Over our first year as the proud owners of a Roatan Vacation rental, Mary and I have received more than 1,000 inquiries. As a result, we spend a fair bit of time answering questions from prospective guests. So we thought it might be helpful to post answers to the most common of these questions.

Is Roatan Safe?
If you own or run a business that depends on Roatan tourism, this is the one question you don't want to have to answer. It's a loaded question. And there is no quick, pithy answer. At least, there is no quick, pithy accurate answer.

As many of you have read, while we own a Roatan vacation rental, Mary and I live year round in the greater Boston area with our four children aged 16 to 10. So the horrific events at Monday's Boston Marathon hit very close to home in every sense of the phrase. We are so profoundly saddened by the stream of news describing the aftermath and implications for those impacted by the bombing.

When we bought Coral Vista 1 early last year, Mary and I decided that we wanted to reinvest some of the rental proceeds in Roatan. So on our annual Roatan vacation last summer, we asked Mark Flanagan from Roatan Life Vacation Rentals, the company that manages our property and takes care of our guests, to take us around to some local charities so we could learn more about them. We wanted to understand what they did, how they worked and, importantly, we wanted to be comfortable that our donations would actually find their way to the people of Roatan.

"You stand where you sit."
Somebody famous said that (or must have). By the way, please tell me if you know who it was...
