Jacaranda crew in Bolivia

Chuck and Linda of SY Jacaranda are incredibly well known amongst the cruising community (South Pacific in particular) for their detailed and useful cruising guides which they share free of charge online and for their excellent blog.

They have been contributing to noonsite for many years and have consistently shared important island updates and new information pertaining to cruisers.
