This is our third time at Marina Paraiso, before in 2012 and 2013. The island is a fun place to spend time. Broad comfortable sidewalks everywhere invite long walks and the restaurants are so good and reasonably priced that we eat out constantly. Having Uli & Thomas next door again is wonderful. And then Larry & Christine arrived for a week before we fly to Cuba on 4/7 and the 6 of us are hanging out together until then. It will be difficult to say good-bye to Uli and Thomas on Friday after 4 years cruising together out of the Rio Dulce (and our visit to them in Germany). They are heading up to Florida to cruise there and in the Bahamas over the next few years. And we will sail back to the Rio Dulce. But our paths will cross again for sure - the sooner the better!
