Discover the San Blas Islands and relax in a rustic bungalow on the beach, hosted by a native Guna family. Snorkel in a sunken boat and enjoy some kayaking and swimming in a natural pool.


  • Sleep in an amazing waterfront bungalow on the beach
  • Go kayaking, swimming, and paddling by the San Blas Islands
  • Visit Perro Chico's sunken boat and natural swimming pool
  • Taste freshly-caught local fish


Spend a full day and night on the San Blas Islands: swim, kayak, and paddle out on the water and overnight in a bungalow on the beach. San Blas is an indigenous zone, so prepare for a rustic time. There’s no hot water, Wi-Fi, electricity, or other amenities, so you’ll spend 2 days experiencing what life is like for the Gunas. On the morning of Day 1, you’ll be picked up at 5:20 AM from the lobby of your Panama City hotel and taken on a 2.5-hour trip by 4WD over the San Blas hills up to Port Tupile. From there, take a typical Guna boat on a 30-minute ride to paradise over turquoise waters. Arrive on the white sand beach where you’ll spend 2 days and 1 night in a bungalow right on the beach. The Yani Lodge bungalows are rustic with shared bathrooms, and the island is very calm. On the island, taste the catch of the day around mid-day and then take a tour with a guide to Perro Chico, where you can snorkel in a sunken boat full of colorful fish. Then, visit a natural swimming pool and spot starfish and other marine wildlife. Spend the rest of the time kayaking, paddle-boarding, or just relaxing on the beach.   On Day 2, enjoy breakfast and spend your free day to explore the island, and relaxing! Transportation back to Panama City around 3:00 PM, arriving around 6:00 PM to your hotel.
