How many Ports are there in the San Blas Region of Panama

There are currently 4 extremely basic ports operating in Kuna Yala - San Blas region although the most commonly used by Catamaran Adventures San Blas is the port of Barsuggun o Barsukun. All of them lye in the Carti area.


Kuna Yala has 4 different ports that are accessible by the main road leading from Panama city to the San Blas Islands.


To access the ports from which to hop-on a water taxi to one of our catamarans or any of the islands, you must first take a road transfer or drive yourself from Panama City (use of 4x4 car is mandatory) for around 1.5 hours to the

border and then use the dirt road heading East and of approximately 30 minutos duration.


There are 4 ports in San Blas but for reaching our catamarans we normally point you to the port of Barsuggun o Barsukun which is actually by a river, has a safe parking and waiting area. Other ports in San Blas are Tupile, Dibin and Niga Kantule.
