Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

El mejor servicio, estuvimos muy contentos. Todo el staff de Pantalasa es increíble y el barco muy acogedor, limpio y en muy buen estado. A pesar de ser mi primera vez navegando y tener un poco de miedo, el capitán nos explicaba todo con detalle y me sentí muy segura en todo momento. Las islas de San Blas son hermosas y sin duda regresaré a repetir la experiencia con ellos mismos. Súper recomendable.

Sinceramente sigo sin palabras para expresar todas las vivencias y emociones que tuvimos durante nuestra estancia de 5 días y 4 noches con nuestros ya amigos Nacho y Judit de Pantalasa! Todo lo que pueda decir sobre ellos y su velero será poco. Confirmo que todos los comentarios favorables que aquí se hacen sobre ellos y la experiencia, son totalmente verídicos. Nacho y Judit son de esas personas que las conoces y desde el minuto uno sabes que formarán parte de tu vida para siempre! El velero es precioso, dispone de todas las comodidades, está súper limpio y es perfecto para todo tipo de viajeros, familias con niños, personas de todas las edades, grupos de amigos, parejas, etc. Las comidas son todas exquisitas, es impresionante las recetas que se sacan ambos de la manga en la mini cocina de la que disponen. San Blas en sí es toda una maravilla, lo que yo defino como paraíso! Mires a donde mires, sea la hora que sea, siempre ves algo que te enamora. Si a eso le sumas unos anfitriones que cambian todos los planes por darte el capricho de visitar una isla específica por la que estás pasando en ese momento, pues ya te quedas sin palabras! Además tuvimos la gran suerte de que durante una tarde nos acogiera una familia Kuna en su isla. Otra experiencia inolvidable que agradeceré a Nacho y Judit toda la vida! Que familia tan amable y acogedora! Entre charlas, risas, bailes, compras, cocos y cigarros se nos echó la noche encima, jajajaja Un día perfecto! A todas las personas que se están planteando reservar con Pantalasa que no lo duden ni por un segundo. Puedo asegurar que es de las mejores experiencias que se pueden vivir. Te lo ponen todo fácil desde el primer contacto, resuelven todas las dudas y son amables en todo momento. De las 5 personas que estuvimos con ellos, ninguna habíamos estado antes en un velero, por lo que era todo nuevo para nosotras y lógicamente íbamos con nuestras dudas y miedos. Después de esta experiencia solo pensamos en cómo y cuándo volver a repetir! Creo que con esto ya está todo dicho :) Aprovecho para mandar un besazo enorme a Nacho y Judit! Os quiero y ya sabéis que en Ourense tenéis a una amiga esperándoos. Hasta pronto!

Sinceramente, los que nos hemos quedado sin palabras somos nosotros. Muchísimas gracias por tomarte el tiempo de escribir estas líneas y por tu generosidad y entusiasmo. Fue un gran placer conoceros y compartir con vosotras tan buenos momentos, risas y conversaciones. Muchas gracias también por vuestra amabilidad y trato tan respetuoso con la familia Kuna que nos acogió en su islita. Sin duda, este es uno de los privilegios de este archipiélago, no sólo su belleza sino la gente que lo habita. Aquí estamos para cuando queráis escaparos, quedan todavía un montón de islas para enseñaros. Hasta siempre!

We did 4 nights and 5 days with Judit and Nacho around the San Blas islands and had the most incredible time. They are very experienced sailors and we felt safe the entire time. They have been sailing around the San Blas islands for years so know the best and most remote islands to take you to. It was an epic experience and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend sailing with them. They are lovely people and deserve the business! When I researched there were lots of companies offering boats with many other people on them, whereas we were a group of 4 and had the boat to ourselves. Sail with Panthalasa!!

What a wonderful experience!!! We decided to spend 8 nights sailing in San Blas with our family, and we were very lucky to be in this boat. Judit and Ignacio are very professional, very kind, and they always make sure that everything is perfect. They always choose the best islands to visit, the perfect spots to snorkel and they make their home our home. San Blas is a beautiful place, and still very authentic. Is not everyday that you can meet a real indigenous tribe: the Kuna Yala. This really was a great experience for our children and for us! Can´t wait to come back!

A beautiful location and beautiful hosts made this the perfect vacation. We spent five nights on the Pantalasa. Judit and Ignacio helped us feel immediately at home. We shared incredible food, great talks, music, and laughter. We took this trip to learn more about molas and how they are made. Fortunately for us, Judit and Ignacio have many friends in the Guna Yala communities and were able to have two incredible mola artists visit and chat with us. We snorkeled most days. Although we normally prefer to scuba dive, it is not allowed in San Blas. To our surprise, we saw more fish and coral than we usually see diving. Two of us often get seasick but not on this trip. After only five days we consider Judit and Ignacio to be dear friends and we hope to sail with them again.

