The little Caribbean island of Roatán was first put on the map as far as tourism goes by scuba divers attracted by a pristine stretch of the Mesoamerican Reef (the world’s second largest) just offshore. There are dozens of world-class dive spots in around Roatán and neighboring islands, many of them protected marine parks.
A high percentage of visitors to this day are divers. But it’s also been discovered by vacationers, cruise ship goers, and expats (full-timers and snowbirds) in search of warm weather, island vibes, and beautiful scenery. Think verdant, tree clad mountains, white-sand and golden-sand beaches, and the clear Caribbean…and, of course, palm trees swaying in the breeze.
A bonus for North American visitors: because it was a British possession for lengthy periods during its history, the island is predominantly English speaking, even though Roatán is part of Honduras today.
Casa Mermaidia is a four-bedroom home on a hillside on the south shore with multiple decks from which to enjoy the sea view. It’s sold furnished, and you can walk to the famed West Bay Beach.
