    96: Roatan, Honduras Live Podcast from the Island

    Watch the episode filmed in Roatan, Honduras - https://youtu.be/jzJ8mCMQ7ks

    Roatan is a Caribbean island off the northern coast of Honduras as part of the Bay Islands. It is home to the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System, the second-largest reef system in the world which makes for great scuba, snorkeling, boat trips, and calm sandy beaches.

    Our trip was full of adventure as we made sure to take advantage of everything that was offered. The amazing people of Roatan make sure you feel welcome and loved. With their great hospitality and eagerness to show you all aspects of the island, it is easy to fall in love with the island life.

    Getting to Roatan from Northern America is a breeze with easy connecting flights, simple to book Airbnbs, and use of the US dollar. Grocery stores, pharmacies, and ATMs are easy to find.

    Enjoy the many towns of Roatan that make it unique: Sandy Bay, West End, West Bay, French Harbour, Coxen Hole, Dixon's Cove, Flower's Bay, The East End.

    Pack light, enjoy the sun, go deep-sea fishing, and party on a yacht!

    Roatan has it all.

    95: Live from Miami Beach, Florida

    We just had a great week in Miami Beach, Florida soaking up the sun, going out to restaurants and bars, and enjoying the freedoms of travel. We felt like everything was extremely safe and people were taking the right precautions. I had the chance to connect with my buddy Chris Gayle, met heavyweight champ Tyson Fury, and connected with an old friend of Nikki. The cars and yachts are out of control on South Beach and it was so much fun to them check out. I also got a great haircut in Little Havana. Listen in to this podcast to hear all of the highlights of what it is like to vacation in Miami during these odd times.
