Sailing to Colombia from Panama was one of the more exciting things we did while traveling in Central and South America. Leading up to that decision, we had a difficult time finding information on the Internet about specific boats and their captains. On the hostel sites that do book these trips, they only list the skipper and boat with no feedback from their passengers.
A Guide for Backpackers Sailing to Colombia
We have built a resource page on our site dedicated to information regarding booking a sailboat from Colombia to Panama or Panama to Colombia. The Sailing to Colombia or Panama resource provides an account of our experience sailing with Captain Dave and his 32 foot Tango from Puerto Lindo to Cartagena, via the San Blas Islands.
We can provide ample feedback on The Tango sailboat, but we can’t on the dozen other boats that sail between Colombia and Panama. These sailboat trips focus on serving the need that backpackers have to travel between Central and South America on a backpacker’s budget. I ask that you please contribute to the Sailing to Colombia or Panama resource in order to compile feedback from actual experiences sailing with specific captains on specific boats.
Please help build our database to provide backpackers with more information when sailing to Colombia or Panama.
