An Idyllic Archipelago

The San Blas Islands is an archipelago of tropical islands located off the north coast of Panama. Surrounded by the warm and crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean Sea, considered to be a top destination in Panama due to the well-protected natural beauty and the native Guna people who reside here.  

Once you arrive at the islands, embrace the local customs and laid-back nature. Instead of commercialised hotels, you can expect thatched huts, tents and hammocks. If you are keen to see other islands - sleeping on a sailboat is also a great choice. Indulge in freshly caught seafood such as red snapper or lobster served with coconut rice and fresh fruit, prepared with different local spices and ingredients.  

When it comes to things to do, you’re spoiled for choice. Go for a swim in the surrounding turquoise waters, stop off at Perry Islands for snorkelling, or take a day trip to the breathtaking islands of Banedub and Robeson. Visitors can opt for daily trips, stay overnight, or island hop on a sailboat for multiple days.  

Holidays to Panama start from £2,949pp. Get in touch to find out prices for your perfect trip.

The Area

Isla Robinson Crusoe is one of the more well-known islands, once home to the marooned sailor Alexander Selkirk who inspired the fictional character of Robinson Crusoe. The most isolated island is Isla Chichimei. The island has no electricity which encourages visitors to live ‘off-grid’ and even sleep beneath the stars. Isla Perro Beach (translated to Dog Beach) is known for having the clearest waters for snorkelling and a gunboat shipwreck close to the shore creates a vibrant coral reef to explore. 

Best Time to Go

The best time to visit the San Blas islands is during the dry season, which usually lasts between December-April, while October is the wettest month. The average temperature is around 24°C.
