The Crew

John and Eileen hail from Venezuela. They have been in San Blas since 2007, so have spent over 15 years sailing these waters. They know each corner of San Blas like the back of their hand. They have also cultivated great friendships with the local guna families on the islands, so a trip with them will give you an insight into the local culture and traditions. John loves to surf and Eileen is always doing sports, from swimming to running and stretching on the islands. If you're the sporty type, these two would be great hosts for you!
