Lady Jane is a Morgan 38 Ketch sailing in the San Blas Islands since more than 10 years. She is well known by the Guna Indians and his captain is appreciated by everyone throughout the archipelago.
Lady Jane is a small but roomy and comfortable boat in the US construction tradition. She offers 1 double kayak, 2 double cabins for the guests and 2 heads. The saloon is comfortable and the galley generous.
Roberto is Italian & speaks Spanish, English and even some French. He cooks great meals on basis of local products and catch of the day. He loves the sea and also to show you the Guna culture and the best snorkeling spots. Roberto “lives” in San Blas since a decade!

Hola Jaime, Me gustaría agradecerte y felicitarte por el viaje que nos ayudaste a organizar para San Blas. Nos ha encantado la experiencia y nos ha encantado el velero Lady Jane así como su tripulación Rapha y Cota, súper atentos con nosotros. Si tú no me hubieses ofrecido esa opción este viaje no hubiese existido nunca y ha valido muchísimo la pena. Gracias por todo una vez más. Todo fue perfecto.

San Blas Sailing with Rafio and Cota on the Lady Jane
We visited San Blas for 3 days in January 2015 and stayed on the Lady Jane. Our host and hostess, Rafio and Cota, were terrific. They started by asking us what our priorities were and then proceeded to custom plan the 3 days to fit our desires. The boat was quite comfortable, the food was absolutely fresh and deliciously prepared, Rafio and Cota were careful to preserve our privacy, and their language skills were excellent.
San Blas is beautiful. The Kuna Indians are very interesting, doing a valiant job of preserving their culture in a changing world. We found them friendly and happy to share, primarily because Rafio and Cota have such a good relationship with them.
The trip is not a luxury resort experience and anyone hoping for that would be disappointed. It is terrific for lovers of sailing and people interested in a unique cultural experience. Traveling by boat is essential to go anywhere in San Blas, and provides flexibility and comfort in an area where there is almost no infrastructure for tourists.

Hi. Just for back from 3 days on lady Jane. It was an absolute joy. San blas sailing were outstanding, and Ricardo (the captain) is a real character who went out of his way to make our few days there special. He is very knowledgable about the kuna and a great cook. He even taught us to sail a bit. Worth every penny! 2 weeks in Panama and this was the highlight by a country mile. The boat is rustic and charming and the islands are bliss.
