What an adventure! I travel alone and have decided for the sailing ship *victory*. Nico and flor were our crew and there is no better way! :)
Nico was responsible for safety and was mostly captain and explained a lot about the landscape and the people. The enchanting cook *flor* spoiled us (vegi and meat eater) 3x daily with really excellent food. (as a good hobby chef I dare to judge food :).
On the ship there is everything for snorkelling, a great place to stay where everyone gathers. I hope you are lucky with the other passengers and have a great experience as I had it.

We had a great time on the Amande. It was amazing. The crew did so well! All the time trying to maximize our pleasure. The food was delicious. The trip really made us aware of how we are exploiting the sea with plastics. We are definitely going to reduce the our plastic consumption (eg. going to buy sparkling water machine). But again: thank you so much Tote, Mateo and Sina...for the great experience.

We just arrived from our amazing sailing trip from Panama to Colombia on the Perla. It started with 3 beautiful days on the San Blas Islands with incredible sunsets, amazing snorkel experiences and dolphins swimming around the sailing boat.
Our crew with captain Lucho, Pepe and the amazing cook Mercedes was the best crew we could imagine. We had a lot of fun together sailing into the sunsets of the blue Caribbean Sea while enjoying the whale watching.
Mercedes cooked the best food you could imagine and really had an eye for small details. Lucho answered all our questions about how to sail and was always in a good mood and we had a lot of fun. Pepe and Lucho always went the extra mile to keep the boat moving even at nighttimes.
We highly recommend sailing with Lucho and his crew.
We really encourage all future passengers on this trip to engage in ocean- and beach cleanup at the San Blas Islands - These Islands are a true paradise and need our help to be preserved. Please proactively ask your captain, crew members and fellow passengers to support your efforts and do not leave any trash or garbage bags back on the islands as they lack a proper system of waste disposal.

I booked the sailing trip with the catamaran Santana from Puerto Lindo Panama to cartagena colombia without knowing exactly what to expect in the next days. You can't, because there are not enough words to describe this trip!
I spent 5 incredible days on the ship and the San Blas Islands, which couldn't have been better.
Our good-hearted Captain Michel always took care of our well-being and brought a big portion of humor on board. His knowledge is immense and I will definitely miss the great conversations (even in German!) with him!
Our cook Francisco was also simply brilliant. I was impressed by the excellent food (also for
vegetarian) he prepared for us every day. And all this in such a small space!
Michel and Francisco work together very well and they brought us safely across the big sea at any time.
And our group of 17 people was a great mix of everything and we just had a great time together!

A unique and amazing experience that I will never forget! Thank you for this!!
