CACIQUE CRUISER guided and non-guided packages to experience Panama's premier destinations.

If you plan to visit Panama, don't miss the San Blas Islands and don't go with any other group. Cacique Cruiser is super well organised and connected with the local community. During our 2.5 day stay, we visited multiple islands, the next one more beautiful than the last.

We (unfortunately) did not book with them but with another tour agency. We were left at one of the islands without any information.

This is such a great trip, worth the money and is a brilliant experience. Bring water, drinks for the evening, lots of sunscreen and healthy snacks. Dani in particular was an excellent guide and so much fun!

You will not meet a better tour guide/ organiser than Dani. My boyfriend accidentally sliced his toe open and I didn't have to lift a finger. Organising boats, speaking to doctors in Spanish and not letting us pay for boats and Utes back to the hospital. She made an unfortunate situation extremely bearable. It may be 6 months late, but,...

See San Blas before you die. Seriously, if you have to budget the rest of your trip, this is worth the splurge. The islands are absolutely incredible, and still fairly true to their indigenous roots. I did a lot of research before my trip to Panama City and knew I had to make it out to San Blas. I didn't... More
