About San Blas Frontera

About Us

It’s the passion that keeps us going forward

Experiencing the beauty of the San Blas islands is what gets us out of bed in the morning. We’ve visited basically every single one of the more than 365 islands, snorkeled the most beautiful reefs and have climbed an endless number of coconut trees. And still we can’t get enough of this piece of land that we call home.

It is our passion to share our experiences with you and to provide you an unforgettable and authentic impression of our beautiful native islands!

We are a dedicated young team of Kuna people from the San Blas islands who have, over the course of the past 10 years, already welcomed thousands of happy guests from all over the world to the San Blas islands.

Our mission

We are on a mission to share the beauty of our home country while respecting our Kuna heritage and mother nature. We want to provide you with a unique and authentic impression of our simple lifestyle paired with an unforgettable island adventure. And we believe in the magic of small groups for a true off the beaten path experience!

Our promise

We look back on over ten years of welcoming guests to San Blas. We are committed to offering a professional service and an authentic experience to our guests while supporting local communities. As a 100% local, Kuna company where everyone is of Kuna heritage and grew up in San Blas with our culture, we know the islands and local customs by heart.

Our story

After numerous travels across the globe, our founder realized the beauty of his home and decided to build a place where guests could not only enjoy a tropical island but also praise the beauty of a simple life and get in touch with an ancient culture.
Having successfully managed Isla Iguana for many years, we have just a few years started the company San Blas Frontera and moved to a new island, where we now welcome our guests.

What we offer

Authentic travel experiences

Our cabins and restaurant

We run a small number of traditional Kuna cabins and a restaurant on one of the most beautiful islands in the San Blas archipelago with private or dorm rooms right on the beach and delicious meals 3-times a day by our longstanding Kuna chef. Our cuisine is based around fish and seafood complemented by local products..

San Blas island Day Trips and Overnight Stays

We offer day trips to the San Blas islands and overnight stays on our island. Of course we also organize everything around a visit to the San Blas islands, including the arrival from Panama City and return.

Border crossings

We also offer multiple-day island hopping trips across the border from Panama to Colombia or vice versa that take you along all 365 San Blas islands and where you can experience some of the remotest islands.

Our part in this

We’re here to make your trip extraordinary

Organizing a visit to San Blas can put you through all kinds of emotions. Everyone’s dream, but seemingly impossible to visit on your own. A ton of offers, but no information on who you’d be going with and what you’re paying for. So much written online, but still a lack of information. This is why our ambition is affordability, accessibility, simplicity and inspiration for YOUR San Blas trip, giving you the chance to experience more for less.
Transport to/from P.C.

Our tours start/end in Carti, San Blas, but we help you to get there: we can organize the transport incl. pick-up/drop-off at your hotel in Panama City (no commission charged)

Not an agency

We are not an agency sitting in a nice office in P.C. but instead we run the island cabins & boat services ourselves, so at all times of the tour you are with us & our employees.1)

No booking fees

Zero booking fees or deposit during any stage of the buying process on San Blas Frontera. Pay on the day of the trip, in cash. It’s that simple.

Small number of guests and no one-size-fits-all tourism: We know all our guests personally and work hard to accommodate your individual needs.
No surprises: at all stages we inform you what our packages include and what additional costs you will have to expect (not much, most is covered)
Fair prices

We can’t offer the trips for free but we aim to make it as affordable as possible: no marketing investments, no office in P.C., no middle-men.

1) During our tours and the trips to/from Colombia, we visit restaurants/islands that are owned by other Kuna families and not affiliated with us.

About Us

As a purely local and indigenous business, we offer authentic day trips and overnight stays in our traditional Kuna cabins on the San Blas islands in Panama and multiple-day boat trips across the Panamanian-Colombian border (boats from Panama to Colombia and boats from Colombia to Panama) as the local alternative to sailing the San Blas islands.
