    I am so glad I stumbled upon this thread. My husband and I will (hopefully) be on the island in February of next year and my son will be about 13 months at that point. We'll be there with my family & I am sure that we will want to go out to dinner at least one night without him and maybe some other excursions during the day. It's good to know that there is someone that can be trusted to watch him on the island. Thank you all for posting your experiences and keep them coming-it will put this mother's mind at ease.

    Mariza is great..

    I was emailing back and forth with Mariza for a trip this coming week with our 14.5 month old son that we had to postpone due to a virus and it dawned on me that I never got a chance to reply to this thread last year.

    We chose to celebrate our sons 6 month birthday with a trip to Aruba last year. I didn't find very much here and on tripadvisor for sitters on the island but this specific thread recommended Mariza. We contacted her by email and she blocked off the days that we would be on the island. She couldn't have been more accomodating for the specific days/hours we needed.

    There is a big difference between a sitter who considers it just another job and a sitter who truly enjoys what they do. Mariza is the latter by far, and that is one of the most important things to us when at home but especially abroad when our son is in unfamiliar surroundings as it is.

    This thread found us Mariza, so even before we left Aruba last year I thought about adding to it, but completely forgot until this (unfortunately postponed) trip.

    From nj, we prefer Aruba or Bahamas due to the flight availability and times... but whenever we are trying to plan a trip it always leans towards Aruba because even though the flight is a little longer, we know that the Bahamas doesn't have Mariza! In fact, before looking up flights or hotels for this trip, I emailed Mariza and made sure she was available.

    If you are sort of "on the fence" about hiring a sitting in aruba, I am more than happy to ease your concerns - send me a private message or (tried to post email but cant because I just registed .. so send me a PM)

    Hopefully we can get down there next month because otherwise it'll have to wait another year and then it won't only be my son anymore!!!
