My trip to San Blas was made so exceptionally easy and special thanks to the itravelbyboat team and overall experience. Estefania and team were communicative and organized, working with me to find the best boat for my trip dates, organizing transportation to and from Panama City and made me feel safe and well-taken care of. Within minutes on the boat I felt like family.
San Blas is a special, absolutely gorgeous place and I would highly recommend spending a few days on a sailing trip to see the islands and really soak up the true paradise. This experience was made even more special with the itravelbyboat team. I have already recommended several friends and would absolutely book with them again if I ever find myself in Panama!
We travelled as a group of 7 friends in Panama and Costa Rica and our first stop were the San Blas Islands. Little did we anticipate that this will become the highlight of the trip! The islands and life at sea are absolutely amazing and we can't recommend seeing them enough. We think that staying a few nights on a sailboat trumps staying in Kuna Yala provided accommodation - more comfort, better food (at least in our case , better mobility.
Thanks, Estefania, for arranging our trip for us! The Skipper and girl helping him out were very kind and willing to show us the best of times, although we thought that we could've sailed a bit more to explore more than the 2 islands we've been to in our 2 nights/days trip.
A must do and highly recommend!!!!! Gianluca and Ingrid on Zahir were great. Nice company, great food, comfortable boat, beautiful islands and lucky with the weather, as well . Transportation from Panama city was also OK, so no complaints whatsoever. Thank you guys (Gianluca, Ingrid and Steph) for everything!!!
I just returned from a memorable four days of sailing in San Blas. Words can not do justice to the beauty of this place. The perfect way to see it you ask... on a boat!
Stef and I Travel By Boat took care of our group setting us up with the perfect catamaran and two beautiful people Renato and Sarah. Just hours before we were to be picked up, what could have been a very stressful situation was smoothed over quickly and with detail by Stef. Thank you! We felt well taken care of.
Once on the boat Renato and Sarah made us feel not just as guest but as friends in their home. Sarah made sure we were well fed with wonderful Brazilian treats and even an pizza night! Renato would drop anything to take our group to the next great snorkeling spot or to teach us about sailing and letting us help when we could. Lastly, Feijao was a constant and welcome four legged friend we loved having onboard with us.
Our group is still "sailing" on the high of this amazing trip. We will take the stories and memories with us as well as two new friends!
We have had the most unforgettable experience of our lives onboard Scacco Matto (CheckMate)!!! Thanks to the captain Juri for looking after us like we were family....and the most amazing meals created by Ellio and Juri!!! We hope to return one day and relive it all again! Thank you thank you thank you!!! Also, thank you Stef for organising it all. For everyone booking through I travel by Boat...trust Stef!
