Sovereign Grace is the perfect option for Kite Surfing tours in San Blas or other customised trips, including tours provided by the local inhabitants of Guna Yala.
For almost a decade important relationships with the people of Guna Yala that have been developed. As a result of this, Sovereign Grace is welcomed in the region as a positive example of sustainable tourism by working with the people of Guna Yala.
Island, jungle and river tours are available and can be added to your package, along with the opportunity to stay the night in a traditional village. Only by supporting the local community in this way can we enjoy the continued special relationships and permissions we currently have.
