Florida to Panama Route

We are leaving for Panama and on to Ecuador in the next few days and we are going to make a more direct route with only a few stops along the way. Maybe the San Blas Islands and then the Las Perlas Islands on the Pacific side of Panama before heading to Bahia De Caraquez, Ecuador where I have lived for 7 years.
My question is:
What is the most comfortable route in your opinion for this trip? This is my wife and sons first trip and I want it to be an enjoyable experience for them even if it means twice the distance to get there.
Thanks for your opinions in advance.

I have read about the inside route west of Cuba. Currents and winds are favarable depending on the time of year. One of the sailing Mags just had an article about the route last month. I would also get a copy of Jimmy"s criusing guide.

you'll have to excuse me here, but I simply can't let this go.

You say you are a few days short of taking your family on this very long voyage and you haven't done any route planning??? You're kidding,right!
