San Blas: empty anchorages in the best Caribbean charter destination.

An all inclusive yacht charter in the independent region of the San Blas islands located in the Caribbean coast of Panama, opens the possibility of exploring this vast archipelago of more than 365 islands to any visitor coming in by air or road.

Regardless of the group composition: families, friends or couples, there’s always a plan onboard, whether it is simply relaxing and sipping on your sundown pina colada while watching the scenery from the catamaran or engaging in the multiple activities available and proposed by the captain.

Be warned, San Blas has two different parts: the islands close to shore and the ports which receive mostly day trips from local Panamanian visitors and the outer islands and cays along with the area close by the Corazon de Jesus airport which are not possible to reach by day travelers due to the distance and that offer the most isolated, unique and preserved scenery found in the Caribbean.
