Social Distance on Roatan…

Need to practice proper social distance? We can help with that! We’ve been helping our guests “social distance” the right way, since 2009…

 

Like everyone else, we’re staying in for now, but looking forward to hosting your stays soon.

Whalesharks in the Neighborhood!

Its that time of the year when our surrounding waters start to cool down, and in come the whale sharks! Usually cruising by on their way past our neighbor island Utila, these amazing creatures can reach 32 feet long and 20,000 lbs as adults. This past weekend, our manager Ana captured these amazing images on the east side of our reef, just a few minutes from the villa. Just one of the many amazing experiences you can enjoy while visiting Casa Vista Verde!

What a great property and staff! We will be back! I could not give this property a higher recommendation. The staff was great and attentive, the house was large and luxurious and everything was exactly as advertised. We loved the cabana, private beach and boat dock. It was a wonderful way to spend our first week in Roatan. We will definitely be back to stay again!”

To all our guests, thanks for a great year, and happy holidays!

Sincerely,

Casa Vista Verde Staff
