Is there Phone and Internet Service in the San Blas Islands?

The San Blas Islands are a haven of natural beauty and vibrant indigenous culture. However, as you prepare for your journey to this remote paradise, it’s crucial to understand the limitations regarding phone and internet service.

Most islands of San Blas do have Internet. International roaming is available but can be expensive if your carrier is from the USA.



Instead of using your roaming services that, depending on your local carrier back home, can be expensive, buy yourself a cheap Tigo sim card in any convenient store in Panama City prior to arriving to the catamaran. Top up your new Tigo sim card with credit obtained right there at the store and you are set up.


Some islands and cays do have full internet, others either don’t or have limited access due to poor local antenna reach.

On the other hand, mighty Dutch Cays do not have full internet and phone service due to the distance to land and to the service antenna. BBQ island in Dutch Cays does not have reliable internet at all. This digital detox presents a unique opportunity to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of daily life, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the serene beauty and tranquility of the islands. Embrace the chance to unwind and truly connect with nature, explore the stunning landscapes, and engage deeply with the local Guna culture, free from the constant buzz of technology.
