Here we are in San Blas and it is a glorious day. So many shades of blue, crystal clear water. The snorkeling has been fabulous around the nearby shipwreck. And our passengers have just enjoyed a siesta in hammocks under the shade of a coconut palm by the beach. Ready now for a little more underwater exploration.
We are ready again to depart Cartagena, Colombia and sail to the San Blas Islands. Where we will stay for 3 full days and enjoy the paradise that it is.
Snorkeling and exploring the brilliant diverse coral reefs with their abundance of marine life.
Chilling in hammocks under the shade of the coconut palms which line the beaches of the island we visit. Of course with an ice box close by for refreshments.
We will enjoy an all you can eat beach bbq buffet. Followed by a bonfire in the evening… That’s just how it is in the quaint Caribbean paradise.
Each day we visit a different, just as beautiful island paradise. Then on our 3rd evening in San Blas we will raise anchor and sail off into the sunset towards Portobelo.
From Portobelo buses leave every half an hour bound for Panama City, costing just $5.
All in all a great value option for travel from Colombia to Panama
So what are you waiting for.

Another day in paradise…. awakening to a colourful Caribbean sunrise with a soft sea breeze and the chorus of morning songs sang by cheerful birds.
The fish are jumping and the sun sparkles off the turquoise waters which surround us.
Although awake life is feeling like a beautiful dream.
Into the sea now to immerse deeper into the dream and enjoy it from a different perspective.
Just love getting lost in this dream.
