Colombia to Panama: 3-day island hopping tour

Get to know all 365 islands of the San Blas islands in Panama on this 3-day boat trip from Colombia to Panama: Relax on picture-perfect tropical beaches, explore authentic indigenous villages and sleep on deserted islands

Our most popular trip brings you in three adventure filled days from the laid-back and barely visited village of Sapzurro in Colombia across the Darien gap to the stunning beauty of the San Blas islands and further on to the bustling metropole of Panama City. We travel 1-4 hours per day in our fast boat, explore different islands and Kuna villages along the way and sleep in traditional Kuna cabins on the islands. Don’t expect any luxury – it will be rustic and rough, but with a small group of like-minded people on board, knowledgable local guides at your service and a sense for adventure, this is a trip you will never forget.

Day 1 - Afternoon & Night
It's a Robinson Crusoe kinda' life
Arrive on a gorgeous palm-tree covered island, your home for the night. This is the closest you will ever get to feel like Robinson Crusoe. Have delicious dinner, enjoy the tranquility and the amazing star-covered sky (not spoilt by any lights) and fall asleep in your traditional Kuna cabin with the sound of the waves and the wind in the palm trees

More islands, more islands
Hop on the boat and enjoy the numeours inhabited islands while heading west. Along the way, stop to explore other islands and a Kuna village where you'll have a traditional Kuna lunch. During the ride, make sure to have your camera ready. Maybe we can spot some turtles or dolphins accompanying us

One day in paradise
Wake up on the island, with the turqouise water right in front of your cabin, knowing that you will have the whole day ahead of you on this gorgeous paradise island. Swim or snorkel the crystal-clear waters (ask us for snorkeling equipment), wander around the island, relax on the beach, laze in a hammock - and of course enjoy yummy local breakfast and lunch.
Day 3 - Afternoon
Time to say goodbye
It's time to leave the islands behind. Leave in the boat towards Carti, where our trip ends and a driver brings you back to Panama City in a breath-taking ride across the jungle-covered San Blas hills
