Can foreigners own beach-front land in Honduras?
In order to encourage foreign investors, the Honduran government issued a decree in 1990 allowing foreign nationals to freely own coastal land in Honduras. Furthermore, we are able to structure your purchase so that any purchase of 1/4 of an acre or more may be held on to for several years before you must action it - for example; building on the land or selling it.
I have heard that many countries have different ways of purchasing or leasing the land, what type of ownership is there in Honduras?
This is a fee-simple purchase meaning you will receive 100% fully deeded ownership. Once your purchase is complete and the land is transferred into your name, you will receive an ownership package complete with your registered deed. You may then have a home built on the land, hold it for investment purposes, or resell it without

Can my property be rented out and maintained while I am not there?
This is a private, gated, resort community which means that your property is looked after while you are not there.
As it will be sitting empty during that time, you have the option to gain revenue via rental income during those
unused periods. You can rent it out privately or have our on-site rental management company rent and manage it
on your behalf.