Where do I start! When my husband suggested we go sailing while on our trip to Panama with our 21 and 17 year old daughters I was more than hesitant. We have never been sailing, let alone with 2 complete strangers. I thought this could be amazing or really, really, really bad! Also, I do get seasick and that was a major concern of mine. We sailed with Judit and Nacho for 2 days in December, 2017 and it was amazing! My only regret is that we didn’t book a longer sailing trip! I think you really need at least 3 days. All of us were very sad we had to leave. We felt an instant connection with Judit and Nacho. They were so kind and made us feel so comfortable in their home. They spent so much time explaining the islands and the Kuna Indians who live there. There was a mutual respect between Judit and Nacho and the Kuna Indians and you could tell they had a genuine friendship and relationship with each other. Judit took us to visit a Kuna village, introduced us to a lot of people, and even took us to the baker’s shop where she bought vegetables and delicious bread made with coconut water. Judit and Nacho were great cooks! My husband, who doesn’t normally eat seafood, ate every bite. Their cooking even inspired me to buy a Mediterranean cookbook when I got back home. Everything was fresh and delicious, prepared from a tiny kitchen. One of my absolute favorite parts of the trip was just being with our girls totally isolated and disconnected from everything (no internet, cell phones, social media). We haven’t spent that much time with each other without distractions in years and it was invaluable! Judit and Nacho are from Spain and we all loved spending time with them and learning more about their country and culture. We now consider them friends and hope our paths cross again one day.! If you have the opportunity to sail the San Blas islands our family highly recommends Pantalasa sailing!!! (FYI- the car ride and water taxi to the sailboat is an adventure in itself. I am very thankful that I wore a seasickness patch for that part of the trip even if I didn’t need it on the sailboat. Also, I had a lot of questions before we left home and Judit always responded right away to all of my emails). We miss Judit and Nacho!!!!! The beautiful islands were a bonus!

Dear Becky, Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. We really appreciate it! It has been our pleasure to meet you and your family and we are grateful for your kindness, enthusiasm and also for taking such good care of our boat. We had the same feeling when you left: it has definitely been too short. We would have loved to spend more time together to take you to many of our favorite islands and anchorages. It was gratifying to see your girls curiosity and interest in the Kuna people and their traditions. We look forward to getting together in the near future for more fun and adventures!

If you are looking for an unbelievable Caribbean vacation, look no further and book a trip to San Blas with Judit and Ignacio aboard Pantalasa. We had an unforgettable time. We are still undecided on what was the best part of our trip; the unique islands of San Blas, sailing from island to island, or the delightful company of our hosts Ignacio and Judit. These guys go out of their ways to make your stay on board easy and fun. They are extremely well-organized, take care of you at all times, respect your privacy, and cook fresh and delicious recipes. During our four night trip, Ignacio and Judit took us to four different spots in the San Blas archipelago. When you thought you had seen the most beautiful, picture-perfect Caribbean island, there would always be yet another one even more impressive. Just astonishing - the white sands, the palm trees, the pristine waters, the amazing coral reefs the beauty and peace of it all. San Blas is a truly genuine spot in the Caribbean. One of the last places - if not the last- where the developed world has been respectful with its people and natural environment. Ignacio and Judit know well the kuna community, and you can easily tell that the kuna people love to have them in their islands. Judit and Ignacio also know the underwater extremely well - thanks to their guidance we were able to see all sorts of amazing fish, multi-colored corals, rays, and we could even spot a group of dolphins as we were having breakfast one morning! After so many years in San Blas, our hosts know the islands as if they were their hometown, and know the best spots to snorkel, to sunbathe, to swim in your own private Caribbean island, to interact with the local communities, or to just relax away from everything and everyone. Judit and Ignacio love their boat, a comfortable and elegant goleta, which is clean and very well-kept, a joy to sail on. Do not think it twice. We felt in love with Pantalasa sailing, and we are sure you will, too!

Estuvimos sólo 3 días maravillosos en este velero con sus dos anfitriones que no pueden ser más hospitalarios y encantadores. El lugar te deja sin palabras pues como dicen algunos en sus opiniones es de los poquitos lugares que quedan en nuestro contaminado mundo donde sus habitantes respetan su entorno y aún no "han vendido" su forma de vivir. No hay hoteles en los centenares de islotes, sólo cabañas que regentan los lugareños. Aunque ya se va notando que camina hacia un cambio ( al final el dinero y el consumo lo pueden todo) cuando llegas admiras tanta belleza, sientes tanta paz en sus aguas, el entorno es de postal. Puede parecer ( si no se tiene costumbre ) que vivir en un velero durante muchos días puede resultar incómodo pero la verdad es que Judit y Nacho como por arte de magia, borran las incomodidades y hacen la estancia nada aburrida y muy especial. Los momentos de las comidas son también esperados pues siempre sorprenden, ya nos gustaría saborear platos tan ricos y únicos en alguno de los restaurantes que onocemos. Y los ratos de ocio con ellos son un verdadero placer. Yo que soy un poco miedosa por lo que me pueda encontrar bajo las aguas, en ningún momento tuve dudas pues ellos están siempre ahí y te hacen sentir seguro. No hay momentos de aburrimiento, hay momentos de paz He tenido mucha suerte hasta el momento y he podido viajar por muchos rincones del planeta y esta fue una experiencia tan placentera que estamos planeando repetir pero esta vez durante una semana ( 3 días es poco para profundizar con la cultura Kuna) y sin duda en el Pantalasa con Judit y Nacho. Si viajáis a Panamá tenéis que visitar el paraiso Kuna sin dudar ( a no ser que quieras hacer surf ) 😉

