Puerto Lindo (the tiniest sailing village) was our home for 3 days whilst we waiting for our boat. Here we mingled with the sailors learning lots about boats, lighthouses and round the world ship voyages! Sunbathed on the beautiful surrounding islands. Hans and Edina (the owners of the apartment) became our surrogate parents during our stay!
Finally Dav-id - our rum downing, French chef, DJing, mast swinging captain arrived with our boat 'Tango' (A 15m yacht) First stop were the San Blas Islands. These were desolate - postcard perfect coral islands inhabited and run by the Kuna (you can't even pick a coconut, without being charged a doller!!) So we spent 2 days fishing (Emma caught a 75cm tuna like fish!!) swimming, snorkeling, BBQing (lobsters/crabs and fish!!) really amazing!!
Then we hit the seas heading for cartegena! Sailing was awesome - lots of speed but it was very rough!! our night watches were pretty exciting with either rough seas or dodging cargo ships to contend with!
Finally after 5days at sea we arrived in Cartegena (Columbia)!
