“Remarkable Experience!!!”
Reviewed 13 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Our family of four (12 yr old daughter and 10 yr old son) spent 5 nights aboard the Pura Vida with this amazing family. Peter, Elaine and Arthur (aka - batman) were amazing hosts making sure all of us were comfortable at all times and they surely made us feel right at home during our stay. Their cooking is fresh and homemade at its best, be prepared to be amazed... Captain Peter is well respected by the locals and his knowledge of the area is impressive. The pictures don’t capture the true beauty of this place which becomes even more special by the memories created aboard The Pura Vida with this remarkable family. Can’t wait to be back...

We only have superlatives about Peter and his wife Elaine and their catamaran Pura Vida. Things went perfectly smooth and without a hitch from the time we scheduled our booking to the last minute of our stay with them in the San Blas Islands. Peter and his wife are knowledgable, kind, attentive and extremely hard working. They spared nothing to make us feel comfortable, safe and entertained. The meals were all spectacular. Every day our schedule was carefully tailored to our needs and interests. Seeing the San Blas Island paradise through their eyes was moving and we were impressed about their sensitivity knowledge and interest in the proud Guna-Yala people and their land. We have no reservations to recommend this as first rate experience.

“Totally Pura Vida!”
Reviewed 6 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We spent some amazing days on board of Pura Vida - it was pure paradise and really pura vida!
We appreciated the warm welcome and felt very happy all the time!
Peter and Elaine are the very best host you could wish for, they are always caring and very open for everyone's wishes. We had also a great time with Arthur playing at the beach - the family is absolutely lovely!
The food was sensational, we loved the delicious and fresh cuisine!
Not to forget about the stunning beaches of San Blas, one island more beautiful than the other! The snorkeling trips were amazing and we loved the spontaneous barbecue while staying all together on a beautiful island. Besides that we enjoyed swaying the day away in a hammock or spending some cozy moments on board of Pura Vida.

It was by far the best experience ever - highly recommendable!

¡Muchísimas gracias a vosotros, era fantástico y hasta luego!
Besitos a todos

“Paradise, unbeatable!!!”
Reviewed 12 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Words can't explain the fabulous long weekend we spent onboard Pura vida with Elaine, Peter, Artur and Lucio. They were friendly, fun, attentive and inspiring... the boat - perfect.. the food- outstanding (Elaine's pasta with lobster and crab is the best we have ever had, as well as peter's homemade bread for breakfast!). We all played and fell in love with Artur and his Batman outfit.
For anyone who is considering a few days enjoying San Blas, this is the perfect choice. The scenic setting of San Blas is simply paradise heaven, and even the weather was also good to us! 6 of us all in agreement that it was one of the best experiences ever, and certainly will be looking to go back. THANK YOU!!!!

“A fabulous vacation, wow....”
Reviewed 6 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Peter is a great sailor and a perfect host. His wife Elaine is gracious, warm and a fabulous cook. Our only problem was it was too short to allow for lots of sailing. We were busy, snorkelling, swimming, beach cruising, eating and relaxing. We can hardly wait to go back...
