First the recommendations and tips for new guest - 2-3 nights is more than enough. 4 is too much. - When you get in the 4 by 4, get in the front seats if you have long legs. - Dont expect luxury, but you get the local experience which is great way to live with and be surrounded by the... More

great experience, summed up my holiday perfectly. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. I was always kept busy with lots of activity and food. The only part I didn't like was the driver that took us from Panama drove like a man possessed.

I did the one night, two days stay at San Blas Islands and it was amazing! We arrived at our main island around 10-11am and after putting our luggage in a small hut (12-bed dorm hut) we went to another island for a few hours. They served chips and rum/coke there. After spending a few hours there we went back... More

Islands are really beautiful. Accomodation is super basic and not worth the money. But really sad was that the locals dont make you feel comfy... you are just their sponsors :)) At least at our family that was just keen on the money and kicked us rude out of our small hut when the fresh money arrives. Maybe another Island... More

Spent three days and two nights in San Blas with my mom December 8-10. We booked the "el original" option. It was FANTASTIC!! Our guide Ian was friendly and informative, and the Guna kind and welcoming. The Guna all called my mom "mama" and ensured that she was comfortable and happy (she's a young 66). She loved it. If you're... More

Cacique Cruiser did a good job in organizing the tour, keep you up to date. Unfortunately the drivers do not speak english and the way back we were packed in the backseats of the car which had too little legspace. Islands are beautiful and the food was good. Crew on boats and island are very friendly. Sleeping/facilities are very basic... More

We had a very bad experience with Cacique. We chartered a sailing boat ourselves and booked the transfer from Panama City to San Blas via Cacique. It's a trip of approx. 4.5 hours by car and by motorboat. But it took us over 7 hours! Due to wrong communication by Cacique between our captain and the motorboat company. They failed... More

The live chat on the website was very useful and provided all the information I needed to book. cost was $300 for 3 days. You pay $100 to reserve the place and then $200 on the day to the... More

I went there nearly a year ago for New Year Eve as i backpacked from Panama up to Mexiko. In the end of this trip i have to say i did the best thing at the beginning! I promised Verena, the German owner of the company, that I'll write a recommendation, without knowing (except of the three days) her or... More

When I found the web site from some friends, everything was extremely easy. The live chat was the best tool to find out everything about my trip from the well informed agents. We decided for the el original packet with 2 nights on the island. We visited at least 5 more islands, the food was perfect, any question or wish... More
