Arts, Crafts and Paradise on the Thread Caravan Panama!

If you've always thought that your previous sailing excursions around paradise have been... a little short of textiles, then the Thread Caravan Panama Tour is the ideal bucket list vacation to add to your shortlist!

That's because this breathtaking tropical voyage around the Caribbean Sea and Panama’s Guna Yala islands puts the focus on much more than just sightseeing. The purpose of this trip is to immerse yourself in a culture that many outsiders will never have heard of – the rather secretive Guna people.

And boy, do the Guna women know their way around textiles! With the Thread Caravan Panama tour, you'll get to spend one-on-one time with these living legends, learning the tricks of the trade and how to make world-famous mola textiles. They're much better than yet another one of Gran's home-knitted Christmas jumpers, for sure!

Holy Mola! Tell Me Mora!

This four-night journey of a lifetime begins with a stay in a charming boutique hotel in Panama City’s historic Casco Viejo neighbourhood. The next day, you'll set sail for the Caribbean’s picturesque Guna Yala coastal region.

Here you'll jump from island to island (not literally - unless you have seriously profound leg strength) and immerse yourself in the local community and tranquilo turquoise waters! And whilst you learn about their culture and textile traditions, perhaps you can share a yarn or two of your own?

Of course, there's ample material to immerse yourself in the more traditional activities you'd normally associate with sailing around paradise. Swimming, snorkelling, eating delicious Panamanian seafood, drinking wine and making a whole host of new friends on idyllic beaches.

It all sounds top cloth, doesn't it?  Far more rewarding and exotic than an arts and crafts lesson at your local community hall, that’s for sure!
