Travel to the Island of the Day: San Blas Islands

The San Blas Islands are in Panama. They are a true paradise!

What was there to do on these paradise islands? Other than swim, snorkel, walk their perimeter and relax on the beach… not very much! What a beautifully unfussy life! No one is in a hurry or clutching a mobile phone. There is no TV or radio blaring. You can spend hours relaxing in a hammock suspended between two picture-perfect palm trees.

A visit to the San Blas islands can be an incredible experience. You will loved it just like I did when I visited there. I was so pleased that we risked the unknown!  The locals are very friendly. I felt like there was a real sense of passion and pride amongst them. It was a real pleasure to meet them and talk to them.

    I was there as part of a Panama Canal cruise in 1982 – absolutely fabulous and picturesque, especially the village. Back then it was a regular 35mm camera for me and must have taken 3 rolls of film of that colorful place.

        Oh it was … now we didn’t get to experience the beaches like in your photos because we were on a cruise ship. In fact, if I remember correctly, we came onto the island on a tender, I don’t think the cruise ship could get that close. But the village and the dress of the native women was so unique and so colorful. I think we were lucky as many people probably have not heard of the San Blas Islands, let alone visit them. We were only in that port that day.
