An amazing trip! Relaxation and adventure at its best. Booking the trip with Catamaran Adventures was great. They quickly answered all questions and made the process easy. The Mambo Diablo catamaran was very comfortable for our group of 6. Each cabin was roomy and private.

We chartered the Mambo Diablo to sail around the San Blas islands. The boat was great and the captain Javier and co-captain Valentina could not have been nicer. Both spoke good English (by my standards) and really made our trip amazing. From the moment we stepped on the boat

My friends and I just got back from sailing the San Blas islands - absolutely amazing experience. It was my first time on a sailing trip but certainly not the last. Javier and Valentina were spectacular hosts. They were always there when we needed something but you would not

The San Blas Islands are fabulous - warm turquoise waters, 400 small tropical islands, over half uninhabited, the wonderful Kuna Yala people. The San Blas islands are a real getaway. Our Catamaran Adventure was not what we expected though. First of all the boat we reserved

Hello and thank you for your comments, it really helps us improve our service. I will just offer our perspective on your complaints about the service because I think you left out some important facts: - Yes, the original boat had an engine failure, you didn´t mention we paid you back $850 for transferring you to another charter company (look for "Catamaran Experience", El Porvenir on Trip Advisor), even though it was Christmas holidays, and everything in San Blas is completely booked, we managed to find a very similar boat for you. None of the San Blas company would have done that, some would not even return your money. The simple way for us was to return you your money, instead we managed to get an almost brand new catamaran for you from another catamaran company. We dealt with the issue according to our quality standards, this is not a house, its a boat, and boats break down, we were ultimately responsible for that and so we dealt with the issue the best way. - Concerning the driver, you have to understand that we don´t do transfers, it is not our job and its never included in our prices, we suggest a driver and you are the one to decide if you want to book with him, you can find many on the internet if you like. The fact is that you also have to pay directly to him the fee. The driver is still waiting for your apology for been as he says "rude to him" not that I can say the same, it is just what he has commented to me. He said you didn´t pay for the ride and that your attitude towards him was totally unrespectfull at all times, that is what he has said to me, I cannot comment on that because I was not there to see what happened, he did call me and sounded very stressed for the situation you caused. To make sure nothing else happens, we have decided to review our collaboration with this driver and are currently surveying closely his work. - We, as all charter companies, don´t encourage getting drunk on board, mostly because it can be very uncomfortable for all the people on board, normal quantity of alcohol to be consumed responsibly is half a bottle of wine and 2 beers a day. I think you were offered that, but as I said you were transferred to another charter company and they have their own standards. - About the captain and cook from the other company "Catamaran Experience", in the 3 years I have known them , we have not heard of any issues, in fact they are considered to be the typical happy couple that enjoy their life and work in Paradise. We apologize for any inconvenience we have caused you, as you can see in our Trip Advisor page we offer the best holidays in San Blas and we always try to accommodate to the need of passengers. If you decide for some reason to come back we can work out a discount for you :) Best regards, Catamaran Adventures San Blas
