Welcome to Roatan The Island Jewel of the Western Caribbean


he island of Roatan is a place few have seen, yet half a billion in luxury casitas and townhomes are currently under construction. Roatan is magnificent. Clear water, great climate, lush, hilly, friendly, and modern in the ways you want in a resort destination. Indeed, Roatan is one of those few remaining places that seems untouched…and it’s a little over two hours from Texas! Roatán, located between the islands of Útila and Guanaja, is the largest of Honduras’ Bay Islands. The island was formerly known as Ruatan and Rattan. It is approximately 60 kilometres (37 mi) long, and less than 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) across at its widest point. The island consists of two municipalities (out of a total of four in the department): Jose Santos Guardiola in the east (named for the former president of Honduras) and Roatán (also including the Cayos Cochinos) further south in the west. The most populous town of the island is Coxen Hole, capital of Roatán municipality, located in the southwest. Other important towns include French Harbour, West End, and Oak Ridge, the capital of Jose Santos Guardiola municipality. The easternmost quarter of the island is separated by a convoluted channel through the mangroves that is 15 meters wide on the average. This section is called Helene, or Santa Elena in Spanish. Satellite islands at the eastern end are Morat, Barbaretta, and Pigeon Cay. Further west between French Harbour and Coxen Hole is Barefoot Cay. Known as Burial Key until 2001, Barefoot Cay now is privately owned and houses a luxury resort popular with celebrities. Located near the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, the largest barrier reef in the Caribbean Sea (second largest worldwide after Australia’s Great Barrier Reef), Roatán has become an important cruise ship and scuba diving destination in Honduras. Tourism is most important economic 4

sector, though fishing is also an important source of income for islanders. Roatan is located within 50 minutes of LGS. The island is served by the Juan Manuel Gálvez International Airport. HISTORY The pre-Columbian indigenous peoples of the Bay Islands are believed to have been related to Paya, Maya, Lenca or Jicaque, which were the cultures present on the mainland. Christopher Columbus on his fourth voyage (1502–1504) came to the islands as he visited the neighboring Bay Island of Guanaja. Soon after the Spanish began raiding the islands for slave labor. More devastating for Native American communities was exposure to Eurasian infectious diseases to which they had no immunity, such as smallpox and measles. Diseases ran in epidemics, and no indigenous people survived. Throughout European colonial times, the Bay of Honduras attracted a diverse array of individual settlers, pirates, traders and military forces, engaged in various economic activities and playing out political struggles between the European powers, chiefly Britain and Spain. Roatán and the other islands were used as frequent resting points for sea travelers. On several occasions, they were subject to military occupation. In 1723/1724 an approximately 20-year-old-man from New England, Philip Ashton, managed to survive as a castaway on the island for sixteen months until he was rescued (see Edward E. Leslie, Desperate Journeys, Abandoned Souls, 1988, pp. 100–120). During that time they were governed by self-proclaimed King Kyle Edward Chauncey, a redhaired white man leading mostly Spanish speakers among those of European descent. In contesting with the Spanish for colonization of the Caribbean, the English occupied the Bay Islands on and off between 1550 and 1700. During this time, buccaneers found the vacated, mostly unprotected

The 20th century saw continued population growth resulting in increasing economic changes, and environmental challenges. A population boom began with an influx of Spanish-speaking Mestizo migrants from the Honduran mainland. In the last decades they tripled the original resident population. Mestizo migrants settled primarily in the urban areas of Coxen Hole and Barrio Los Fuertes (near French Harbour). In these areas Spanish is common, with English speakers more common among descendants of early colonists, as well as in the other areas inhabited chiefly by islanders rather than former mainlanders.

islands a haven for safe harbor and transport. English, French and Dutch pirates established settlements on the islands. They frequently raided the cumbersome Spanish cargo vessels carrying gold and other treasures from the New World to Spain. In 1797, the British defeated the Black Carib, who had been supported by the French, in a battle for control of the Windward Caribbean island of St. Vincent. Weary of their resistance to British plans for sugar plantations, the British rounded up the St. Vincent Black Carib and deported them to Roatán. The majority of Black Carib migrated to Trujillo on mainland Honduras, but a portion remained to found the community of Punta Gorda on the northern coast of Roatán. The Black Carib, whose ancestry includes Arawak and African Maroons, remained in Punta Gorda, becoming the Bay Island’s first permanent post-Columbian settlers. They also migrated from there to parts of the northern coast of Central America, becoming the foundation of the modern-day Garífuna culture. The majority permanent population of Roatán originated from the Cayman Islands near Jamaica. They arrived in the 1830s shortly after Britain’s abolition of slavery in 1838. The changes in labor force disrupted the economic structure of Caymanian culture. Caymanians were largely a seafaring culture and were familiar with the area from turtle fishing and other activities. Former Caymanian slaveholders were among the first to settle in the seaside locations throughout primarily western Roatán. Former slaves also migrated from the Cayman Islands, in larger number than planters, during the late 1830s and 1840s. Altogether, the former Caymanians became the largest cultural group on the island.

