan one of the top retirement destinations in the world. Their December 2015 issue calls Roatan's West Bay Beach one of the world's top five up-and-coming beach towns for retirees.
TripAdvisor's 2015 Travelers' Choice Awards named Roatan the #3 island in the entire world, while Forbes, CNN, The Huffington Post, and others have all praised Roatan as a top tourist destination. Here are the top 5 reason Roatan is a perfect retirement location.
