Why Move to Honduras?

Honduras offers a stunning natural landscape, from pristine beaches to lush rainforests, all accompanied by a warm, tropical climate year-round. The cost of living is significantly lower than in the US, allowing expats, especially retirees, to have their budgets go further. With friendly locals and a growing expat community, Honduras is the perfect destination for those seeking adventure and a fresh start.

Top Reasons Expats Move to Honduras

  • Affordable Real Estate: The real estate market in Honduras provides opportunities to rent or buy property at a fraction of the cost in the US, including beachfront properties that would be unattainable for most in North America.
  • Simpler Way of Life: Many expats are drawn to the slower pace of life and the emphasis on family and community values, offering a break from the hustle and bustle of American life.
  • Business Opportunities: With its growing economy, Honduras offers opportunities for expats looking to start businesses. Some of the market opportunities in Honduras include information and communication technologies, healthcare and medical devices, environmental technologies, and more.

  • Retirement Residency: For those who receive a pension or retirement income from abroad, allowing them to live in Honduras as retirees.
  • Rentista Residency: For individuals with a steady income from investments, savings, or other sources outside of Honduras.
  • Investor Residency: For those who invest a significant amount in a Honduran business or real estate.

Given that immigration policies can change, it’s advisable to consult the Honduran immigration website or an immigration attorney for the most current information and guidance on the visa application process.
