Welcome to Tropikaia, my name’s Billy.
Yes, I’m a real person… unlike so many fictional website characters out there.
Well, where do I start?
My obsession with tropical destinations started at a young age.
My family would travel to Caribbean destinations when I was on my school breaks.
I’ve traveled to…
- Turks & Caicos
- St. Martin
- St Thomas
You can clearly see my love for the beach in the photo below 😂
As I got older, we started taking fewer family vacations, but I still had a burning desire to travel.
Around high school, I started the Instagram accounts…
It was my way of mentally traveling to these tropical destinations.
Running those Instagram accounts felt repetitive, and I didn’t feel like I was helping anyone.
So I decided to stop and give them away. I don’t run those accounts anymore.
But I still loved tropical destinations and built a network of incredible tropical travelers, which got me thinking…
Why don’t I create a unique resource for tropical destinations?
As a result, I started Tropikaia.
I still haven’t been to a lot of the tropical destinations on my bucket list (working on it)
But I know quite a few people that have, for example…
My good friend, Benjamin Bryant whose been to over 15 Maldives resorts.
So, I partnered up with him and created this ultimate Maldives travel guide.
My point is…
If I can’t travel to a certain tropical destination, I collab with others that have actually been there.
I don’t want Tropikaia to be another travel website.
I want it to be a helpful and unique resource on tropical destinations.
Our Best Work
