Our Story

Paula and Ian have shared passions for social justice, travel, adventure and connecting with new people. Over the course of their travels, “Where are you guys from?”, is a frequent question, so we’ll answer it here: She was born in Brazil, he was born in Sri Lanka, they grew up and met in Canada, got married in the Dominican Republic, lived and worked in El Salvador for 2 years and are currently based on the beautiful island of Roatan, Honduras waiting to host you!

They visited Roatan for the first time in August 2015 and fell in love [with Roatan]. One and a half years later, one of their lifelong dreams came true: they purchased “La Casa Rara” and transformed it into the HighPoint!

Combined, they have lived in 8 countries, volunteered in 6 and traveled to 53. They have met many wonderful, interesting people along the way and the HighPoint is their way of encouraging a life of risk taking and adventure!
