San Blas Adventures
San Blas Adventures provide a very different service compared to a sailboat tour. Customers should be fully aware of what this trip involves before booking. If you are interested in travelling to or from Sapzurro but would prefer a longer tour aboard a sailboat with a smaller group please let us know. Options are available for a similar price.
San Blas Adventures is an island-hopping group tour. The boats are small fast fibre-glass ‘lanchas’ with outboard engines. You are only on the boat to be taxied between locations. Accommodation may include camping, hammocks and basic local Guna Yala style hostel. Bathroom facilities are also basic.
Group sizes are very large and can be quite boisterous with a big party vibe. The trip is not recommended for people who are not comfortable in large ‘spring break’ style party groups.
Because of the type of boats used trips are liable to delay at certain times of year. In other months the weather is better and safer however not ideal for very nervous travellers.
