Sailboat Trips made it possible for us to get a really unique holiday experience. Profesional, kind, quick, cordial. Very, very good service San Blas is an amazing place, and we had the most amazing hosts. We spent two days on the L'Eclectik 2 with Mari and Chris; our first holiday on a boat. We therefore did not quite know what to expect. But no matter how high our expectations would have been, they were exceeded by far! San Blas is a true paradise, fantastic islands, crystal clear water, unspoiled nature and the always smiling Kuna people. But what made our stay really magical was the amazing company of Chris and Marie. They are fantastic hosts, making us feel truly welcome and at home from the very minute we arrived. They are so kind, open and easy to be around, while being the perfect hosts, constantly looking for ways to make our stay unforgettable; ranging from the great food you made to us, the trips to the tiny islands, the night on the beach, our cozy conversations and everything else. Truly unique and memorable. To everybody who get the chance to go, we can only say: Do it! :-)
It all started rather difficult because of a mix-up at the agency that takes care of the watertaxi. We set of for a one hour ride in the watertaxi to end up at an island whith a lot of boats but not our booked catamaran. With limited cover of the cellphone but a lot of help of other boats we managed to get a message from our skipper where he would pick us up.
After these initial troubles we were warmly welcomed by skipper Vincent and hostess Florence on board of their wonderful catamaran Palm Sugar. We lost a couple of hours but the warmness of the welcome made up for the hardship.
Vincent managed to score “langostinas” from a local fisherman and Florence made a perfect dinner with them. It turned out that everything Florence produced in her kitchen was worthy of top rating in any food guide.
Even with the overcast weather we spent two wonderful days on a beautiful boat woth perfect hosts.
We spend 4 beautiful days on the Tango catamaranTango is in very good conditions clean and comfortable. Capitan Peter and chef Lidia are emezing people. Wery nice,friendly and kind. Peter know everythink about San Blas and we think he know all Kuna on the islands. Lidia is best cook i know,like from 5 stars hotels . I m sure we will be back. San Blas islands is one of the most beautiful place on the world. One more time -thx for Sailboattrips ,Peter and Lidia ☀️♂️
We definitely recommend everyone a trip to the Guna Yala islands. It's just paradise. Never saw any islands that compared! Staying on a Catamaran with Exequiel and Stella was awesome! They really made us enjoy every second of our trip! There was plenty of yummy food. Mostly fresh catches from the reefs surrounded by creative inventions from Stella. Our daughter who is usually quite picky loved it too. :) Exequiel always knew what he was doing and took us safely to the most beautiful islands of the area. When we wanted to visit an island he always made it possible. Always providing us with a cooler with cold beers, fruits and whine at the beach. Snorkeling gear was always available, so we could see the whole beauty of the reefs too. There is so much wildlife to see there. Amazing! They also introduced us to local Guna's which was really nice. I could go on for hours pointing out all the good experiences we had. I guess it's best you go and see for yourself. For us the decision is made: we will be back soon! And definitely again with Exequiel, Stelly, Elaine and Peter - keep up the good vibe! :)
I had a wonderful experience with SailboatTrips. I sent an inquiry from the website and from there was contacted by email and WhatsApp by Camila. We discussed the different options (shared or private boat) and prices for each. She sent me pictures, info, and pricing for boats that were available for my dates.
I chose captain Arnaud’s boat for 2 nights and I thoroughly enjoyed my time in San Blas. The food, conversation, relaxing on the boat and beaches was wonderful. Arnaud was a great host. He always made I sure I had enough to eat, drink, and that I was comfortable and having a good time. He made me feel so welcome on his boat that I didn’t want to leave! I would definitely love to go back!
