If you love to party, drink rum and aren't worried about getting the most of what you paid for, Cacique Cruiser is the San Blas tour for you. The water and islands of san Blas are breath taking and Dickey knows his way around the islands, is in very good company with the natives, is friendly, loquacious, and informative. That being said my group and the other group that joined us ran into several road bumps before we even finished making our reservations. They were accommodating enough to book us in 24 hrs, however our invoices were incorrect several times, sent very late and I had to call late to confirm when/where we were to meet in the AM. Next, the 2nd half of our group went "missing" to no fault of any of the paying guests and wasted several hours while Dickey sorted it out. We were promised rum as reimbursement for the time wasted. Once on the islands we had a wonderful time but had to take charge and ask if we were going to do what was promised on the itinerary. Snorkel gear got left behind and by the time we got it we only had about 15min to explore the shipwreck, which ended up being very cool and we wished we had more time to explore. Plates and silverwear got left behind at lunch once so a few people had to watch everyone else dig into an amazing fresh seafood lunch while they waited. At the conclusion of our trip, Chris was in charge of taking us to a museum and getting us back to Panama City, however he was too inebriated to even get in the boat. So no museum tour and we had to organize our ride back to town because he was clueless, couldn't keep his eyes open and knew he was about to be fired (as dickey shared with us on the trip.) I always felt secure with Dickey and generally feel like he has everything under control, but he certainly runs on island time. If you're paying that much I expect to get the best service. San Blas is a must to visit, but I might research other tour groups if I have an opportunity to go back
