Where You Will Lay Your Head Part 1: Accommodation Choices & Roughing It In the Tropics

We have sequenced our posts to follow the sequence of events as they happen on your first trip. This is, of course, not your preferred timeline for making reservations.

3. Condo, Guest House
4. Time Share
5. Resort
6. Villa Rental
