Dear Maribel and Carlos,

As you found out, even though Carlos suspected it, I was hesitant to come to the BVI since I had never done anything like this before and was nervous about how I would fit in. Your gracious hospitality and reassuring calmness put me right at ease and truly this was a wonderful experience that I would like to do again. Probably my most fond memory will be getting to know the both of you, hearing of some of your grand adventures and traveling insights. 
Thank you for making our "mid-pandemic" charter the best it could be. The service was top notch, the food was five stars and outstanding and the company most enjoyable.
Con toda mi gratitud y deseo por las mejores bendiciones de Dios!!

Dear Maribel and Carlos,

What a marvelous trip this has been! I really had no idea what to expect. This trip was planned as a celebration of my 50th birthday and I wasn't in the loop, so to speak. Add to that all the ever changing Covid regulations and I was not enthusiastic. 
That being said...
Once I was on the ALIZE, in your capable hands, I was at HOME. The anxiety and apprehension...GONE!!
I was completely relaxed and my attitude shifted immediately. Thank you both so much for allowing us to share your home for these eight days. I was not disappointed about not being able to go on land due to the late Covid test results. I really am happiest when I'm with my sister. She's my best friend. So I would have to say the whole trip was a SUCCESS!! We loved your cooking, Maribel. Every meal was a triumph! Carlos, your stories: so fabulous. Thank you for a safe and memorable experience. The BVI is beautiful but a trip with you two, even on swamp, would be worth it! I hope this is the first of several trips together.

Dezra and Joel H.

Dear Maribel and Carlos,

This has been the most amazing, relaxing, beautiful vacation Winslow and I have done together. This was our first sailing trip and it is everything and way more than what we hoped for. You two are such precious, loving and wise people and I feel like I have a new favorite aunt and uncle in my life.
I have felt the happiest I have been in a long time and you two have such positive bright uplifting energy it's so contagious and so healing to be around. Thank you for following your dream and sharing your passion for living in the water, in the flow, with hearts open engaging the moment with us. I will be thinking about the gentle rocking of the ocean in my meditation and the joy and peace of this trip for so long. Highlights include Maribel's amazing food! Dancing on the bow, but most of all, feeling so safe and welcome, and free to be myself in a way I rarely feel with strangers. You two feel like family to me now. 
Love you both.
