Current Situation


Guanaja Hills is a project in Honduras that combines tourism and local development. It is an intentional community of freedom-oriented individuals who are looking for a new home outside of Europe. To achieve this in a sustainable way, a resort town attractive to overseas tourists is set to be built, fostering permanent connections between Guanaja and the rest of the world.

The project is located on the island of Guanaja, three miles away from the main town and the airport, directly on the two-mile-long “Long Reef”.

Legal Status

Guanaja Hills was originally indented to become a Zone for Employment and Economic Development (ZEDE). However, before the approval process could be completed, the newly elected Honduran government had repealed the ZEDE law. This means that only the currently operational ZEDEs will remain open and no new ZEDE can be created.

At the moment, the project is part of a tourist special zone on Guanaja island, which allows it to be temporarily exempted from property tax.

Current Situation

As of mid-2023, fifteen buildings and the accompanying basic infrastructure are already completed in Guanaja Hills and more are under construction. Guanaja Hills’ current resident population includes about 25 resident-workers, houseowners, short and long-term guests.

Operational energy independence, utilizing solar power, has already been achieved. Two tiny marinas and docks are established.

The next step will be the construction of villas for new residents.


Get Involved

Guanaja Hills is looking for liberty-loving friends to join them in building a new home on a beautiful tropical island.
