10 Affordable Caribbean Islands for Vacation Homes

Fancy a vacation home in the Caribbean? Here are some affordable islands in the Caribbean to buy a vacation home and turn the dream into reality!
Roatán is an island in Honduras known for its great diving opportunities. It’s also one of the cheapest Caribbean islands to buy a vacation home; for second home-seekers, it offers a wide selection of options for exceptional and affordable properties. From a beach house to a more inland home surrounded by lush landscapes, buyers won’t run out of choices.

The Top Emerging Caribbean Islands, According to Travel Agents

There are a lot of well-known and well booked Caribbean destinations. But what about the ones that still have massive growth potential. Several Caribbean specialists recently shared the islands that, while they may not be totally unknown, are seeing a robust increase in inquiries.

Roatan is one of my favorite emerging Caribbean destinations to recommend to family travelers.” said founder and advisor of Mango Tree Travel. Roatan is gaining popularity among other travelers seeking an off the beaten path and less developed Caribbean experience, including families. Roatan is affordable, easy to navigate, and families love the stunning and calm beaches.

DEPARTURES – The Travel Issue
Departures Magazine recently published an expose highlighting Roatan as one of the world’s true gems.

Lizzette Kattan Pozzi recalls a lifetime of technicolour memories spent on the magical island of Roatán, a far-f!ung Caribbean paradise sixty-five kilometres off the coast of Honduras.

“ The best way to observe a fish,” French filmmaker and oceanographer Jacques-Yves Cousteau once said, “is to become a fish.” This is how I feel when I visit Roatán. My connection to this pristine little island, off the northern coast of Honduras, began in the 1970s but remains embedded in my soul. Even all these decades later.
