Welcome to Vivaro - Roatan. Three luxury oceanfront homes in the West End.
Roatan is the largest of the Bay Islands and is located in the Caribbean Sea, 35 miles off the North Coast of Honduras. Pristine coral reefs, white sand beaches, local villages, and an international airport makes this island the most popular of the Bay Islands of Honduras.
Formed by the collision of tectonic plates Roatan was virtually thrust up from the Caribbean itself. The beautiful and exotic “iron shore” is, indeed the stony residual of ancient reef, itself, with the many skeletons of the living coral still visible in its structure. Nowhere else are the wonders of the reef so close, since, here the reef and the shore are extensions of each other.
The island is hilly, best described as a “small Jamaica” with elevations as much as 1600 ft. providing wonderful vistas and a variety of wooded and “rain forest” habitats.
English is the language of the island, with all the Bay Islands being a British Crown Colony until 1860 when they ceded to the nation of Honduras. Being, now part of Honduras, business and government are now transacted largely in Spanish, adding an exotic flair to the island vacation.
