Where do you begin with the “Cush” catamaran and Crew? The fresh octopus, lobster, grouper, or red fish that is prepared daily? Maybe. Could start with all the amazing breads that are freshly baked each day “on the catamaran” by Laura? Or making fresh pasta from scratch while at sea? Maybe. How about the amazing scenery, islands, sunsets, Kuna’s selling fresh fish, lobsters, fruits, and vegetables just off the catamaran? Possibly. How about all the stories about Claudio and Laura sailing around the world and how they live in Italy some of the year and the other part in the San Blas Islands? Or how about the snorkeling, sun bathing on the front of the catamaran, walking the small remote islands, or reading a book in sea solitude? Getting closer. How about all the laughter around the lunch and dinner table, with plenty of vino! Celebrating New Years with our New Friends? So now you see why I have a difficult time finding a starting point with our amazing adventure on Cush with Claudio and Laura!

When I first looked at booking this trip I was a bit nervous because I had never heard of the company I booked thru. The reviews were all great and so with blind faith I decided to go for it. From the start Claudio’s communication was great and he was super helpful organising transportation for us from Panama City to the spot where we got the speed boat to the Catamaran. The Catamaran was well Organized and allowed the 4 of us ample space and comfort. Claudio and Laura were welcoming and beyond sweet…they went above and beyond to make sure we had a great vacation. It was the perfect combination of relaxing, water adventure and delicious healthy food by our chef extraordinaire Laura. Beautiful fresh seafood, fresh baked bread and fresh vegetable and amazing wines. Laura even taught us to make homemade focaccia! By day we snorkeled, swam, sun bathed and In the evenings we listened to music, played cards, read and just sat and talked the night away. On New Years Eve they treated us to homemade pasta which was such fun to watch being made and so scrumptious! Laura even came out with NYE decorations, hats and noise makers…such fun with our hosts that by then felt like old friends! This was literally a trip that dreams were made of and I can’t recommend Claudio, Laura and their catamaran Cush highly enough!

What a joy it was to share a few nights with Claudio and Laura aboard CUSH.  This wonderful couple sailed the world and have seen the most epic beaches in the world and they chose San Blas to lay anchor. If you want to truly find paradise there is no better place than the San Blas islands, and to get the most out of your trip, there is no better Captain than Claudio. The Kuna who welcome you onto their lands are beautiful, creative, and gregarious people. I am so grateful to Laura for being such a curious student of their culture and passing her knowledge on to her guests. After an incredible dinner and a lovely chat with Claudio and Laura, I would stay up and read a beautiful book Laura has about the women of Kuna Yala and their Molas. With a glass of Panamanian rum, it was the perfect ending to perfect days spent meeting these people and enjoying their islands. There is a clear mutual respect between Claudio, Laura, and the Kunas as evident by simple exchanges, children leaping into Claudio’s arms, the women greeting Laura by name, Claudio finding a fresh hook for a fisherman, Laura preparing coffees for two Kuna men in their canoe as they deliver fresh produce, fishermen selling the days catch to the catamarans. The Kuna are very welcoming to all but you can sense they have a genuine love for Claudio and Laura not necessarily shared with all boats. On this trip, you will literally feel like a castaway. At times I found myself laying on the white sand, under a palm tree pretty certain I was the only one on the island. Barefoot "hiking" through miniature coconut farms, dangling my legs into the water from the perch of a fallen palm tree, snorkeling alongside manta rays and sea turtles. It is as if the small boat that transfers you from the mainland to the catamaran is a time machine. Gorgeous, untouched islands — some completely isolated while others have a few Kuna families or fishermen living on them — with the most cerulean waters I’ve ever seen...(and I’ve dived throughout the Caribbean, Southeast Asia, and the Great Barrier Reef). Yet this place which on its surface appears to be one of the last unspoiled paradises on earth still manages to strike you with the stark realities of today’s modern world. There are small but tangible examples of climate change as islands fade away literally in front of you, palm trees uprooted from the sand, plastic bottles from the ocean pile up on inhabited islands, coral bleaching in some areas, and one of the few native people with the ability to do so — carefully protecting their lands from mass tourism. Don’t get me wrong, San Blas is a truly beautiful place. But it’s worth noting and in my opinion worth seeing now. Claudio and Laura are true stewards of ecotourism and sustainable living in general. With that, they are also able to deliver a truly luxurious experience for their guests rooted in their own traditions — from Italy. Laura bakes fresh bread every day. They taught me how to make homemade pasta ON A BOAT. We shared many glasses of wine and “shots of espresso” — Italian coffees. There was always a cold beer waiting for me when I got out of the water. But let’s talk specifics on the food: lobster and pasta, fish risotto, paella, octopus and tomatoes, lobster and chickpeas, and every morning the best pancakes and freshest fruit. Just incredible! A few notes on logistics. I traveled solo and would 10/10 recommend for solo travelers. I can also see a family having the most wonderful time with them. They did sail the world with a small child so they know a thing or two about kids and boats. I think 2 nights should be your minimum, I did 3 but could have stayed 3 months ( if they’d have me)! They keep the boat spotless, the cabin is comfortable and bigger than I anticipated. Claudio connects you with a third party that provides all your transportation needs. They were also good but if I were traveling with more than 3 people, I’d book the private transfer instead of the group to cut out some waiting time. Listen to what they say about limited luggage. From a chronic over-packer, you truly only need 3 bathing suits and a cover-up dress or shorts to put on for dinner, maybe a light sweater. Lots of sunscreen, lots of after sun (plus Laura has fresh aloe growing on the boat), no make-up. It’s an Italian boat but Claudio had some adapters for us 120 volters.  Claudio and Laura have a carefree ease and sense of understanding to them that I believe can only come from taking a true leap of faith, really “seeing it all,” and actually living out a life of adventure. Whatever type of traveler you are, I’m confident you’ll be inspired by and feel at home with Claudio and Laura.

