Thinking about a San Blas day trip is a great idea if your are planning your trip’s schedule. The San Blas island chain is made up of hundreds of small palm fringed islands. This is a pristine habitat that is inhabited by the indigenous Kuna/Guna Indians that should be included in any visit to Panama.
The San Blas day tour begins with transportation from Panama City to Carti in one of the Kuna operated, 4×4 shared people carriers. They can take up to 6 passengers. This is the only transport available into the San Blas for a San Blas day tour. The pick up in Panama City is between 5.15 AM and 5.45 AM. The journey to Carti on the San Blas island mainland is around 2.5-3 hours through Panama’s spectacular jungle highland. In Carti you will be collected by one of the Kuna day tour operators we work with.
During your San Blas day tour you will normally visit three islands including Isla Perro, Isla Diablo and the ship weck where there are ample opportunities to snorkel the wreck and surrounding reefs or just relax in the shallows. There may be an opportunity to visit one of the Kuna Yala communities, these island towns are often dirty and not that pleasant but it´s an experience that definitely worth living.
The San Blas of the islands will finish around 2-3 PM, when you will be transported back to Carti on the mainland to meet with the 4×4 transport back to Panama City, you will arrive back in Panama City between 6 and 7 PM normally. Be aware that all times given are approximate and the itinerary may vary slightly from the one given.
