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