Sailing Adventures

With vast Pacific and Caribbean coasts, wild rivers and vast inland lakes, it's no surprise that Panama and Nicaragua are seen as world-class sailing destinations. Float along the jungle-clad Chagres River, traverse the iconic Panama Canal or sail around Nicaragua's Corn Islands in a traditional Miskito boat. There's plenty of unique ways to add a little sailing adventure to your Central American vacation.

At Vapues Travel, we're always on the lookout for sailing experiences with a difference, from interesting day-trips to overnight catamaran cruises around the Caribbean. We work with some of the finest small-scale operators and local crews you'll find in Nicaragua and Panama, so you can sit back, relax and watch the world glide by.

Take a look at a few of our favourite sailing experiences to whet your appetite.


To explore the vast archipelago, we suggest traveling by private catamaran with an experienced crew; providing a high standard security equipment and service. Discover islands dotted in the calm Caribbean Sea, the impressive marine nature and palm tree lined white sand deserted beaches.


Discover the Nicaraguan Caribbean on a 40-foot handmade boat, expertly navigated by the Miskito people. You will be heading out to the outer reef of Little Corn Island. Snorkel gear is provided.
