In the last podcast I talked about some of the things we did in Doral, most of it in near proximity to Provident Blue Hotel. We used it as a base and went to the shopping centres, South Beach and other areas we visited.

We had easy access to South Beach and the major shopping centers of Miami, and walking distance to some of the best restaurants you will ever dine in. It really was a perfect stay.

Well, for about the 10th time I did go back, this time mostly for golf, but with a bit of touring as well. It’s a fascinating country with a people culture all its own. On this podcast you’ll hear from some of the people who help make it a great country.
From the moment we are greeted as the float plane landed at the lodge until we left four days later we experienced hospitality as good as you will find at any major resort. The staff were amazing. The shore lunches were a treat. And the stories and laugh will stick with us forever.
