4 Things to Consider When Choosing a Sail Tour

Jun 17, 2021

If you’re planning to book a catamaran this summer, you’re already heading in the right direction. This is going to be so much fun! What you need is to get away from it all. What better way to do this than to literally climb aboard a boat and get away from land all together? Spending time out on the water is associated with numerous health benefits, including positive emotions and a boost in mental health.

If you’re ready to enjoy the increased wellness that time on the water provides, it is time you book a sailing tour. But, which one? Nicaragua is so beautiful and it seems like there are many sail tour companies offering to let you enjoy paradise. Can they all back up this claim or will some of them disappoint you? Here’s a few things to consider before you book your day out on the water.

#1 Choose the type of vessel. A boat is not just a boat! Your two main options are a monohull sailboat and a catamaran. You need to ensure that you and the other guests you’ve invited will all have plenty of room on board. Beyond this, you want to be able to actually walk around on deck and enjoy your time on the boat. In both of these aspects, a catamaran is a better choice. It has a much larger deck surface area and its design means you won’t be battered around by the waves.

#2 Pick out your destination. Where do you want the boat to actually take you? This sailing trip is the perfect excuse to enjoy an upclose visit to a beach you’ve never seen before. When you start your catamaran trip in San Juan del Sur, you can take a ride to Isla Anciana, Playa Redonda, Gigante, Bolaños Island, Playa Brasilito, and Playa Trébol. 

#3 You need food and drinks. You’ll be out all day, so obviously you need to eat and drink. You don’t want to book your trip with a company that doesn’t offer anything! Food service should be offered so you can enjoy fruit, seafood, wine, and more.

#4 They should offer plenty of other activities. Do you plan on lying in the sun all day or would you like some other activities to enjoy? Make sure you book your trip with a sailing company that gives you the option. Boogie boards, balls, and snorkels are sure to fill your day with one fun activity after another!
