Escape to Paradise: Exploring the San Blas Islands of Panama with Jarobele Travel


Ohhh boy, what can I say about these absolutely gorgeous islands? If you ever go to Panama, please do yourself a HUGE favor and visit the San Blas Islands off the northwest coast of Panama. The San Blas Islands are a group of 378 islands inhabited by the Guna or Kuna people. They are the natives who own and operate these beautiful islands, and their culture and way of life make the experience of visiting them even more special.

Getting to the San Blas Islands takes a bit of effort, but it's definitely worth it. From my hotel room, it took about four hours to reach this paradise. We traveled through mountains at high elevations that made my heart jump, but the stunning views along the way were breathtaking. Then, it's another hour boat ride deep into the ocean to get to the islands. The journey is definitely an adventure, but once you arrive, you'll feel like you've stepped into a postcard-perfect paradise.

The San Blas Islands offer a unique mix of natural beauty and cultural richness. The crystal-clear waters are perfect for swimming, snorkeling, and diving, and the islands themselves are covered in lush tropical vegetation. The beaches are pristine, with soft white sand and gently swaying palm trees. The Kuna people have lived on these islands for generations, and their culture is deeply intertwined with the land and the sea. You can learn about their traditions and crafts, including their famous molas (handmade textiles), and even stay in one of their traditional huts.

Some of the most popular islands to visit in the San Blas archipelago include Cayos Holandeses, Isla Perro, and Isla Chichime. Cayos Holandeses is a group of small islands that offer some of the best snorkeling and diving in the region. Isla Perro is known for its beautiful beaches and excellent surfing conditions, while Isla Chichime is a great spot for kayaking and paddleboarding.
