I had not planned this vacation very well, all i knew is that i wanted and needed to get away last month, a friend had talked to me years ago about Panama and the San Blas islands, it was time to go explore what it was all about. I found the company "San Blas Sailing" online, looked at their website and excellent reviews, emailed them inquiring about possibilities and options available, and our trip was organized and booked in no time.The team in their Panama City office responded right away, was so helpful and professional, I felt immediately at ease and confident that this was the company to travel with and trust with our wellbeing and our vacation.
Our San Blas sailing adventure aboard Jivago with Jean-Charles and Yuri is one of the best vacations we’ve ever had, it was an astonishing 3-weeks-escapade in a haven of peace, wonders and beauty!
Our brilliant crew couldn’t have been more thoughtful and attentive to our every need and desire, JC set up a dreamy itinerary for us in the San Blas, all the way to Cartagena and back. We got to experience the life on Jivago (a first time sailing experience for both of us), but we also got to spend time on many islands and meet some of JC’s lovely friends, Kuna and fellow sailors. To mention only a few of our daily activities, my favorites were probably snorkeling the gorgeous reef in different areas, eating the catch of the day deliciously prepared by our genius chef and captain JC, discovering the Kuna culture, swimming every morning in such a pristine, lush and amazing setting, sailing the open sea to Cartagena, kayaking to a Colombian village, dining under the stars with the most fun and warm hosts I’ve had the privilege to meet and their friends. The photos may speak better of how happy we are and how good it was, I can’t remember when was the last time I smiled so big and so much, for so long.
We are so thankful to the San Blas Sailing team for setting everything up for us in such a perfect way, and our beloved captain-now-friend Jean-Charles and his assistant Yuri for giving us the time of our lives in the San Blas. We learned a ton, enjoyed it all like there was no tomorrow, and shall return as soon as we can. I highly recommend this voyage and company to everyone, experienced or not, family, couple or single, there's something for everyone, it's amazing!
