What is Exploring Roatan’s story?
Exploring Roatan was conceived during a chance meeting between a permanent Island resident, Burlee Zaldivar and an island visitor. The visitor told his story of how frustrating it was for he and his expat friends who were trying to find property, furnish the homes they bought and find service businesses they could trust. The Yellow Page directories that existed were incomplete and outdated. This made every shopping trip a day long project. Island visitors are here to play and relax. They have no time or patience to drive around and rely on word of mouth to find what they are looking for.
Until the advent of exploringroatan.com there wasn’t a comprehensive directory or even a map that allowed business owners to really tell their story. All of that has changed. Today, businesses can explain who they are, show what products and services they carry, offer specials and do it all with pictures and video.
Exploring Roatan’s Founder & CEO, Ms. Burlee Zaldivar has raised investment capital, hired an experienced international group of managers, designers, programmers, copywriters, trainers and marketers to build, maintain and support every business. The technical and management team has years of experience in working with directories and one on one with small to medium size businesses in North America, Asia and Europe.
