San Blas Archipelago
Our Caribbean sea kayak adventure is a real journey exploring Panama’s San Blas archipelago, home to the indigenous Kuna Yala Nation. With special permissions from local chiefs, we’re privileged to kayak among the archipelago’s 350 islands and sand cays, and to be welcomed as guests into Kuna communities where tourism is strictly controlled and traditional culture remains strong.
After a short flight from Panama City, we’ll paddle along a stretch of islands through this area of outstanding beauty and biological diversity, using a local panga boat to carry our fresh food and water. We’ll beach camp on deserted islands and snorkel over some of the Caribbean’s most diverse coral reefs.
The isthmus of Panama is a prolific natural corridor linking North and South America, with vast undisturbed forests that are home to monkeys, toucans, birds of prey, giant otters and tapirs. We’ll spend a day exploring a crystal clear freshwater river that flows through primary jungle and taking a rainforest walk.
Join us for a spectacular Panama kayaking adventure holiday, blending Kuna culture, astonishing reefs and rainforest, and of course, some tropical relaxation.
