“Thank you so much for the amazing opportunity at Canary Cove. We all very much enjoyed it, especially Julian. He called it “paradise”…it truly was. All the staff were very accommodating and helpful. They made our trip spectacular and the food was simply delicious. Kelly and I, too, have fell in love with Belize as you have. We have made a donation online to the BelizeKids foundation to help with your cause in Belize and helping children gain access to things Julian has at his fingertips. From the whole family, thanks again.”   – A. and family

“Dear Staff, Thank you so much for all that you did this week to make it the most enjoyable week I could possibly have had. Nathalie’s food was always amazing, Gil was the best SCUBA instructor I could have imagined, and Mik and Palma were always making the experience more fun by having a good time. Also, the rest of the staff was always working so hard to make sure everything went well, and that if we needed something they made it happen right away. I will miss you guys as I feel I have made friends with many of you.” Sincerely,  Connor

“Canary Cove! So grateful for numerous unexpected delightful surprises. Many first for me: SCUBA diving (3 times) in the capable and talented hands of Palma; Lionfish kills (3!); swimming with the shrks, rays and Oscar the turtle, green and spotted moray eels, Spiney lobsters, and a rainbow of spectacular reef fish. Relaxing by the pool at the end of the day, watching swallows swoop down and splash in the pool, then shake themselves mid-air. Tossing sardines from the dock to the Frigate birds high above. The good humor and comfort brought to us each day by Nathalie, Mayra, Jaime, Gil, Mike, and Palma—what beautiful souls! Ah, the infectious laughter of Mike! Thank you, thank you, thank you all! We are so lucky and lucky we would be to retain the kindness and care.”   – L.

“We had some quality time on the horizontal here: swimming, snorkeling, sleeping, reading. It has been a week of golden moments, beautiful sunsets, full moon rise, swimming with nurse sharks, watching rays nestle into the sand, and sliding down the slide into the perfect water. Thank you for providing a little bit of heaven.”  – C., R., & crew

“I am very lucky to have had a chance to hang here with all the magic you have created with your team and turtles and all that makes Canary Cove so special.”  – R.
