Let’s hear what our guests say
As a fairly new company, we are still in the process of growing and collecting reviews on Tripadvisor. We value every feedback, good or bad because it helps us to grow and to become a better partner for you! We are especially proud that our guests have been giving us an outstanding feedback!
Blog Posts of previous guests
Read what our guests have experienced on their trips with San Blas Frontera. Unless otherwise mentioned, guests did not receive any discounts for writing about us – we believe that voluntary reviews and articles are most valuable. The texts are written in different languages, we highly recommend translating them!
One thing that you will see is that every single one of our trips is different. Since we travel in small groups, we are flexible to adapt the tour to the dynamic of the group and make sure our guests leave us happy and full of unique experiences.

“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!”

“It was a fun three-day trip full of authentic experiences and impressions that are rarely found anywhere else in the world.”
Anna & Chris, Germany
Anna Chris have quit their jobs to travel around the world. In August 2018, they joined our 3-day trip to Colombia. Together with a group of fellow travelers, they followed our invitation to join a Kuna ceremony which certainly was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for them.
“We had a unique and unforgettable evening and are very grateful that we could be part of it!”
