We spent 3 days and 3 nights on board the VIP One catamaran with Yoan, Anais and Eduardo. They did a great job making us comfortable. We sailed to several islands; Caya Hollandase, Salerdup - where we met some local Gunas, bought some beers from them and some molas and bracelets from the women. The island was very clean and not too many bugs. On Wasaladup we had a local Guna climb a tree and get some coconuts so we could have some coconut water. Remember you have to pay a fee to go on these islands and don't take photos without permission. Another great island we did a ton of snorkeling on was Kwanidup. We found a lot of starfish, sand dollars and saw some rays and fish swimming around the coral. Renting a boat is a great way to see the islands and experience the culture. The VIP One is a great boat but I would not rent it for more than 6 people. There are 3 doubles and one very small room with a teeny tiny window that 2 kids could sleep in but If it is hot your kids will end up in bed with you or out on the deck. It also rained almost every night so it made it difficult to stay cool because we had to close the overhead windows . We did have 2 hours of A/C from 9-11 except the last night when we were outside of Carti and a plastic bag got stuck in the generator. It was a great adventure but bring a hat, swim shirt and sun block and bug spray. The food was really good. We even bought some lobsters directly from 2 fishermen on the last day and Anais cooked them for dinner. We ate lots of fresh fruit and fish and there was plenty of wine and soft drinks. I would highly recommend this trip.
