This is our second trip. We had an amazing five days sailing from Belize City to Guatemala. We bounce down the coastline until reaching Rio Dulce. Our first night was near the reef for a beautiful sunset with dinner. The chef prepared some amazing meals. On to Placencia the next day. Placencia is wonderful. The food is good and there is always a local soccer game going on at the fields. Night three was near a small private island near Punta Gorda. The caretaker was super nice and took us on a tour of the island. It once was a really nice hotel. On to the Rio Dulce! The river was incredible. The captain checked us into Guatemala. Thanks so much for all the great story telling Captain. You are the man! After a refreshing swim in the river night four was in a small bay off the river. Super quite really amazing sunsets! Our last night was in Nana Juana marina. Great place with a refreshing pool and fantastic margaritas. Thank you so much! Super amazing vacations! Everyone was so helpful helping us plan our trip. Thanks everyone!
This is my third trip. We have been down with friends, family, and a guys trip and every time it is on the money. We charter yachts all around the world and the service you get on this 50 foot catamaran is unparalleled. The meals on our trip rival of the meals we had on our 150 foot yacht in Greece. Truly amazing service by the chef. The captain was unbelievably professional and knowledgeable about everything to do with Sailing. These people love their job and it shows. I’m not sure anything could’ve been done better. We will be back!
Our crew exceeded our expectations day by day. We dined like royals, explored like Columbus, swam like mermaids. The ship felt like a 5 star accommodation with views like in paradise. All in all, a vacation of a lifetime. Thank you so much for everything.
