San Blas has more than 300 little gem-like islands that make a perfect setting for all your dreams of a Caribbean paradise. The San Blas islands have been selected as “one of the two best sailing destinations in the world”, according to the Cruising World and Le Monde Voyage magazines. “San Blas offers pristine nature, without the presence of any cruise ships or resorts”. We can only agree with them after having explored on our sailboat most of the San Blas islands during the last seven years, a beautiful life in a magnificent surrounding. In addition to the white sand beaches with the most colorful reefs ever seen, the experience of sailing in San Blas becomes very enjoyable, as a result of the 12 to 18 knots of wind blowing during the trade wind season, plus the calm waters inside the archipelago protected by a long exterior reef.
The Kuna indians that live in Kuna Yala (San Blas) are very friendly and make up another reason for sailing San Blas. They settled on the islands and learned to make use of everthing provided by nature and the surrounding sea, and still keep their culture and traditions, while living in a peaceful and modest way. Fishing has always been a part of the Kuna way of life, in other words, if you like to try fresh and delicious fish dishes, San Blas will definitely not disappoint you.
Come and discover the beauty of San Blas, it’s a safe bet and you will live an unforgettable trip with lots of wonderful emotions by sailing San Blas on a sailboat!
