We were a group of seven on the Lagoon 57. Our friend did all the arrangements (booking, transfers, taxes) so no comments on that process. We took the chartered flight option to get there and it was worth the cost to do so, especially after talking to someone who did the drive and hearing about the people who got carsick from the bumpy drive.

When we arrived at Corazón de Jesús Airport, the captain of our catamaran, Cesar, was there to pick us up in a dinghy. Cesar and his skipper, Georgina, took excellent care of us for the five days we were in the San Blas islands. They took us to different islands and gave us lots of time to swim, paddle board, snorkel, and explore the islands. The food they prepared for us was delicious - three meals plus a snack each day. They purchased fresh fish, squid, and lobsters from the local fishermen to cook for us. There were a few problems that popped up with the catamaran that luckily our friends were able to help fix. We did get some rain everyday (we were there in the third week of November), sometimes during the day and sometimes during the night. It didn’t prevent us from enjoying our time on the water, however. Bring insect repellent because the sand flies can be a problem, even while on the boat!

Clear waters, lots of marine life to see, relaxing beach time and even a meal on the beach one evening! Cesar and Georgina were very accommodating and made this an enjoyable and stress-free vacation for us. It was a great way to explore the islands if beaches and swimming are your priority. Thanks to Cesar and Georgina for a great time!

Just back from 3 nights on Mambo Diablo - a trip of a lifetime. My friend coordinating booking with Chris without a problem who referred us for transport. We ended up taking the plane charter over driving because it meant more time on the boat and would highly recommend if you can do that. Our Captain Danny was flying solo because his mate was having a baby and didn't skip a beat! Food was delicious. He was easy going and knew just where to snorkel and how long to stay at each stop. There were four of us - two singles and a couple - and we were perfectly comfortable. I loved that Danny knew the locals and found fresh lobster, conch and other fresh fish for lunch and dinner. He made our trip so perfect. We saw manta, sea fans, starfish, coral, conch and billions of fish as well as hiked around every island to get a feel for both.

We spent an amazing three days on the Mambo Diablo catamaran with an amazing crew (Captain Daniel, Paloma and Jose).
We flew from Panama City to Corazon de Jesus (definitely recommended to travel this way - a quick 40min flight with beautiful views). Captain Daniel picked us up right outside the plane and straight to the Catamaran by dinghy.
The boat was beautiful and very well equipped (they had outfitted special requests for our kids 7 and 4 y/o including games and food).
We felt so at ease and comfortable (food and drinks galore, the crew was always available for questions, knew how much to get involved, and easy going). We spent our days at beautiful secluded islands, jumping in and out of the water, kayaking, paddle boarding, and using the hugely popular Seabobs (my kids couldn't get enough of these - even the 4 year old). The snorkeling was also amazing, lots of coral, fish, star fish, etc. The water was so clear you could also enjoy all of the sea life from the paddle board/kayaks.
The food was incredible! Fresh and amazing, we even went fishing one night from the back of the boat and caught tons of fish, they purchased lobster from local fisherman, YUM. My youngest wouldn't stop crying when it was time to leave - the kids throughly enjoyed using the net at the front of the boat as a trampoline.
It's a little hard to sleep in a boat if you're not used to it, but by the second night our kids had gotten the hang of it. The adults slept half of the night on the catamaran "trampoline" then made our way down half way through the night. I am very prone to sea sickness but experienced very few issues (I took a dramamine once as a precaution and was sure to spend my time outside when we were traveling between islands).
100% recommended! I had to pinch myself multiple times just to confirm that I was living my real life.

So many great things to say about this trip! We were fortunate to have a great crew Danny, Paloma and Jose were so accommodating and catered to our family in every way. We travelled with our two young kids and they were great about adapting meals that they would enjoy and were familiar and provided lots of snacks for their ever hungry tummies! Paloma and Danny cooked many of their native foods from Spain which was delicious to try. We appreciated their kindness and helpfulness with the kids, taking them out on little trips in the dinghy to beaches and snorkelling. They will no doubt have these memories forever.

As many have said the booking process with Chris was seamless and thorough. I was a little worried about wire transferring so much money ahead of time also but everything was as discussed and more. We were kindly upgraded to a boat with A/C at no charge at the last minute, we didn't need it much but was nice on the really hot days to cool down for a short time. We also took the advice to fly to Corazon de Jesus, which was a very cool experience, highly recommend!

Just experienced the most magical vacation of my life (with my 3 girlfriends) on the Flying Ginny catamaran with Elena (and her second mate, Guadalupe). We learned so much about the San Blas islands, the indigenous Kuna people, and the coral reef. Every day was an adventure. We snorkeled around the coral reef (and even explored a shipwreck), sunbathed on uninhabited islands, floated on Nicole the unicorn, played with Nali (the sweetest watchdog, fiercest real-life scarecrow, and expert coconut peeler), and visited islands to purchase molas from the kuna women (and even met Lisa, the famous mola maker —what a treat!). On a clear night, we slept under the stars and it was breathtaking. The food every day was amazing, with fresh catches purchased from the Kuna and lots of fresh vegetables, cheese, and bread. In the evenings, we laughed & shared stories with Captain Elena. She was truly a fount of information, wise beyond her years, with such a deep understanding, respect and connection with the Kuna people. On our last day aboard, Lupe prepared a cake to celebrate our 40th birthdays. I couldn’t think of a more sweet or fitting end to a perfect vacation in paradise.

Highly recommend this trip for couples on a honeymoon or celebrating anniversaries (it’s very romantic and private), families with older kids (above 10 years old to enjoy all of the activities) and 100% recommended for a girls trip!

We had an amazing time on our San Blas sailing adventure on the Tango catamaran! Chris made the process very easy for us. He presented us with boat options, answered all our questions, and made payments very easy. He also helped us arrange ground transportation to the port and the water taxi to the catamaran. Chris was responsive and easy to communicate with. We didn't know what to expect, but the process was easy and it was a magical trip that exceeded our expectations.

This was the best experience I could have hoped for. I cannot say enough about this company and the experience on San Blas. Chris was my contact person through the company. He was helpful beyond belief. He correctly encouraged us to fly to San Blas from PC rather than do the road. When we took a few days to consider booking and the original boat we had chosen was booked, he quickly found an even better one for us. He was responsive and reliable.

Now, the actual sail was hard to describe. San Blas are the most beautiful and picturesque islands we have ever seen. We did our first catamaran rental in the USVI and while that was amazing, this was better simply based on the scenery. It's like you're in a commercial. Crystal blue water, able to see for miles, palm trees, small uninhabited islands. We hated to leave and can't wait to go back. Our captains were Monica and Diego and we sailed on Tango Sail. Food was beyond fresh--literally sea to table in under 30 min :).

I worked with Chris from Catamaran Adventures to book the Zenith catamaran and he also provided contact information so we could book our private flights to/from San Blas. At first I was a little worried because I wasn't provided a formal contract when booking the catamaran, but everything worked out perfectly. We booked this trip last minute and Chris was great with answering all of my questions and with booking the boat. I highly recommend booking with Catamaran Adventures and this trip was amazing!

Had a 3 night tour on Tango 42' Catamaran. What a way to relax. all meals prepared for you and the hosts were so much fun to stay with. Islands are remote and only some inhabited. Kuna people were welcoming and always came to the boat with food for sale, fresh seafood and of course hand made items for sale.

Thanks to Diego and Monica
