Roatan is where the Cayman Islands were 15 years ago in terms of real estate development. Prices, while rising, are still extremely low by Caribbean Island standards. Major cruise lines are developing massive infrastructure projects on the island and the Canadian company Onyx has recently invested in an hugely upgraded power grid. North Americans and Europeans are flocking to the island as a retirement haven...and the food, world famous scuba diving, and welcoming nature of the local authorities have them happy once they arrive.
An excellent, up and coming island to watch and investment to consider!
