San Blas Islands, Guna Yala Region

Island · Nature / Park
Experience the laid-back lifestyle of San Blas Islands, a small archipelago off the coast of Panama that's self-governed by the indigenous Kuna Yala people. Since a revolution in 1925, the Kuna people that inhabit the islands have autonomy from the mainland. Get away from civilization and spend some time lounging on the palm-covered tropical island that boases tranquil white sand beaches. Swim and snorkel in the warm azure waters, take boat trips to nearby smaller islands, and experience the solitude of island life. Keep in mind that you'll be a guest of the Kuna people, so you'll experience their modest way of life including basic amenities, simple food, and no electricity during the night. Discover how to plan a San Blas Islands trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.
