Adventure travel San Blas and some other fabulous places
Salina Cruz adventure travel tours are a hot thing right now. Few attractions include In this vast spring vegetation is lush and diverse wildlife, hence ideal for traveled by boat. Of these walks you can choose one taking you from La Aguada long or short one if you leave the tourist pier Tovara. No matter what choose, explore these wetlands while watching its natural wealth will be a great experience. The site also features a typical restaurant.
The archipelago has 365 islands picturesque and palm tree covered, uninhabited and set in indescribably beautiful aqua waters. When famous author John Le Carre of The Tailor of Panama stayed in San Blas his comment upon taking in an island view was, “This is not paradise, this is heaven.” This is the place to go if you truly want to “get away from it all” to be seeped in and surrounded by nature. Owned by the Guna indians, they’ve kept everything natural and authentic. What a pleasure to spend a few days where there’s no concrete, glass or steel. The second major attraction is the Guna people- a beautiful ancient people, largely unspoiled by modern life. Read more at San Blas sailing.
Isla Perro or in English Dog Island is a famous and well-visited spot by travel guides in the San Blas area. Isla Perro is beautiful because of the white sand beach, crystal clear water, palm trees and small bar with a volleyball field in front of it. You can even spend the night here in a tent or hammock. But most people come to Isla Perro for snorkeling in and around the shipwreck gunboat that lies around 50 meters in front of the beach, when tide is low you can see it hitting the sea surface. Because of this shipwreck the second name of the island is sometimes Isla Gunboat. Nature is taking over the ship and it is full of coral, plants and other sea life. You can see small fish hiding in the shipwreck but also bigger fish hunting around in the open sea around it. Therefore, Isla Perro is the #1 spot for snorkeling and relaxing in San Blas. This is one of the islands everybody needs to visit when traveling to Guna Yala.
To get to San Blas you’ve got four options. You can fly from Panama straight into the San Blas Islands, take a sailing boat from Cartagena, take a speedboat from Capurganá, or take the bus from Panama City. Most backpackers travelling between Colombia and Panama choose one of these options. For a good reason: Travelling over the land border, known as the ‘Darien Gap’, can be very dangerous . This is a popular drug trafficking route out of Colombia to Panama and is not safe (plus it’s just untamed jungle the whole way!).
The San Blas trip is possible all year round. But you need to know one important thing: It’s windy season from December to March. This means there will be high waves, not necessarily around San Blas since it’s sheltered by a reef, but the journey over open seas can get rough (read more about the routes below). If you get seasick easily the sailing trip might not be for you. If you are adventurous and like the idea of sailing, then yes it’s for you!
