What is the Best Catamaran in San Blas?

Depending on your needs, brands of Fountaine Pajot, Lagoon and Leopard are one of the main brands of catamarans to look for in your next sailing vacations in the islands of Guna Yala

To simplify matters, here is a list of tips and the basic amenities that you should look for when booking a catamaran in the San Blas islands:

  1. Air conditioning or not. Take into consideration that you are visiting the tropics and that depending on your tolerance of heat, you may or may not require a catamaran with air conditioning

  2. Water toys onboard: a few years ago, snorkeling gear was sufficient to make guests have a good time, nowadays, paddles, kayaks and even sea scooters at no cost should be included

  3. Nice dinghy to reach the islands is necessary. Think about it as your car which you will use to penetrate the hidden San Blas

  4. Good ventilation in the cabins means that you will not only not feel claustrophobic but will also be able to hear the soothing sound of the sea

  5. Small catamarans tend to roll more ane be uncomfortable at sea and at the anchorage. Choose bigger ones such as the Salina 48

  6. Crew Crew Crew, we can’t emphasize this enough. You need professional crew that loves their job

  7. Fantastic food on board is a must: ask the agency for pictures

  8. Lobster included and not as a supplement on top of the charter expense

  9. Minimum alcohol included, the norm is 2 beers and 1/2 bottle of wine per person/day

  10. Possibility to be transferred by plane from Panama city or elsewhere and get picked at from the airport in Corazon de Jesus
