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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Ale and Lorenzo represent everything you want for the best vacation: they know the best locations, Ale is the best cook in the Caribbean and this couple is the best company during the trip. The minute you get onboard, Ale and Llorenç make you feel at home. One of the best vacations we have ever had. We are definitely going back. @Ale: el arró tá listo ?

Authentic San Blas Experience. Experienced Crew has good knowledge of Kuna culture and respects and supports locals Delicious food prepared daily seafood for lunch and dinner ( lobster, tuna, jackfish, octopus) Clean and cozy sailboat Fun activities swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, hammocks Ale and Lorenzo are beautiful and amazing people who made the trip so special ♥️ ** Full disclosure: transportation to sailboat takes 3 hours from Panama City on rough windy road by pre-arranged 4x4 company to drive plus 1-1.5 hour water taxi to reach sailboat and you will get wet on the boat so be prepared for it. If you are the type of traveller up for adventure, culture and pristine natural beauty it would be a fabulous trip.

Very nice time on the boat, exceptionally good food provided and overall a relaxed and cozy atmosphere. Surely a recommendation for those looking for a time out on a small sailing boat!!! Lets be honest as things always could have been better. But here is not much except the way getting to the boat and back. There is some quite noteable additional cost involved which, in our view, people should be made aware beforehand. It is important to note that this is outside of the influence of the owners as purely down to the Kuna, who rule that territory but since kicking in, it will hit the wallet of any customer. However, we would be surely doing it again! So if you look for things like that, Lycka would be the very right place! 😊

We had such a wonderful 2 nights stay on Lycka. The speed boat to the sailboat was pretty rough but as soon as we arrived at Lycka we felt at home. We had two seniors, two kids and two adults on board. Lorenzo took us around the islands, showed us beautiful beaches, the white sand is so fine. Ale cooked such tasty seafood every day. The lobsters are so huge, fresh and delicious. It's like in paradise dining on the boat with family. We also had very lovely conversation with the couple. We enjoyed every minute of the stay.

Eu e minha esposa passamos 1 semana neste veleiro. Difícil por onde começar. Primeiro de tudo, acho a melhor forma de conhecer San Blas, podendo conhecer várias ilhas, incluindo Cayos Holandeses, por isso sugiro 1 semana. O casal que nos recebe no veleiro é fantástico. Lorenzo e Ale sempre muito gentis, não os conhecia, mas posso dizer que encontramos amigos. Lorenzo é o capitão, faz passeios para a ilhas e excursões de snorkel, sempre deixando bem a vontade nos passeios. Tem uma grande experiência de quem já rodou o mundo de mochila. Ale é uma pessoa muito simpática, cozinheira excelente, conseguindo transforma ingredientes simples é um prato de sabor inigualável. No barco possui todo o material de snorkel, 3 refeições, bebido alcoólica em quantidade moderada. Em uma semana pode me desconectar realmente da vida moderna e relaxar, dando importância a coisas simples da vida, como a importância da água doce. Refeições a luz da lua com excelente companhia. Podemos ver e mergulhar com várias mantarraias, tubarão gato, Lion fish e outros de enorme beleza. Experiência única de viagem que recomendo para ir com calma. 1 semana é excelente. Quartos são apertados como se espera em um veleiro, como sinto muito calor conseguiram um ventilador. SEMANA PERFEITA QUE FICA NA MEMÓRIA.

Lorenzo et Alexandra sont des amoureux des san blas et sont très respectueux de la nature et des guna. Nous avons passé 4 jours exceptionnels avec eux. La couchette arrière est grande et confortable et les repas excellents Grace à Alexandra (le chupito de rhum a la fin du repas est toujours le bienvenue). Lorenzo est un fan de plongée qui connaît tous les recoins des îles. Lorenzo parle espagnol, anglais et français ce qui rend tres agréable les échanges. Nous avons pu pêcher à la canne a pêche sur le bateau. Ils sont très accessibles et aiment recevoir.

Toda una experencia, las playas increibles, el barco hermoso, y los anfitriones adorables. LLegar alla cuesta un poquito, sobre todo si hay oleaje, pues vas en una lacha pequena, pero una vez que llegas, ..... la vision es tan hermosa que sientes ganas de llorar de la emocion, El barco es una pasada, tiene todo lo necesario para estar comodos, y Lorenzo y Alex, te hace sentir como en casa, Una copa de vino viendo la mas bella de puesta de sol que puedas imaginar en exquisita conpania,que mas se puede pedir. Sin duda repetiremos, espero que muy pronto. Gracias Loren y Alex por estos dias tan maravillosos, un fuerte Abrazo.

It was our first experience in a sailboat. The boat is an atraction itself. Classical model with lots of wood details very well mantained. The crew made us feel very confortable, like at home. Lorenzo and Ale shared their life with us on board like we were old friends. Fresh and tasty seafood every day. San Blas is a piece of heaven on Earth. The color of the water, the islands, the susnset over the sea, the million stars sky at night is a perfect opportunity to contemplate nature and relax.

We had a wonderful trip with Lorenzo and Ali on Lyckaribe. The San Blas Islands are spectacular, and Lorenzo and Ali were so attentive to our wishes. We got to sail every day and they made an extra effort to take us snorkeling every day, as well. Lorenzo even snorkeled with us. Ali prepared wonderful, appealing meals, incorporating local produce from the Kuna 'vegetable boat' and local fish whenever she could. We really appreciated their calm competence in handling their lovely boat, and their clear love for sharing it with us. They made our experience extra special and we will hold our memories of our trip dear forever.
