Scattered into the Caribbean Sea just off the north-west coast of Panama, you will ﬁnd the fascinating San Blas Archipelago. These 378 islands are a biological treasure trove, untouched and mostly uninhabited – save for the tall, waving palms and occasional tree crab. Here you will ﬁnd your bliss and the ultimate version of paradise.
With powdery white sand beaches, tall swaying palms and impossibly clear, warm sea waters, the San Blas islands are your postcard images of paradise, brought to reality. The tourism on the larger island of San Blas is run by the native Kuna people, with very little interference from national government so as to best preserve the natural state of these islands.
San Blas is world renowned for pristine sailing conditions – the best way to travel between islands and get a true feel of paradise, while avid ﬁshermen are spoiled for choice between trying their hand at catching the famed marlin, sailﬁsh or wahoo when ﬁshing with the local Kuna.
Due to the protection afforded by the coral reefs and sand banks, the San Blas islands also offer excellent wind conditions for both wind surfers and experienced kite boarders, while a whole new world of unspoiled beauty and rainbow coral reefs lies beneath the warm, tranquil waters, begging to be explored.
