Arrive in Panama, then a quick
flight on a small plane to Porvenier. You will be greeted
by your crew and brought back to your charter yacht via
the tender. Enjoy a leisurely lunch onboard, then visit
enchanting Nalunega. A short trip over to the Chichime
Cays allows plenty of time to watch the sunset over the
mountains of Panama.
Spend the morning snorkeling the crystal clear waters,
reluctantly returning to the yacht for lunch. As you dine
al fresco on the shaded deck, your captain will move the
boat to the next anchorage: Holandes Cays. You can hardly
wait to plunge back into the water, or perhaps take a
stroll on the white sand beach and relax beneath a coconut
Greet the day with a cup of fresh-brewed coffee, watching
the sun rise from behind a perfect tropical island. Following
breakfast, leave for the Coco Bandero Cays. Lunch will
be a beach barbeque, followed by a nap on a hammock strung
between two palm trees. Then maybe a swim or kayaking
before cocktails at sunset.
You awake to the quiet hum of engines as you head toward
Alitupu, close to the mainland. Explore the nearby rivers
and enjoy the thick shade of the rainforest and the songs
of the vast number of birds that live there.
Leave Alitupu in the morning to spend the day at Nurdupu.
Yet another example of a perfect tropical island, Nurdupu
is dotted with coconut palms and breadfruit trees, ringed
by white sand beaches and surrounded by clear azure waters.
Dinner is perhaps lobster that the chef has purchased from
a local fisherman.
Leave the serene perfection of Nurdupu for the more populated
island of Rio Diablo. Lunch in town to try out the local
cuisine and enjoy the hospitality of the friendly Kuna
Indians. The afternoon will be spent leisurely exploring
the Rio Nasadi with its large stands of bamboo and mango
An early start for Ustupu, home to the largest village
in San Blas, population 8,000! But there is still time
to stop for one last quick swim in the gin-clear waters
before showering and a short trip to the airstrip where
you meet your plane to take you back to civilization.
You know you have return, you still have several hundred
islands yet to explore. The adventure will continue...
