We have travelled every country in Central America and Mexico and have chosen Roatan as our place of paradise. Imagine National Geographic tropical rainforest environment and Jacques Cousteau underwater adventure all within easy kayaking distance at the beautiful fringe coral reef off Punta Blanca. No need to pay for snorkelling tours, you can even swim to the reef, as there are sand bars/turtle grass to rest at. What more could you ask for if you are a rainforest explorer of flora/fauna? We hope you will come to experience what we have found to be a life altering adventure. Pura vida (pure life)

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: Elementary/Secondary School Teacher for 30 years Builder/Owner of a 50 acre organic hay/garden vegetable farm, passive solar, off-grid solar/turbine farm and barn. Environmentalist who lives the small footprint on the planet. Healthy, natural, organic, world traveller who invested in Jiveshack, Punta Blanca after travelling all of Mexico, the Caribbean islands and all of Central American countries. Roatan is the unspoiled jewel of the Caribbean. Had to by the property because it is the only country where you can swim or kayak to the pristine coral reef at your leisure. All other countries have tours. Roatan is freedom at its most tropical luxuriance. (visited Costa Rica 6 times and Roatan has it beat).

                  Why the Owner Chose Punta Blanca:
                  Tranquility, natural, pristine beauty of the rainforest. Quick stroll to the Caribbean Sea and kayaking, diving, swimming. Breathtaking sunrises and sunsets on the north shore. All of this is available at Jiveshack. Best beaches on the east end of the island at Paya Bay resort. Spectacular hiking trails, lookouts, variety of secluded beaches and inexpensive yoga classes in a huge studio perched high overlooking the Caribbean (never have seen anything like this resort in my 30 years of travel). Great food and free admission to all their beaches.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The town of Oak Ridge is a short 5 minutes drive away with all the amenities of the rest of the island but fresher produce, lower costs, small natural village atmosphere and Banco Atlantida (for all your banking needs) and restaurants. A more naturalized, small village environment to experience with all the joys of adults and children out visiting neighbours and family on weekends. Riding their horses around the town. Very calm, touching and a glimpse of simple life only to be seen in the east end of the island in Oak Ridge.
