We have been trying to communicate with them for a week to reserve a boat trip for our upcoming trip to Panama, and they haven't respond to emails, WhatsApp messages, and we even made a reservation through the website, and haven't received any confirmation email with more details to make the payment, as indicated on the website. Not the way to be professional and run a company!

Thank you for your comment on this platform, we appreciate your effort.

When submitting your trip details on our website you will receive a Pre reservation, (not a reservation since we take no funds), which in your case and since it is not a private charter will be confirmed as soon as any of our catamarans has the necessary number of guests to schedule a trip. Most of the catamarans, for obvious reasons, will not sail with only 2 guests on a shared trip thus we cannot confirm right away as you demand.

Private charters do get confirmed within 24 hours.

Regarding your Whatsapp messages we have no record of any of your communications this way so I cannot identify your tries.

Hope you have found a catamaran, if not please get in touch with us on infocharter@catamaranadventures.net and we will do our best to prioritize your pre reservation.

Thank you
Chris

This was the best catamaran trip we have ever had. Javier and his crew were the perfect hosts. The food and the atmosphere were perfect. If you want to come down back to earth you have made this catamaran trip. Each and every day the crew led us to a lonely island where we enjoyed stunning riffs and sunsets. We can absolutely recommended the catamaran tour with this crew.

We (4 adults, 4 kids) had a truly wonderful, amazing time on a three-night overnight trip with Capt. Javi on the "Mambo Diablo", the "Salina" in Catamaran Adventures' fleet. The crew was exceptionally kind, friendly, and respectful. The accommodations are very clean and the boat is in excellent condition. The meals were really delicious- seafood for lunch and dinner, with lots of fresh vegetables; eggs and bread or pancakes for breakfast. It was very, very relaxing. Most days there was an hour of sailing in the morning, and then spending the day near a small island (snorkeling, paddle board, swimming, kayaking, relaxing on the boat, relaxing on the sand, swimming between neighboring islands, etc.). Local Guna Yala residents might approach (by boat, for example) to sell spiny lobster, cheese, pineapples, etc. to the crew; or, they might approach us guests in order to sell their handy crafts. At the end of the day, we sometimes sail another hour in order to be a comfortable, breezy spot for a good nights sleep (as opposed to still, hot air). The sea was calm enough for all of the kids (age 7-11). One thing to note is that it can be pricey to get to San Blas. A private flight might seem expensive, but it's not that much more than hiring a car, and the flight will be much more comfortable and much, much shorter. The reservation specialist at Catamaran Adventures, the pilot, and the pilot & driver to whom they referred us were all very clear and reliable in their communications- for which we remain very grateful- everything and everybody was on time, and in the expected spot. We'd love to do this again!

An unforgettable 5-day trip with Capt. Franco and asst. Tisiana on the "One Way" Catamaran. The service was well beyond our expectations, the boat had everything we could have needed from amenities to adventure toys. The food was superb. We came with our 7 and 10 year old girls. The both cried all the way home when we left. When we reviewed our trip we all agreed that Franco and Tisiana were the main reasons our stay was so unforgettable. They ensured fresh fish for lunch and dinner, they were always happy to help with kayaks/paddle boards, snorkeling, meeting amazing Guna Yala and always seeming to have a smile and passion for their work and sailing.

We also agreed that being in San Blas also was very special. To be in a place largely unspoiled with harmony between nature and living. Absolutely a do-over and highly recommend especially if you are looking to reconnect with family and nature at the same time.

Just came back from a week in San Blas with Javi and his crew. We, four adults and four kids, had the best vacation ever. The crew was just amazing. They showed us some of the most beautiful islands I have ever seen and made delicious food. Fresh fruit, lobster, al kind of fish and sangria
San Blas is an amazing place, so beautiful and peaceful. The water has all nuance of blue and you can see all kind of different fish. We snorkeld every day and saw different type of rays, sharks, turtles, small and big fish, dolphins and even a crocodile.

I give my best recommendation to Javi and his crew and will definitely like to go back one day and live on mambo Diablo ⛵️ San Blas is just fantastic.
