CACIQUE CRUISER guided and non-guided packages to experience Panama's premier destinations. We are most popular as a provider of amazing island hopping trips through the gorgeous islands of Guna Yala (formerly known as San Blas). However, we also offer equally stellar trips to explore amazing caves & jungles near Panama's Darien province and a range of customizable beach, surf and island eco tours.

We booked the San Blas - El Original trip (3 days / 2 nights). The San Blas island are amazing and should be part of everybody's visit to Panama. The information provided by Cacique Cruiser beforehand is extensive and very helpful as I understood from other people that their agencies did not provide all information accurately beforehand. Because of this... More

I booked a "Coconut Express" day trip just 24 hours in advance or so. I booked online, paid in full so I didn't have to worry about withdrawing cash, and was added to a WhatsApp group that gave me a ton of information on what to expect. Brett, the organizer (who I never met) sent us our drivers' names, pickup... More

The San Blas islands are absolutely stunning and really are a must-do if you are travelling anywhere in Panama, particularly Panama City. I'm glad I went on this trip as the islands were beautiful and I met some great people there. In particular, the visit to the island where the Kuna village is was awesome, and the man (Davis) at...

I arranged this tour based on Trip Advisor reviews and boy was I pleased with the result! The entire day was seamless! Dicky arranged a ride directly from our hotel and met us at the boat. Enroute we were taken to a grocery store for some daily supplies and to pay our fees. The vehicle was fine although that ride... More

Paying over 200$ for 2days 1night is very expensive, at least for me, so I expected just more than i got - the description of the "el original" san bkas tour at the caciquecruiser website was not my reality: at first - driving there in the jeep last row with no space for feet and no headrest was uncomfortable as...

We went for the day. It is a long day but worth the early 5am start. Beautiful islands, water and sandy beaches. If you like to 'rough it' a little then you would enjoy staying for a night or two in the basic huts. Cacique Cruiser does everything they can to make sure you have a great day/s. Highly recommend.

Loved the thatched hut over the water. Truly a special experience. Hammocks on the deck, mosquito netting over the queen bed, spacious lodging in our own private paradise! Such a treat to fly into Playon Chico vs the long jeep & boat rides to the other islands. We used the Limon & Sal Package through Cacique Cruiser, plus they helped... More

Guna Yala is simply amazing! I stayed in Franklin Island and local people are really friendly! Surely I'll go back!

First of all we want to mention that cacique cruiser, as a company as well as its employees concern themselves with the change tourism brings to the natives. They started to teach traditional natives about plastic waste and waste separation. They keep their own islands clean and support the local school. On our trips to other islands we could clearly...

I definitely recommend going to San Blas, which is simply the postcard from heaven you receive from the rich cousin traveling around the world, while you are sadly working in your cubicle on a monday morning. In particular, I suggest to do it with this company, as the level of professionalism and care for the customer has no comparison! They... More
