Overview

CACIQUE CRUISER guided and non-guided packages to experience Panama's premier destinations. We are most popular as a provider of amazing island hopping trips through the gorgeous islands of Guna Yala (formerly known as San Blas). However, we also offer equally stellar trips to explore amazing caves & jungles near Panama's Darien province and a range of customizable beach, surf and island eco tours.

Awesome trip, much more organized than expected. If you get car sick though, bring something to help the drive as the road for at least 1 hour is crazy. Would definitely do this again through the same company!

Hi. We have never been asked to show vaccinations when entering Panama and we have never heard of anyone else being asked. Once in Panama city the vaccine is also available.
