Your San Blas Island Adventure starts here

Step into another world with our 3-day island hopping boat trip from Panama to Colombia.

Forget sailing through rough seas, with our trip you will be spending the majority of your time exploring tropical islands and an ancient culture. We travel in a typical speedboat along all 365 of the San Blas islands, taking you to uninhabited, tropical islands that noone else goes to, to colorful coral reefs and to Kuna villages where you can get up close with our indigenous Kuna culture. Time on the boat is limited to 2-3 hours per day, instead you’ll be soaking up the sun and beaches!

What to expect

We travel in a speed boat from island to island, starting in Cartí in San Blas, Panama, to Sapzurro in Colombia. Travel times between islands are short – we want to maximize island time.

The trip fare includes the boat ride, all meals, accommodation in traditional cabins on two islands, stops on islands and villages and support for crossing the border into Colombia.

    “I opted to use the services of a Kuna-based company, San Blas Frontera, to be sure that my money would end up staying within the community. As well as meeting the Kuna communities, I was also lucky enough to enjoy the beautiful, sandy beach with not a care in the world. A different sunny island for each day of the year – definitely something I could get used to!”