Fui con mi mujer y 3 niños x 5 dias. Tuve a los dos mejores anfitriones que me podrian tocar en un viaje de este tipo. Barco super limpio, comodo y equipado. La comida excelente. El lugar es super seguro. Solo para amantes de la vida en contacto con la naturaleza. Muy recomendable.

We had a great time aboard the cush. Claudio and his wife could not have been nicer. Their boat is very well maintained and extremely comfortable. The cooking is amazing and they are truly gracious hosts. Only wish we could have stayed longer. Do not hesitate to book with them, you will have an unforgettable experience. If we find out way back to San blas we will be booking with them again.

5 giorni su una barca perfetta, con Claudio, un comandante professionale ed eccellente sotto tutti i punti di vista e Laura la "marinera" migliore dei Caraibi, ma anche una cuoca incredibile, capace di fare il pane fresco tutti i giorni e di coccolare gli ospiti in ogni maniera. Cush non è solo una barca perfetta, è un tappeto volante per staccarsi dalla vita di tutti i giorni ed entrare in un mondo incantato, le isole San Blas. Qui non ci sono solo spiagge candide, palme e mari turchesi, c'è il rispetto di queste isole da parte della comunità Kuna che le gestisce rispettandole, Il catamarano Cush veleggia in tutta sicurezza fra questi paradisi e i pescatori portano a Claudio le aragoste e il pesce appena pescato, ananas, banane e sulla tavola ogni giorno c'è una piacevole sorpresa. Niente di meglio del Cush per viaggiare e vivere un sogno sul mare.

Abbiamo trascorso quattro giorni indimenticabili sul CUSH, Con la mia famiglia composta da me, mio marito ed i nostri due figli di 3 e 5 anni. All’inizio ero piuttosto preoccupata non perché avessi paura dell’esperienza della barca in quanto avevamo già fatto questa esperienza due volte, ma il problema erano i bambini perché essendo la loro prima esperienza in barca ed essendo piccolini ero un po’ agitata, però devo dire che sorprendentemente è andato tutto bene. È stata una splendida esperienza e ai bambini è piaciuto tantissimo ci siamo trovati molto molto bene con il nostro Capitano Claudio. Purtroppo sua moglie era già tornata in Italia quindi non abbiamo avuto il piacere di conoscerla. Comunque il nostro capitano seppur da solo a provveduto a cucinarci dei piatti veramente fantastici, ci ha viziati, con il suo caffè che io ho gradito molto. Mi sono sentita veramente a casa è stata un’esperienza che consiglio veramente e se c’è qualcuno che ha qualche remora perché magari vorrebbe farla con i bambini però non hai il coraggio di farla vi vorrei dire che non è una cosa impossibile anzi tutt’altro. I posti che abbiamo visitato erano davvero fantastici. Sarebbe bello poter ripetere questa esperienza.

