Hello Rodolfo,

I wanted you to know how very very much I appreciate all your help on planning a vacation for my family of 26 persons, it was so easy to get organized with your company. I was a little nervous in booking it over the Internet but I need not have worried, as your organization and service were excellent.
we want to come back there again, we would also like to visit Panama or Nicaragua as you suggested.
We will definitely book our vacation with you!!

Thanks,

Neil Heyer
