Sailing Panama To Cartagena
Five Night San Blas Island Adventure
The length of the trip and what islands you will visit will depend on the weather and the anchoring conditions. You will likely visit 3 – 5 groups of islands and depart the boat in Cartagena after 5 nights.
Our standard trips start early afternoon from Puerto Lindo. This means on average you will get much more recreation time in San Blas compared to boats collecting passengers in the islands and only providing 4 nights. Transport costs are also much lower to get to Puerto Lindo, so our trip is easily one of the best value available as well as one of the longest running.
Please see the sample itinerary below. Note that changes may be forced due to circumstances out of our control.

What To Expect
San Blas, Guna Yala
Guna Yala is an autonomous territory or ‘comarca’ comprised of approximately 350 islands off the Caribbean coast of Panama. The inhabitants of the ‘San Blas Islands’, as they are commonly called are indigenous people with their own laws, language, congress and distinct culture.
Our boats have been sailing in the region for ten years, running popular backpacker sailing trips to between Colombia and Panama. The boat has a great relationship with the inhabitants of the islands who always provide a warm welcome when we arrive.