Estuvimos en viaje con mi hermano y su esposa en mayo por Panamá, y lejos nuestra mayor sorpresa fue descubrir un lugar como San Blas. Es un paraíso en la tierra, lleno de paisajes indescriptibles, que finalmente se convierten en recuerdos imborrables. Nunca he sentido tanta paz en la vida como viendo el atardecer desde la cubierta del CUSH. Parte fundamental de esta experiencia fue estar a bordo de este catamarán, donde todo es sencillamente de sueño. Los anfitriones Claudio y Laura hacen todo por que la experiencia sea perfecta. Comimos las mejores langostas jamás preparadas, una focaccia fuera de serie, nos llevaron a visitar islas más lejanas, tenían todo el equipo para hacer snorkel, kayak, y el Cush nos cobijó durante dos días y sus noches, pensando al poco de habernos embarcado que debimos tomar una travesía más larga. Creo que tuvimos la fortuna de conocer este pedazo del mundo que aún se conserva bastante virgen y tiene un encanto que creo se puede encontrar pocas veces en la vida. Estoy segura que marcó un viaje de los más memorables en nuestras vidas y lo repetiría mil veces más. Gracias Claudio y Laura.

Our vacation aboard Cush with Capt Claudio and Laura exceeded our expectations in every way. Starting at the pre-trip communications to the travel logistics from Panama to the actual stay on their comfortable and stylish catamaran - every aspect was delightful. When we booked, Claudio welcomes us immediately an arranged our transportation from our hotel to the Port and then to the catamaran via lance (water taxi). He made sure to let us know to bring passports and told us how much the trip and Kuna Yala port fee would cost down to the exact amount. Claudio was great at messaging via What’sApp and was very response to all messages. Claudio met us at an island where the lance dropped us and where Cush was anchored about 50 to 60 meters from the shore. He picked on his dingy and took us the catamaran where we had our first chance to meet wonderful Laura. She treated us freshly brewed espresso and a lite breakfast to take the edge off since our pickup from hotel was at 530am. We then got a chance to spend an hour our so on the beach while they prepared of first of many incredible meals on Cush. Our first lunch of freshly grilled lobster and baked bread and salad set the bar for several amazing meals they prepared. Laura is an great chef and everything was delicious and beautifully served on the table. Everything is fresh caught and we believe it was the best stretch of meals w’ve every eaten over a three day period. They ate with us at each meal and shared their lifetime of experiences at sea and traveling around the world. It was clear that they are passionate about their lifestyle and genuinely wanted us to share it with them as their guests. They were eager to learn about us and our life as well. The conversation over wine and beers will be something we will never forget. Claudio took us to several different islands where we could snorkel (they have really good gear to use) and swim and visit the Kuna people. It was breathtakingly beautiful to be on the deck soaking in the sun and feeling the wind while enjoying the spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea. Cush was plenty spacious for my wife and I and we never felt crowded. The boat has a fresh water reverse osmosis system capable of producing 80 liters an hour. Plenty of clean and refreshing water to drink and shower. Our room had a sink and a king sided bed. It was so quiet at night it was as if we were completely alone on the catamaran. In conclusion, if you’ve ever considered anything like this Claudio and Laura and Cush are the trip to charter. They treated us as family and as if we were sharing their home (and not merely paying guests). In fact at time we felt overwhelmed with their generosity and desire to make us happy while on board. It was a complete adventure and we feel that the experience will stay with us the rest of our lives. Thank you for making it superb, June 2019

Abbiamo appena passato due giorni indimenticabili sul catamarano di Claudio e Laura . Siamo ancora senza parole per la bellezza del posto ,ancora lontano dal turismo di massa, e per il tipo di vacanza sulla barca : il modo migliore per vedere le San Blas . Per di più, con due marinai provetti come loro ci si sente sempre sicuri . Pulizia ineccepibile, cucina di mare di alto livello. Grazie di cuore Claudio e Laura .
