Any Questions or concerns pls feel free to contact us...... Paul & Daniela Play to Live Sailing and enjoying the life of the San Blas Island , all inclusive adventures to discover and enjoy the Kuna life in Panama. Crystal clear water and beautiful small islands to discover, all around and enjoy a typical meal with Kunas or eat onboard and enjoy authentic Italian cooking. We do everything from fishing, snorkeling, to finding you one of the many deserted islands for you to relax on, where you can sunbathe and snorkel at your leisure. Daniela & myself have years of experience chartering and entertaining guests through out the Caribbean, and would welcome the opportunity to share our San Blas experience with you. If you want to learn to sail, take the wheel, help set up the boat, this is the place for you as Daniela and myself have logged more than 40000 miles sailing and would love to share our knowledge of sailing and tales of the ocean life with you. Your crew of Daniela and myself, Paul, will be available to you 24/7 to make you feel at home. We have extensive knowledge of San Blas and are excited to share with you the hidden gems of this beautiful place. We are here to assist you with whatever you need, from arranging activities (snorkeling, fishing, diving, we can arrange river walks thru the jungle to the waterfalls, and more) to sharing stories. If you're someone who desires more privacy, we're happy to respect your space and keep our interactions minimal. You are in charge of your own trip! , and if you book your vacation on Play to Live you will be the only guests onboard, all our attention will be focused on giving you a unique and once in a lifetime experience in paradise. Our boat Play to Live is 100 percent green, we live exclusively off of solar and wind power, and make all of our rain water pure drinking water onboard. Take the wheel if you like and learn and experience sailing first hand. The evenings you can sit and relax or join me while I go fishing in our dinghy beside the reefs while trying to catch some fresh fish for sushi or ceviche. We try to make all your meals from scratch, and if you enjoy Italian cooking Daniela will entertain with cooking lessons, from making fresh pasta, home made bread, bolognaise sauce, pizza, we do it all on our boat. We look forward to answering any inquiries that you may have... Paul & Daniela Play to LiveMore
