We booked through San Blas sailing and all arrangements were done via email--everything was as quoted and perfect. We are a family with two boys ages 9 &10 that returned from 3 days on Pepita. Gilbert is an amazing Captain that shared his knowledge of the area. Words cannot explain the beauty of the San Blas. Elisabeth, the cook, has a smile that doesn't stop. Her meals were wonderful and my picky children would agree! The boat provided plenty of cold beverages: beer, wine, rum, juice. We saw dolphins, snorkeled on endless reefs, had a BBQ on our own island, met Kuna, toured Kuna Villages, and had a family vacation we will remember forever. This was a trip we are already talking about repeating.
You need to remember you are on a boat and the captain cannot control the weather. Gilbert told us that customers complain to him about cloudy skies or too much or too little wind...not in his control. We read reviews about which islands to see and decided to let the captain pick--because he knows the area. The islands are surrounded by coral and based on wind and waves it was more difficult to approach certain islands.
