San Blas Islands

 

Because of the Darien Gap at the border between Panama and Columbia, travelling overland from destinations south of this region can be difficult and even dangerous. Between the drug cartels and the dense jungle travellers tend to arrive in the following four ways:

  1. Flying straight to the Islands
  2. Sailing from Cartegena (Colombia)
  3. Speed boat from Capurganá
  4. By land from Panama City! – Share your travel knowledge for bus travel to San Blas Islands!

    if anyone is planning on doing the boat trip I totally recommend these guys http://colombiapanamasailing.com/san-blas-sailboat-quest/. It is an actual sail boat which is sweet. They are more expensive but you get what you pay for. About 10 people, really comfortable boat and really professional. You leave from Portobelo (el porvenir is where some of the others leave and is harder to reach). Here is another option http://sanblasadventures.com/boat-panama-to-colombia/). I have also heard good things. There are cheaper options too but I wouldn’t recommend just going with anyone. have fun.
