Beautiful Capurgana

We done the trip with African Queen and don't regret it at all. We were worried about getting seasickness and were recommended this boat because the trip avoids the long crossing to Cartagena. We did still get a little sick however that part of the trip was much shorter than it could have been. The reservation and general service was fast and well organised. African is quite small and we were part of a group of 10. We didn't feel it was crowded and had a great time with Captain Rudy and the rest of the passengers. As an added bonus Sapzurro and Capurgana are amazing places to stay after the trip had finished. We ended up staying 3 nights at the end of the trip just to chill out some more.

Sail with African Queen for a great trip in San Blas. We took the boat because we didn't want sail in the bad weather to Cartagena. Instead we took the trip to Sapzurro with captain Rudy and had an unforgettable time visiting the San Blas islands.
