Roatan's Pristine Bay Resort More Accessible Than Ever with New TACA Flights

One-Stop Service from New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Houston, Washington, D.C. and Orlando Now Available

(ROATAN, Honduras) - Pristine Bay Resort, home of The Black Pearl Golf Course designed by Perry and Pete Dye, will be accessible on TACA via daily, one-stop service to Roatan International Airport (RTB) - through San Salvador, El Salvador - from New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston and Washington, DC. The new routes start November 15.

One-stop flights, three times per week to the tropical island paradise will also be available from Chicago (beginning November 15) and Orlando (beginning November 1).

The new TACA flights complement the non-stop service already available to Roatan from Houston (Continental), Miami (TACA), Atlanta (Delta) and Newark, NJ (Continental). Already a popular stop on cruise itineraries, the increased air service ideally positions Roatan as the next great Caribbean golf destination.

"These new routes will allow visitors from all corners of the U.S. to experience Roatan's unmatched natural beauty and Pristine Bay's abundant luxury amenities," says Mario Toriello, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Pristine Bay Resort. "The announcement comes at a perfect time, as our golf course and first phase of villas are nearing completion."

The Black Pearl is Roatan's first golf course; nine holes will be ready for play by November, and 18 by January. Measuring 7,157 yards from the back tees, it features 14 holes with ocean views and a Dye-signature, island-green par 3 as it snakes through the island's foothills.

Pristine Bay's real estate sales continue at a brisk clip. Lots start at $230,000 and range up to $700,000. Two-, three-, and four-bedroom villas are priced from $600,000 to $1 million, while condominiums range from $348,000 to $700,000.

Perfect for retirees or second-home owners, Roatan has exceptionally favorable property and tax laws for foreigners. They can own up to three-quarters of an acre and Pristine Bay offers all-important title insurance. Property taxes are approximately $1.30 for every $1,000 of assessed value and there are no income tax, sales tax or import duties.
