Best Luxury Hotels In San Blas Islands Panama?

Land based accommodation in the San Blas islands is not abundant. Hotels or resorts in San Blas are quite basic due to the limited development of the region and the difficulty in provisioning and communications.

This unique and vast archipelago does host a few island "resorts and hotels", which due to the quality of the service and overall standards are mostly dedicated to budget travelers and backpackers. Take that into consideration prior to deciding between an all inclusive crewed catamaran vacation and a hotel vacation.

The definition of luxury hotel is not exactly interpreted and addressed in the same way throughout the world. Providing guests a luxurious accommodation experience as well as tailored services adapted to the location and its possibilities must be provided in order to meet excellence.

Hotels in San Blas offer minimum amenities and services and that is due both to the limitation in the infrastructure of the San Blas region and the different criteria between indigenous and western "comfort" standards.
