San Blas Island Getaway
(5 Days / 4 Nights)

During this trip you will experience the enchantment of the Caribbean San Blas Islands as well as the magic of Panama City. You will get what you need: a well deserved rest while enjoying pristine beaches and learning about the local Kuna culture and traditions.

Day 01 Arrival in Panama City

Upon arrival to Panama a representative will pick you up at the airport and transfer you to your city hotel for your first night in Panama. Panama City is the capital and largest city in the country. It is home to a diverse blend of cultures and an enormous historical sector in the Old City. The lively and vibrant banking district on the other hand is very modern and often compared to Miami. Panama City is a thrilling location you will surely enjoy during your visit to this gorgeous country.

Overnight at the Bristol Panama Hotel, Deluxe Room; breakfast included.


Day 02: San Blas Island

In the early morning you will be transferred to the domestic airport, where you will take a short flight to the pristine San Blas Islands in the Caribbean Sea. Here you will stay in a secluded and quiet lodge, where you will enjoy the beautiful ocean view while balancing in a hammock.

The pristine San Blas Archipelago includes picture-perfect tropical islands with white sand and coconut trees. Depending on whom you ask, the number of islands varies between 365 and 380, many of them with no people living on them. Less than 60 islands are home by an Indian tribe, the Kuna. The Kuna is one of the best preserved of all the indigenous cultures of the Americas. The Kuna people are so determined to protect their heritage that they have maintained their autonomy since the Spanish first arrived over 500 years ago. The San Blas province has its own government the indigenous independent congress and each island is run by a chief. Tourism is limited to only a few of the islands. But with its turquoise waters, the white sand beaches dotted with palm trees and thatched-roof Kuna villages, the San Blas Archipelago is absolutely worth a visit.

Your stay in San Blas includes two daily tours to nearby beaches, uninhabited islands or Kuna villages.

Overnight at Yandup Aqua Lodge, Over-the-Water Bungalow; three daily meals included.


Day 03 San Blas Islands

Enjoy a free day on the San Blas Islands. Join a tour to a secluded beach or visit a Kuna community to learn about the customs of this interesting tribe and to see the women's colorful dresses, the so called Molas. You will also have the chance to purchase these beautiful handicrafts.

Overnight at Yandup Aqua Lodge, Over-the-Water Bungalow; three daily meals included.


Day 04 Half Day Panama City Tour & Miraflores Locks

In the morning you will be transferred to the airport where you will take your flight back to Panama City. Upon arrival your guide will pick you up at the hotel to take you to the impressive Agua Clara Visitor Center located on the Atlantic side of the Panama Canal. The Agua Clara Visitor Center is a place where the Panama Canal has made it clear that both its legacy and its grandeur will continue to bear fruit for the world. With an unparalleled view, this place is waiting for you and all those who want to enjoy a pleasant experience enriched with interesting facts, but especially by being part of the history of the route that unites the world. The center offers a breathtaking panoramic view that contrasts two particular scenarios that generate mixed feelings. On one side you will find the famous Gatun Lake, where cargo ships or other vessels transit every day, while on the other side, but from a different perspective, you will be amazed by the view of the expansion works.

Beyond its surprising technology or colossal machinery, you will be astonished by the work of thousands of people, who with discipline and determination head towards the same goal to make Panama stronger and Panamá worthy of admiration. After the impressive viewpoint, pamper yourself and be captivated by all those things that the Agua Clara visitor center has to offer. At the projection room you can learn about the history and efforts of thousands of men and women that have marked the Canal's first century and, of course, plans in the near and distant future. Throughout your visit, watch for the walls and exhibits with interesting information that will amaze you. Walk through the ecological path, with a variety of plants and species that makes the trail an adventure with great scenery and breathtaking views; identify the different species gathered thereindigenous of the area of the Canal watershed.

To continue the tour you will be taken to the Casco Antiguo, where you feel set back in time as you admire the lovely colonial houses, the narrow roads and the impressive churches. You will get a good idea about Panama’s history by driving or walking through the main attractions of this quarter. A delicious lunch will be served in a distinctive local restaurant. After the visits you will be taken back to your hotel. 

Overnight at the Bristol Panama Hotel, Deluxe Room; breakfast included.
