My girlfriend and I stayed with Carlos on his sailboat for 2 days and 2 nights. We were blown away by the beauty and uniqueness of San Blas and we were so happy to experience all this on a boat. On the one hand having the comfort staying on a beautiful yacht and on the other hand having the possibility to see couple of different magical islands was OUTSTANDING. The service of Carlos was excellent. He is a great cook and prepared for every lunch and dinner fresh fish, lobster, crab or other seafood available in the waters of San Blas. He is also very knowledgeable about San Blas and the Kunas and makes everything possible for you to have an unforgettable time. So visit Calors on his boat before San Blas will be flooded in the next 15-20 years. Thank you a million times.

Sailing this archipelago is a perfect escape. Doing yoga on deserted beaches was truly a peaceful experience. Even though I did this trip alone, I was able to build great relationships with all the people onboard. I ate nutritious meals everyday and came back home feeling so healthy. I felt so relaxed the whole time and looking back, I am so happy that I finally got to see Panama the way I did it. I was able to get a great deal for this trip at intersailclub.com. Definitely would do it again if I get the chance.

Last week we stayed on board of the Carpe Diem with Carlos (and crew). It really was a wonderful experience to sail through San Blas and meeting the Kuna people and experiencing their culture. Each day we sailed to another island to explore the island and the surrounding waters. Carlos asked what we wanted to do each day and gave us all the space to choose whatever we wanted to do on a day. Carlos was available to go along and show some beautiful spots, e.g. to snorkel (diving is strictly prohibited in the area). Furthermore, we ate freshly catched fish and other seafood each day. Which was very well prepared by Carlos and crew. Do not miss out on this experience!

We are a couple in their 30's that got to Carlos (the owner and Capitan of Carpe Diem Sailing yoga Yacht) thru a few friends that did a yoga tour with him a year ago. We stayed with Carlos for 8 amazing days! During these days he took us around the most beautiful islands in San Blass area. Carlos is a very special person that made us feel like we are old friends that are having a Cruz together. He is the best chef and cooked us 3 fresh meals a day (pancakes, eggs, fresh fish or lobsters, fruits etc'). Carlos took us snorkeling in the best reefs in the area. We saw sharks, turtles, sting rays and much more! On top of him being a super friendly guy he also does a lot for the locals Kuna community! He donates some of his profits to the locals and he hires a Kuna as a second Capitan. Important to know is that the local Kuna's don’t allow doing this charter tours without there approval that most of the boats don’t have. Luckily Carlos is in very good relationship with the locals and he has their approval for the tours. We highly recommend booking the tour with Carlos and his Carpe Diem Yacht!

I too was ripped off from this company promising me the perfect getaway. After paying full for my "vacation of a life time" in which I saved for a long time. It all unraveled at the seams. DO NOT give Eamon ( or his business partner) any deposit let alone a full payment. There is no retreat, there is no guarantee. He will take you're money and then stop all contact with you. If you're reading this after speaking with him, and think "oh he's so sincere, he couldn't do that" , I thought the same thing. SAVE YOU'R MONEY...GO TO ANOTHER RETREAT. There is no amazing journey it is just their own self marketing scam.

Hi Nicola, We also heard Eamon Leonard is not trustworthy. But he doesn't work for us since February 2015. Please, contact us on our official contact adress: info@sailingyoga.com We would like to host you on Carpe Diem. We will discount what Eamon stole you.
