Medical Care in Roatan

Moving to a different area always brings up questions about amenities and services nearby. Whether you’re moving to a different state or a different country, you need to research your options. One major concern wherever you move in the world is your new doctors. Medical care in Roatan is high-quality and low-cost, so you can rest assured that finding appropriate care here on the island is absolutely an option.

Medical Care in Roatan

Roatan offers several medical centers for the island’s residents and multitude of visitors. Because scuba diving is such a popular activity here, there is a medical clinic located at Anthony’s Key Resort in Sandy Bay with a hyperbaric chamber. In case of any scuba accidents, the chamber is available, in addition to the regular medical services also provided at the AKR clinic.

Just down the road from the AKR clinic is Clinica Esperanza, or Nurse Peggy’s Clinic. This clinic offers low- or no-cost services to the island’s residents, assuring that all of our friends and neighbors are well cared for here in Roatan.

There are two hospitals in Coxen Hole: the public hospital and Woods Medical Center. Both offer full hospital services, along with connections to specialized hospitals and other medical centers on the Honduran mainland. While you could access all basic medical services here on the island, specialists are sometimes only available on the mainland.

Think of medical care in #Roatan as you would a smaller city in the U.S. or Canada – you have all the basics covered, but if you need specialized treatment, you might need to head to the bigger city where larger medical centers are available.

Also think of a move to Roatan as preventative medicine. Living here is choosing a healthy, outdoor, active lifestyle to keep you young at heart and happy every day!......

Shipping Items to Roatan

Anytime you move to a new home, you need to minimize. You need to go through absolutely everything you own and decide what to keep, what to donate, what to sell, what to simply throw away. It is a long, hard process. But if you’re moving to paradise…trust us…it’s worthwhile! Whatever you do decide to take with you, you’ll likely have some items that can’t go on the plane. Here’s some insight into shipping items to Roatan.

Shipping Items to Roatan

There are a few different ways to ship things to the island. For smaller items including important documents, Americans often use FedEx or DHL, which is received by RasXpress here in Roatan.

You can collect from their office just across the street from the airport, so it’s a quick pit stop anytime you’re heading along the main road. Dip Shipping has recently offered a new service to fly small shipments to Roatan, which is ideal for documents and small packages.

Canadians have to get their documents apostilled back home for all legal purposes in #Roatan. To send your apostilled documents to Roatan, many Canadians opt to utilize an airline. Both SOSA and CM Airlines offer excellent service and you can collect your documents right at the airport.

For shipping larger items to Roatan, there are a few companies offering services from the U.S.

Dip Shipping is incredibly popular because of their excellent customer service. They will deliver your packages to you, so you don’t need to collect massive parcels or pallets and somehow get them home on your own. Their customer service is always great – even if you have an issue for any reason. Expats in Roatan love Dip Shipping.....

Your Guide to Getting Started in Roatan

Everything You Need To Know - FREE REPORT


This report about living in Roatan, has been created for you by the proprietors of Mariposa Lagoon, a waterfront development on the picturesque Caribbean island of Roatan. Mariposa Lagoon offers stunning ocean views, white sand Caribbean beach access, a welcoming community clubhouse, and all of the island amenities you could possibly need at your fingertips.

The island of #Roatan offers something for everyone. Outdoor activities abound, with the second-largest barrier coral reef close to shore offering some of the world’s best SCUBA diving and snorkeling. Tourists, expats, and locals alike all take advantage of the gorgeous natural beauty of this tranquil island. The sunsets never cease to amaze, and the sea breezes always flow through your windows to remind you that you are in paradise.

The island lifestyle isn’t for everyone…it’s for those who love the feel of sand between their toes and the salt breeze in their hair. It’s for those who feel more comfortable in a swimsuit than a three-piece suit. The island lifestyle is for those who crave freedom and fresh air, who live life for each moment of sunshine rather than each minute on the clock.

There are very few islands in the world that offer an affordable lifestyle, however. Most are out of reach for the average working person, left for dreams and fantasies. But the island of Roatan has remained under the radar, which means the prices haven’t skyrocketed like other Caribbean islands have seen. Roatan is the Caribbean as it used to be – the charming, lush, natural gem without the interference of high-rise hotels or strip malls covered in neon lights. Roatan offers paradise at a discount, without discounting the beauty.

As we look back on 2016 and prepare for another incredible year to come, it’s easy to see why Roatan has been making headlines all around the world. You don’t have to look too hard to find Roatan in international media. In fact, in 2016, Roatan was called everything from an affordable Caribbean isle to an exotic vacation spot.
