Tropical Island Paradises Like No Other!

The San Blas Islands are an archipelago in Panana consisting of approximately 370 islands and cays, of which only 49 are inhabited. The islands are strung out along the Caribbean coast, north of the Isthmus of Panama, east of the Panama Canal and stretch nearly all the way to the Colombian border.

On the 49 inhabited islands live this Kuna Indians who are a unique and independent indigenous group. They are not ruled by either the Colombian or Panama governments and have their own economic system, language, customs, culture, dress and music.

The area is extremely popular for sailing, as it is known for its beauty and lack of hurricanes. The islands are surrounded by ancient coral reefs which provide some of the most amazing snorkeling opportunities in the Americas. The best time for snorkeling is April – June.

Please note: Transfers to and from Panama City cost $5 per person.
