Internet Marketers Vacations – Destination Isla Roatan
Prior to this trip, I had never heard of Roatan.
Another fun night, and early morning. We hadn’t booked an official excursion, and I was glad because it was cold and rainy, with intervals of sunshine.
We rented a 10 person van, and a guide for the day. What a great way to see the island. We were in charge, we drove, but the guide would answer all of our questions, and tell us where the ‘real inside scoop’ hot spots were.
We did the entire island.
Our tour guides name was Grace – she was so great. If you ever go to Roatan, request her. She is just outside the gates in a white building, or simply rent a car and request her.
We head up the east coast, and ended up at a condo vacation resort. It was a great area, the condos were gorgeous, the area was great too. Would love to buy one – I left my details to see how it works.
Then while we were there, there were 4 women sitting at a table, and they flagged us over frantically. Apparently they had rented a taxi, and the taxi left them, and was not coming back. They were about 30 miles from where there boat docked, and they had to catch a ferry to get aboard. They were on the Norwegian Jewel, which was also on the opposite side of the island to where we were.
So we said we would take them to their boat – we had the space.
We headed back down the coast, and stopped at the monkey farm.
It was so fantastic. We got to hold, hug and feed monkeys. My daughter Celeste was officially in heaven. There were pretty birds there as well, but not as tame as the monkeys were.
Then we continued down, and went to the beach for a while. The kids snorkeled, they said it was fantastic, while we got acquainted with the women and Grace our guide.
There was a tax lawyer, a hair dresser, a real estate agent, and I forgot what the other did. Grace told us how she had no hot water, raised 5 kids, has 6 grand kids, and lives in a shack. By the looks of it – most people did. I can’t imagine taking showers that were cold, from a bucket.
We completed our beach fun, dropped the girls at their ship, and booted it back to the other side of the island to ours. The first horn blow of the ship went, warning us that was the boarding time – and we ran to get on just in time.
There were a few more stragglers behind us, who got stopped and reprimanded for being late, boarded, and then we left. The Norwegian was headed to the same place – Belize.
They took the group photo for the internet marketers, (which we didn’t know about so wasn’t in), had dinner, and the same thing – networking, fun, kids out late, and us all catching up.
The weather had been rough so far, we have high hopes for Belize.
(Although my husband who had already been before said there was nothing there – we would see soon.)
Got to also catch up with Matt Bacak – who we ran into at the monkey park with his 3 kids, and wife too, plus Joel Thierrion (who runs one of our hosting providers.)
Plus made a pile of new friends. Saw Simon Leung, Max Action (Matt Adams), and caught up with Jenny Armato and her husband Paul.
Tomorrow is Belize – pray for sun 🙂
