The temperature stays roughly 80° f (27°c) no matter the month. You will find some high humidity no matter the month, although this didn’t bother us much since we were continuously in and out of the water all day long. This group of islands are owned and inhabited by the guna yala indigenous tribe of panama, who have spent centuries protecting and supporting themselves on these lands. Immerse yourself in the authentic island life- nubesidup is a more traditional and smaller island to stay and perfect if you are looking to laze around under a coconut tree with a book. One night in perro chico islands in san blas - all included. It hiddes just in front of an amazing snorkelling spot, a shipwreck full of tiny colored fishes.

However, we did see multiple sting rays swimming around the islands. The trip from panama city to san blas islands is pretty straight forward. Basically, a 4×4 vehicle picks you up from your hotel in panama city and drives to puerto de carti. From there, you board a small boat that transports you from the mainland to the islands. We recommend you join a tour that organizes your transportation from panama city to san blas islands. When you factor in the cost of renting a vehicle, insurance, fuel, overnight parking and boat transportation from carti to the islands, it makes sense to join an organized tour.

As a result, it's hard to simply choose one island and stay put for a week or two. Many people who come to the san blas islands want to experience as much of this region as possible, which is why we offer multi-day san blas tours. I don’t think I have ever been so relaxed in my entire life! I only wish the sleeping islands were a bit more natural – sure our last night was on a deserted island with only one family there to look after us gringos.

It rained one of the nights we were there, but during the days the skies were clear – too clear in fact, as rachel and I both left san blas with some brutal sunburns. Seriously you guys, do not forget to reapply your sunscreen, even if it’s “rainy” season. Actually I sort of loved the lack of luxury, because I feel like we really felt like we were just young and free sailing through tropical islands. Well, except for the fact that I was on a private boat and drinking cocktails served on a paddle board! If you want a unique island getaway where you feel like you’re getting to know the local culture as well, then you will love visiting san blas.

My father also built port barsucun/barsuggun, and to this day it is lam tours’ main place of movement. Because of this movement we started, the roads opened allowing trade and tourism into san blas, and effectively helping the gunas thrive. Be a conscious traveler, with an awareness of the place you’re going and whether the money you spend benefits the economy of the local hosts.

I can’t think of anywhere else in the world I’ve visited that is quite like san blas, which is impressive considering I’ve visited over 80 countries and a whole lot of beaches and islands. We were going to book three nights at this sea bungalow, but then we came across I travel by boat on instagram and decided to take a sailing trip instead. And I’m so glad we did, because we got to see much more sailing from deserted island to deserted island, whereas I think we may have gotten a bit bored staying on just one island . The 30-minute boat ride to the first island may be a little bumpy and, depending on ocean conditions, there may be some ocean spray. All of our boats have ample space and feature sun protection that will make this journey more comfortable.

The transport used will be disinfected before and after each service and deep-cleaned every 24 hours. You'll have a lobster or fried fish dinner, depending on the season.
