Drove there from Panama, booked with San Blas Panama Tours. All in All a good choice of a tour company to go with. Worthwhile for a weekend if you are here in Panama for a week. Amazing beaches, crystal clear waters and an experience of a lifetime to swim in the middle of the sea in the natural "swimming" pool.

We went on the two night three day tour to SanBlas with Panama travel. The company is part of a massive tourist machine, emptying large numbers of tourists onto the islands every day and scooping them up a day or so later. Vehicles scour Panama City from 0500, picking up tourists from back packers hostels and hotels, stopping via a... More

The ocean is beautiful, complete silence because its a territory guarde by the nativo Kunas, there is not western Civilization and they control everything that happens there. It is like being in another world. They have fresh fish, crab , lobster in abundance and local beer. Very rústic and hard to get to . For the adventure seekers and people... More

One of the most amazing experiences of my life. If they are to Panama forget the center channel or the malls, go straight to San Blas. You will be warmly welcomed by the Indians Guna Yala. They are amazing people! There're over 360 amazing isle with

Beautiful Islands and beautiful people. We booked through a company and stayed for 2 days and 2 nights. Our first day was great! We went snorkeling and went to Starfish beach/island and got to see Starfish. We also visited another island. At night was a little rough as it was hard for us to sleep at night, but we got... More

Those islands are so beautiful that they even make you forget the awful road that you need to endure as to get there, the water is calm and emerald, the beach is pristine white, and you get to see fishes all around you while you do snorkeling, there is even a natural pool nearby that is just wonderful, you should...

My wife and I had to get from Cartagena to Costa Rica - and what better way than to go via sailboat and make a stop in Panama? So that is what we did. After a little research we booked two spots on a 50ft sailboat that would spend a couple days at sea and a couple of days in... More

We came out here with a group of 4 to spend a day and night on the sail boat Nomad Sail with Captain Carles Paolo. From the start I didn't really know what to expect, so it was a bit of an adventure. From the ride out to San Blas through the roller coaster of a mountain road, to the... More

I'm writing this review hoping people will get on the bandwagon and recognise the garbage problem in the San Blas. The locals need help disposing of the garbage and the government and/or tourist agencies need to help them. It really ruins the experience for everyone and I feel sad for the locals that have to live in a tip bc... More
