One Day tour to San Blas Islands
Tour DescriptionThe Guna Yala Indian Region is constituted by 2.357 kilometers of coast and 365 islands, of which only 50 islands are inhabited. Commonly, the region is known as San Blas Islands, and each one of the islands is administrated by a family.
Thanks to the fact that the Guna population has been able to maintain its identity despite the social and political changes, they are considered to be one of the strongest indigenous groups of Central America - receiving thousands of tourists who arrive from all over the world to enjoy and learn about their lifestyle and the enchanting coral islands they inhabit.
The day tour will take you to one of these paradisiac islands to spend an entire day of relaxation.
First, a 4x4 transportation will pick you up in your hotel to take you to the dock, located about 2 and a half hours away from Panama City. Then, a boat ride will take you to the island you choose - the boat ride time will vary depending on the island you visit.
During the day, you will have the opportunity to explore the island and its crystal, clear waters full of marine biodiversity while you enjoy a snorkeling tour, a diving expedition, a canoe ride, an artisanal fishing trip, or a visit to the community to know more about the history of indigenous culture, its political structure, and its traditions.
