People take vacations for a variety of reasons, but a common theme is to relax, unwind and take a break from the realities of the day-to-day. And, a big part of that break from the real world is the precious opportunity to spend some quality time with friends and family. Of course, no vacation would be complete without activities, such as dining out or simply walking around. But there is nothing like relaxing together, and that can be where the hotel and resort atmosphere is lacking: a place to reconnect with your family or friends.

As the old Harry Chapin song "Cats in the Cradle" laments, the irony of working so hard while you raise your kids is that by the time you're ready to slow down and spend time with them as adults, they are off working hard to raise their own. This precious time goes fast, and the opportunity to get together and enjoy one another's company is rare.
Taking a special vacation together is a great way to find that time and create lasting memories as a family. But there's a problem: Vacationing with the whole family isn't always an easy feat. With two grandparents, a couple of kids, their spouses and the grandchildren, you quickly have a huge group that few hotels and resorts can comfortably or affordably accommodate. Since the point of the vacation is to be together, where can you vacation as a family and stay connected the entire time?

It's a bird. It's a plane. It's an RC Drone with a Hero Pro HD Camera attached.
I had the pleasure this past Saturday of working with a young man from the Honduran mainland named Jose Servillon who shoots aerial footage for a variety of industries using an industrial strength RC helicopter.

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.

It has become quite fashionable of late to have a bucket list. That is the list of activities and experiences you must complete before "kicking the bucket". These lists often include things like sky-diving, trekking in Nepal, running a marathon, driving on the Autobahn, seeing the Mona Lisa in person... You get the idea: something out of the ordinary that you would really like to do someday, but may only get to do once in your life like...

If you are considering planning a vacation to Roatan but have a lot of questions and don't really know where to start, this post is for you.
Over the time we have owned our Roatan vacation rental homes (Coral Vista 1 in West End and our new Pristine Bay Beach Villa), we have definitely noticed a pattern in the questions we're asked as people make their plans.

When Mary and I first visited Roatan in 2011, we stayed at Coral Vista Villas in West End. As I wrote in an earlier post, we loved the place so much, we bought it. During our week there, we did a lot of diving, checked out several restaurants and generally fell in love with the West End. One day, though, in between our morning dive and happy hour at Sundowners, we took a ride up the island about 40 minutes away to check out this new development called Pristine Bay.

There's a lot to love about owning a vacation home on Roatan. We are so fortunate to have a place we can go that's on a beach overlooking the Caribbean in a cool little town - even if we only get there once a year for a week. The rest of the time, we get to share it with people from all over the world who visit Roatan to relax, escape and explore. That is what's so great about owning a vacation home on Roatan.
