San Blas: a dream destination in Panama

Can you imagine being able to visit a different island every day of the year? That is what San Blas offers you, an archipelago of 365 islands located in the Caribbean Sea, northeast of Panama. This place is a natural paradise of white sand, coconut trees and crystal clear waters, where you can enjoy the tranquility, beauty and culture of the Guna Indians, the original inhabitants of this region.

San Blas is an ideal destination for nature and adventure lovers, as it offers a wide variety of activities and experiences. Here are some of the reasons why you should travel to San Blas and how to do it.

  • Get to know the Guna culture: The Guna are an indigenous ethnic group that lives on about 50 islands of San Blas, maintaining their traditions, language and autonomy. The Guna are very hospitable and will welcome you with a smile in their bohíos, their thatched and reed houses. You will learn about their history, their worldview, their art and crafts, especially the famous molas, colorful fabrics representing geometric figures or animals.
  • Snorkeling or diving: San Blas is a paradise for lovers of the underwater world, as its waters are home to a great diversity of marine species, such as tropical fish, turtles, starfish, corals and even dolphins. You can snorkel or dive in different points of the archipelago, such as the Dog Island reef, the Isla Perro shipwreck or the natural pools of Cayos Holandeses.
  • Sailing: One of the best ways to explore San Blas is sailing around its islands. You can rent a sailboat with or without crew and tour the archipelago at your own pace, stopping at the islands you like, enjoying the scenery and the sun. You can also hire a sailing tour from Panama or Colombia, which includes lodging, meals and activities.
  • Relax in a cabin over the water: If you are looking for a unique and romantic experience, there is nothing better than staying in a cabin over the water in one of the islands of San Blas. You can wake up to the sound of the waves, watch the sunrise and sunset from your private terrace and feel in complete harmony with nature. There are different lodging options over the water, from rustic cabins to bungalows with private bathrooms.