A San Blas se llega fácilmente, en unas dos horas de Panama City en taxi compartido, pero aún es un lugar incontaminado por el turismo masivo, en donde sobrevive la cultura ancestral de los Kuna en unas 360 islitas de arena blanca y cocoteros, esparcidas en un mar turquesa protegido por barreras coralinas: es un verdadero Paraíso que deben apurarse a conocer, antes de que su extrema belleza lo vuelva popular. Si de conocer a islas se trata, no hay mejor opción que un barco; y tratándose de barcos, ¡no veo como se pueda mejorar Pantalasa! Judit e Ignacio son los afortunados propietarios de una bellisima goleta, que mantienen impecable y con mucho estilo, no he visto nada de más bonito entre los catamaranes y veleros que surcan las aguas del archipiélago. Es bellisima especialmente cuando despliega sus velas y procede bajo el mando experto de Ignacio, que lleva una vida veleando en "todos los mares" (como el nombre Pantalasa sugiere), chiflando y cantando al son de refinada música y aires de ópera. Un placer para todos los sentidos, ya que al momento de la comida los anfitriones logran hacer milagros en la cocineta, y aún con una variedad limitada de ingredientes preparan alimentos deliciosos y siempre diferentes, nada banales, acompañados por vinos de marca. Cada comida con Judit e Ignacio es un verdadero placer, que luego se extiende en el sobremesa entre pláticas cultas y de mucho interés, en las que revelan todo lo que han aprendido de tanto viajar y de las personas que los acompañaron en sus travesías. Yo y mi pareja nunca habíamos estado en velero, y teníamos alguna preocupación por los espacios reducidos, pero en Pantalasa se ofrece mucho confort, el velero es grande y pulcro, no hace falta nada para disfrutar y abrirse a nuevas experiencias, como el placer de enjabonarse en la popa, clavarse al mar para enjuagarse, y luego quitarse la sal con agua dulce... Los días pasan rápido (demasiado rápido...) entre las refinadas comidas, las ricas pláticas, el navegar en un lugar tan bonito, desembarcar en islas prácticamente desiertas (por lo general tan solo habitadas por la amigable familia Kuna que las cuida), descansar en playas de arena blanca inmaculadas, nadar en el mar cristalino surcado de estrellas coloradas que llegan hasta la orilla, jugar con los niños nativos y gozar de los maravillosos colores del atardecer con un rico aperitivo. Si esto es lo básico, Judit te puede llevar casi de la mano a snorkelear en arrecifes incontaminados, ayudándote a visualizar langostas escondidas, escuelas de calamares y solitarias rayas, entre corales magníficos, con una visibilidad increíble; es posible aprovechar de un kayak inflable para conocer más de cerca el litoral; y si gusta, están los Kuna con sus tradiciones y artesanía, gente que nunca te molesta, y que siempre está disponible para platicar contigo y mostrarte como viven, en simbiosis con las islas. En definitiva, San Blas es un Paraíso, y conocerlo con Judit e Ignacio ha sido un gran privilegio. Esperamos poder volver pronto, para profundizar una relación que pinta poderse transformar en una verdadera amistad. Gracias por todo, y por tantos apapachos!

Our family had a magical time with Judit and Ignacio on their sailboat. Not only was the setting (San Blas Islands) spectacular, but our hosts could not have been better. I was so impressed by their knowledge of the region as well as their respect for the Guna Yala people and culture. Our daughters (9 and 10 years old) immediately felt comfortable with Judit and Ignacio, who are so kind, accommodating, easy to be around, responsible and fun! The sailboat is impeccably maintained, comfortable and surprisingly spacious. The food (a lot of fresh seafood) was delicious!! I took home several new recipes they shared. My one and only complaint (of which Judit predicted) is that we didn't stay longer. We stayed 2 nights, as we were trying to see as much of Panama as we could in one week. It is worth finding the time and money to stay longer, if it is at all possible. We couldn't have asked for more from this experience! We miss you Judit and Ignacio, and we look forward to another stay with you at some point in the future!
