Those of us who live here know it already, but the word is getting out: Roatan is a premier destination. We are regularly on the list for places to visit and islands to live on. In fact, in TripAdvisor’s “Best Of 2017” list, Roatan is one of the top destinations in the world!
Top Destinations in the World
Roatan comes in at #15 in the entire world according to TripAdvisor rankings. Considering the wide range of places included in that top destinations list, we are thrilled to see how much people love Roatan!
Other top destinations in the world include London, Paris, Rome, and NYC. Amongst those giants of tourism and historical fanfare, Roatan seems even smaller. But that’s what makes this list so wonderful.
Being voted by travellers as a top destination in the entire world is a true honor. It means that the smaller numbers of tourists who visit Roatan as compared to those massive capital cities all believe that Roatan is worthy of the accolades.
We’re more than proud to receive the recognition from all our visitors. But, those of us who live here will say this isn’t news to us!
We’ve always known that this piece of paradise is one of the top places in the whole world.
Visit Roatan in 2017
If you haven’t yet visited our beautiful tropical isle, there’s no better time than the present. With continuous recognition on an international scale, we will undoubtedly grow and change in the years to come.
From a real estate perspective, of course that’s promising! Buyers can still grab a great deal now before prices inevitably rise with increased interest in Roatan.
Sellers can make plans with confidence that their property will sell quickly as more and more people want to move to paradise.
It’s no wonder that even cruise ship tourists ask for real estate tours. Once you see the beauty of this Caribbean island, it’s easy to get sucked into what we call The Vortex.
Roatan just mesmerizes you and keeps you here longer than you might have intended to stay.
(I’m not saying you should purposely miss your cruise ship all aboard…but if you do, just give me a call and I’ll help you find a great place to stay!)
Why Is Roatan a Top Destination?
There are so many reasons to love the island of Roatan. If you look through TripAdvisor for the island, you’ll notice endless activity options.
Roatan is known as a scuba diver and snorkeler’s paradise. The coral reef that fringes close to shore is the second largest in the world, smaller only than the famous Great Barrier Reef.
Roatan also offers plenty of other water activities, from paddleboarding in our calm sea to deep-sea fishing only a few minutes from shore.
You can walk through botanical gardens or soar through the jungle on a zipline canopy tour.
The diversity of fun on this small island is truly astounding! Add to all that the breath-taking natural beauty and you can easily see why visitors love Roatan so much.
I love Roatan so much that I moved my family here after years of living in the States. Our lifestyle is dramatically better here. We have the Caribbean Sea as our front yard and playground…it was the best move we ever made.
If you want to move to paradise, let me know what you’re looking for and let’s make it happen together. I look forward to helping make your dreams your new reality!
