We had our charter in the Boca del toro area of Panama. John and Julie worked with us to plan our stay aboard the yacht. It was really all inclusive. We ate till we were stuffed with excellent homemade foods, snorkeled all the best spots in the area, walked the beaches, and were rocked to sleep at night by the gentle motion of the ship. We have never chartered a ship before, but now we are true believers. DO IT.
