Our Story & Our Team
Kim and Brett started Tropical Vibes because they believe that there is something really magical about the tropics. Tropical destinations draw tens of millions of visitors each year because of the regions’ rich and varied history, culture, and culinary delights. And, like us, many people are simply drawn to the warm sun, beautiful beaches, and blue water.
That's why we started Tropical Vibes. To build a community of like-minded people who also have a passion and love for all things tropical. Granted, we may only get to enjoy the tropics a few weeks each year, but we always come away with a sense of peace and an even stronger desire to come back to those places we love.
