Explore the beautiful San Blas community on kayaks! Paddle from one Island to the other and hike, discover, snorkel and relax on stunning beaches of 5 different Islands.

 

The San Blas Archipelago, spreads along the northwest of the isthmus with more than 350 islands. These Panama Islands in the Caribbean, spread from Colon Province to Colombia in a long and narrow strip close to the continental area. The Region from the islands in the ocean to the mountains on the main land of Panama defines as San Blas or Guna Yala, the homeland of the Guna Natives. Gunas are well known for their clothing, bright and colorful fabric panels, which they manufacture using the technique of reverse application, to create their female dresses.They are politically a nation within Panama with their own language, culture, laws and territory. However, they are also Panamanians.There wasn´t a single road connecting Guna Yala with the rest of Panama (not until 2007). Gunas’ efforts to preserve their identity, and their control over San Blas has made it possible to keep this region as the pristine paradise it is today.

SEASON:

San Blas Islands Panama kayaking is a year-round activity. Take a vacation on Panamas Caribbean Islands, you have the choice of the San Blas Islands Panama and the Bocas del Toro Islands.During the Dry Season, from January through March, the North winds settles diminishing chances of sand flies and chances of rain. The water is cooler than the other months.Although it is good to snorkel it´s not the best time for it. Occasionally wind and waves might be tough for a less experienced paddler.  During the Rainy Season, from April-May through December there is rain, although it is very unusual to have rain that keeps us from paddling and snorkeling. The water is warmer and with greater visibility for snorkeling. We can expect days without waves at all. And yes, we might have to trust more in our insect repellent than the wind to take care of sand flies.
