Panama: San Blas Islands

Visit Us

In contrast to the West-Indian influenced Bocas del Toro islands, the archipelago of San Blas hosts the indigenous culture of the Kuna Yala indians, who have enjoyed autonomy since the 1920s. The string of 400 islands includes tiny islets with a just few coconut palms to over forty which are inhabited. The Kuna Yala maintain a deeply traditional, communal lifestyle based at their bamboo, palm-thatched residences, surviving from fishing and agriculture. These conservative people welcome sensitive visitors to their gorgeous palm-dotted beaches; a few days here is a unique experience.

What our experts say

But because it’s so remote and beautiful, providing an experience of what it must be like to be marooned on a desert island, a visit to San Blas is  well worth it. San Blas is only suitable for adventurous visitors but for the right person it should be a winner.