But in terms of population and economic influence, the mainlander influx was dwarfed by the overwhelming tourist presence in most recent years. Numerous American, Canadian, British, New Zealand, Australian and South African settlers and entrepreneurs engaged chiefly in the fishing industry, and later, provided the foundation for attracting the tourist trade. The rapid and dramatic demographic changes that Roatán has experienced in the 21st century has contributed to the complexity of the environmental challenges of the island. In 1998, Roatán suffered some damage from Hurricane Mitch, temporarily paralyzing most commercial activity. Native islanders claimed the storm broke three previously undisturbed Aguila shipwrecks. CARACOLES The Caracol people are an English-speaking people who have been established in Northern Honduras (specifically, the Bay Islands) since the early 19th century. They are chiefly of European and British-AfroCaribbean descent. Caracol is Spanish for “conch, snail or shell”, and relates the people of the Bay Islands to their unique environment and their sea-faring culture. In its current usage, the term caracol refers to all people born in the Bay Islands region, and their descendants. The region of the Bay Islands encompasses the three major islands of Roatan, Utila, and Guanaja, and the smaller islands or keys. These people are also called “Islanders,” especially locally. Over time the form of English spoken by the Caracol has changed. The language differs mostly in morphology but also in pronunciation and accent and, to a lesser extent, in syntax and vocabulary, from the English of the other British Caribbean colonies. They are similar enough to be mutually intelligible.

For a brief period in the 1850s, Britain declared the Bay Islands its colony. Within a decade the Crown ceded the territory formally back to Honduras. British colonists were sent though, and asked William Walker, a freebooter with a private army, to help end the crisis in 1860 by invading Honduras; he was captured upon landing in Trujillo and executed there. In the latter half of the 19th century, the island populations grew steadily and established new settlements all over Roatán and the other islands. Settlers came from all over the world and played a part in shaping the cultural face of the island. Islanders started a fruit trade industry which became profitable. By the 1870s it was purchased by American interests, most notably the New Orleans and Bay Islands Fruit Company. Later companies, the Standard Fruit and United Fruit Companies became the foundation for modern-day fruit companies, the industry which gave Honduras the sobriquet “banana republic”.

hough you just might run across George Strait picking a song of unrequited love on his guitar outside the Estancia equestrian center, it’s an old Bob Wills tune that describes the setting of the 1,000-acre Estancia community with its “miles and miles of Texas, all the stars up in the sky…gonna live here ‘til I die.” From the upper elevations of Estancia, some of the highest in Kendall County, miles of rolling Hill Country terrain are indeed what you see, natural and untamed but for scattered multi-acre home sites. Developer Tom Cusick and his family enjoyed the property as part of the larger Thunder Valley Ranch he purchased in the ‘90s as a return to an early family ranching tradition. In 2006 he decided to share Estancia as an extension of his own lifestyle and values, a private, family-friendly, gated residential community emphasizing an active but luxurious lifestyle.


Estancia’s amenities put you in mind of a resort – or a very fancy dude ranch. For those who love horses, there’s a covered equestrian center and all-cedar riding ring. With an adjacent indoor gymnasium, the facility covers 12 acres. Another 200 acres of the property serve as a greenbelt with 10 miles of tree-lined riding, biking and hiking trails. At the end of the ride, horses head for the barn and riders head to the center’s private cantina. Serene is the only way to describe the four-acre Lake Estancia, fed by natural streams and stocked with bass and catfish. As your child pulls up a catch, neighbors wave from a distant canoe. Beside the lake, young soccer players sprint across Estancia’s soccer/football field while others play ball on the lakeside baseball diamond. The Lakeside Pavilion, with a 1,400 square foot patio and hand-crafted stone fireplace, is a spectacular place for family picnics.

American luxury estates

Imagine shooting off the tensions of the day at Estancia’s skeet deck, or hitting balls at the three-par golf course. Or you could head to the nearby Resort at Tapatio Springs, which offers golf and dining memberships. Unlike other high-end developments in the area, Estancia is just three miles on Highway 46 from IH-10 and the historic town of Boerne, home to quaint shops and period buildings but also to fine schools, dining, concerts, festivals, sports and H-E-B Grocery – even a Mercedes Benz dealership. But beyond its quaint facade, Boerne is the largest city in Kendall County, which boasts the 4th highest income per capita in Texas. Boerne ISD, with just over 6,700 students, strongly encourages parent involvement. Maybe that’s why Boerne High is one of the few public high schools receiving a Great Schools Rating of 9 out of 10, plus a high community rating. (To learn more, see For business or pleasure, downtown San Antonio is all of a 30-minute drive. Closer yet are some of San Antonio’s world-class golf, country clubs, resorts and shopping meccas such as Neiman Marcu and Nordstrom’s.

“In San Antonio we’ve been spoiled by rapid driving times, but to many newcomers, a 30-minute commute is average, and three miles from wilderness to civilization is practically unheard of,” says Rick Kuper, broker of San Antonio’s premier luxury real estate company, Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty. Kuper Sotheby’s has exclusive marketing and sales rights for the development’s 36 remaining lots, and is also working with preferred builders designing custom homes for buyers. Private architects and builders are also welcome. Of the original 75 homes sites, 36 remain, ranging from three to 25 acres in two phases. Currently under construction is a 5,693 square foot spec home by Burdick & Christofolis, to be priced at $1,795,000. Minimum home size in Estancia is 3,000 square feet. Though Bob Wills penned the tune about miles of Texas, it’s George Strait and his wife who elected to purchase a home site at Estancia and experience the Texas way of life. You might want to consider joining them. For a spectacular private tour, please contact Dudley Hays at 210-822-6880. 7
