Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, capacity for 6 guests

Enjoy a dream holiday in the paradise in our sailboat with capacity for 6 people

The stay includes exclusive attention by the crew, breakfast, lunch and dinner, full cleaning service, bedding, excursions to several of the most beautiful islands of the archipelago, snorkeling and fishing equipment.

Wake up with a swim in the sea, sleep under a million stars, walk on deserted islands... we will make your holidays unforgettable.

The Winfli is not just a place to rest, it is a complete experience for the senses. We have a private cabin, kitchen, toilet, living room and of course our wonderful deck, the best of the terraces from which to observe the majestic landscape that the islands of San Blas offer us.

We have the possibility of moving between the different islands sailing or with motor, so that you can appreciate the diversity of the Guna Yala region, its fauna, its people, its customs, its magic.

The sailboat is a large common space where you can rest, take photographs, contemplate the clearest skies you can imagine.

We offer snorkel equipment so you can dive into the reef and swim among corals, tropical fish, starfish, rays ... the sea in Guna Yala is a constant surprise. We also have fishing equipment.

We can also live the unique experience of sailing among the islands, pushed only by the wind.

We love to cook and share, but if you dare you can also use the kitchen, which is peculiar: the stove and the oven swing to cook even while sailing.

Guna Yala is a place to disconnect from your day to day, meditate, sunbathe, contemplate the sunrise or the sunset, enjoy an aperitif with the sweet sound of the waves.

As is normal, being a sailboat, we will live together during your stay. We love being good hosts, letting our guests enjoy their privacy but also advising them routes, walks, sharing our recipes, accompanying them to meet our Guna friends so they can know their culture and their vision of life.

Guna Yala is a magical place. We will move around in calm seas, in the islands you will be able to drink the water of the freshest coconuts, eat the tastiest lobsters, we will share experiences with the inhabitants of the archipelago, our neighbors the Gunas, travelers and nomads of the wind.

You won't find in the world a place as virgin as this one. The true experience of visiting the Caribbean without the overwhelm of the resorts and the crowd. Come to swim, meditate, sail, enjoy the underwater world...

We assure you will spend unforgettable moments in a unique setting.

From the cosmopolitan and Caribbean city of Panama, it takes 3 hours to reach the accommodation. Write to us and we will provide you with all the necessary information.

Once on the boat we have the possibility of moving to the islands by a smaller boat, and use the boat itself for longer trips.

Living on a boat means living comfortably but practically, because in addition to a houseboat is a means of transport at sea, so the distribution of the interior in general is designed for it.

About Ingrid Rivero Luis

Hello! My name is Ingrid and I live on a ship. I was born in the Canary Islands ... always with the sea on the horizon.

Years ago I settled in the Guna Yala Archipelago, better known as San Blas, in Panama.

Outdoor life is my goal. Dare to come and I will love to show you the paradise and the culture with which I live. Disconnect, integrate yourself in nature and paint yourself with the turquoises of the Caribbean Sea.

Ingrid Rivero Luis purchased this boat in 2008

The best experience of our lives

  • 5 of 5

We spend one week with Ingrid and Bruno at Winfli and it was absolutely wonderful. They are lovely hosts, always taking care of us and wanting to help. We made several excursions to Coco Bandero, Holandeses, Chichimé... we were snorkelling in the middle of nowhere surrounded only by uninhabited islands of white sand... the food was awesome as well, lobsters, fish, paella... we also had the oportunity of making a barbecue in one of the uninhabited islands under a sky full of stars. This is an experience of a lifetime that I recommend to everybody, and you won't easily find better hosts than Ingrid and Bruno.

Sun, sea and palm trees

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time with our señor capitán and his native helper Braulio. The captain is clearly an experienced sailor, and he knows the San Blas islands like the back of his hand. He is also a bit of a self-taught chef, who delighted us daily with extremely tasty and fresh seafood dishes. The playlist on the boat's sound system provided a groovy and appropriately Latin soundtrack to our journey, as did the many cool stories told by the captain from time to time. If you enjoy palm beaches, clear blue water, being 'off the grid' for awhile and are into sailing at all (or at least into telling the folks back home you've been on a Caribbean sailing trip :-)), then this is definitely the thing for you.

Volvería al Winfli mañana mismo!

  • 5 of 5

La primera mañana despertamos con delfines nadando alrededor del barco, pudimos incluso nadar con ellos... vimos mantas, tiburones, arrecifes de coral, peces de mil colores. Bruno e Ingrid conocen Guna Yala muy bien, y nos llevaron a los sitios más espectaculares y recónditos del archipiélago. A pesar de nuestras dudas iniciales, creo que fue buena idea escoger un barco para nuestra estancia, y el Winfli fue la mejor elección, muy cómodo, con una tripulación de lo más encantadora y buenos conocedores de la región. Nunca imaginé que pudiera existir un lugar tan virgen en el mundo, es algo único, de cuento. Lo recuerdo como una de las semanas más maravillosas de mi vida y si pudiera volvería mañana mismo.

El paraíso hecho realidad.

  • 5 of 5

La mejor experiencia para viajar, el lugar habla por sí solo pero poder disfrutarlo desde un velero lo convierte en una aventura maravillosa. Los anfitriones son los mejores que se pueden pedir, amables, cercanos, atentos,... ¡¡hasta me enseñaron a pescar!! Si te gusta viajar y disfrutar son la mejor opción para unas vacaciones inolvidables.

Eternamente agradecida, ¡¡repetiré!!.

Una experiencia maravillosa

  • 5 of 5

Me alojé en el Winfli durante 5 días con unos amigos y la experiencia fue maravillosa. Las islas son un auténtico paraíso donde disfrutar del Caribe y de sus aguas (nadando, pescando, haciendo snorkel...), o simplemente donde relajarse y desconectar de todo. Se nota la gran experiencia de la tripulación, tanto a la hora de navegar como en el trato que dan a sus huéspedes. En el barco estuvimos muy cómodos, a pesar de ser un grupo grande. La comida, sana y muy rica. Nos ofrecieron mucho pescado fresco y pudimos probar la langosta que pescan los locales. Ingrid y Bruno están totalmente integrados con los habitantes de las islas, y resultó muy interesante conocer de su mano el modo de vida y la cultura de los Kunas. Guardo grandes recuerdos de la sensación mágica de navegar en velero, de la vida marina que se podía observar alrededor del barco por las noches, de las islitas que visitamos, de los buenos ratos que pasamos y del último atardecer en San Blas. ¡Fue un viaje inolvidable! ¡Muchas gracias Winfli!
