Speed boat to Colombia or to Panama

3-days island hopping through the San Blas islands

Special offer

Spend an additional night after your 3-day trip from Panama to Colombia or before your 3-day trip from Colombia to Panama in the remote Kuna community Armila right at the border to Colombia (45 USD per night incl. food). This village is idyllically nestled on the mainland between the hills of the Darien forest and right on the riverbanks of a jungle river and the Caribbean Sea. As it is only reachable via sea, it is a very unique experience not many people get to see! Ask us for details >

We offer two routes:

  1. Carti, San Blas to Sapzurro, Colombia

everything behind

Seriously, don’t miss out. I took the boat to Colombia and this trip not only let me experience the amazing San Blas islands with their unique Kuna culture but brought me to remote, otherwise hard to reach places in Colombia that are definitely not on everyone’s travel map.

Visit unreal destinations

Travel with us from Panama City to the quiet border region of Sapzurro in Colombia or the other way with the boat from Colombia to Panama City. Either way, exciting places, paradise islands and adventures are awaiting you!
The trip with the boat to Colombia starts in Panama City with a car ride to Carti on the Caribbean side of Panama. From there we travel by boat along the coast and all 365 San Blas islands across the border to Colombia. On the way we explore untouched islands, visit Kuna villages and sleep on the islands before ending the trip in Sapzurro, Colombia.

The boat to Panama starts in Sapzrro, Colombia, with a boat ride into Panama and through the San Blas archipelago. Along the way, we visit islands, villages and sleep on the islands. On the last day, a car will bring you from Carti to Panama City, where the trip ends.

Your San Blas Adventure is waiting

Always dreamed of truly getting away and exploring places most people never get to know? Come with us to explore the most beautiful islands in the worlds, get to know our ancient indigenous culture and see what everyday life is like in one of the most blessed places on earth. Our 3-day trips across the border offer the perfect off-the-beaten-path adventure.

What’s in it for you

Small groups

The world opens up a little more for a small group than it does for a large group. Our groups are small enough to feel like you’re exploring a destination independently, but big enough to create a good social vibe.

Authentic travel

Connecting curious travellers with our indigenous culture is an essential part of our identity. Our trips embrace authentic accommodation and travelling with locals to bring you face to face with our fascinating culture and awe-inspiring wildlife.

Price & Value

We believe an unforgettable travel experience doesn’t have to be expensive. Since we operate the trips ourselves we’re able to deliver you the adventure of a lifetime at a fraction of the cost.

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 better alternative to sailing the San Blas islands.
