Throughout my years of visiting San Pedro, my Captain was always Luz Guerrero, docked at the Holiday House. I an sorry to report he has passed away and I send my prayers to his wonderful wife and family. If any of you know of him or his family please send your prayers & thoughts to his family.
I have so many marvelous memories of fishing, snorkeling, shelling, eating and laughing with Mr. Luz and his family that I can not begin to tell them. His shore lunches were awesome, and the best potatoes I ever had were made the old way using the beautiful caribbean water to cook them. We never came back without catching something, and what fish we didn't eat he would give to people he knew needed food. What a wonderful friend and teacher. I know how to find the sardines, catch them & use them for bait. After we had caught our bait Luz would say " Now our fishing is almost done" - with the right bait & place fish were no problem to hook. I'll probably start a fight, but Mrs. Guerrero makes the best Key Lime Pie on the Island (Also chocolate Cake!!)! I always thought they should have an annual Key Lime Pie festival - there are so many great recipes!
So, if any of you have known Captain Luz, you know how wonderful a person he was to be with. Much Love and Prayers to all of his family, Peg

I feel so sad. On my very first trip to San Pedro in 1996 we went fishing with Luz (my first time fishing)-and we had the most amazingly awesome day, from catching the sardines to the beachside lunch. I was sick at the time and he took care of me as if I was his daughter. He took his knife and cut a coconut in half, and gave me the juice to drink. He patiently showed me how to catch my first fish, and showed me how to filet, when he made us lunch. I thought I was in paradise. My friend Corinne was with me, he said he has a daughter with the same name, and we had a connection. I have visited San Pedro a half dozen times since then, even lived there in 1997-98. I am convinced that his kindness and patience played a key role in me wanting to know more of the island and its people. It was just a simple day of fishing and a beach b-b-q, but it was a magical day for me. I wish love and peace to his family.
