These days many captains of sailboats organize trips from Panama to Colombia. This journey takes around 2-3 days sailing if you go straight ahead but many captains choose to spend a few days and nights on the beautiful San Blas Islands before sailing for open water. We summoned up a few captains of different boats that you can hire for a sailing trip in the San Blas region. If you are a captain and want your boat and service listed on our website than you can contact us!
