We had an amazing time on the beautiful sailboat "Nakamal". Dieter and Ay were such gracious and caring hosts for our trip. Dieter, our accomplished captain, has so much experience and time in this area of the world that it made our trip seem effortless. We visited places that were away from the normal crowds and Dieter knew exactly when to arrive and depart, so we missed all of the "day tourists". He was full of interesting stories and was a delight to be around. Also, we can not say enough to fully describe the quality and variety of food that Ay prepared for us everyday. We had so many great dishes (also accompanied by wonderful wines) that we felt spoiled. Our children loved all the food and Ay made sure that everyone had enough food and that all our needs were met. This made our trip so much more enjoyable than we ever imagined. We snorkeled everyday and enjoyed the SUPs that were on the boat ready for use anytime. The thing that resonated the most with my wife and myself was the quality time and PEACE that we had with our children. We have a 13 yr. and 15 yr. old, they are normal, internet connected teens and we worried how the trip would be for them. But, to our amazement, they quickly relaxed into the slow pace of living on a sailboat. We all lounged around together and spent hours laying on the "trampoline" section of the boat reading and playing games together. There is also a ton of room on the front deck of the boat, complete with huge beanbag chairs to pile up and lay around on. This was our favorite area of the boat (and most charters we saw did not utilize this area the way "Nakamal" did). It was a true gift to be able to reconnect with our kids in such a meaningful way. We are all talking about when we can do another trip!
