Colon to Panama City, Panama: 6 Days
Panama is the link between North and South America and is bordered by both the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean. Her many islands create ideal cruising grounds. Chains include the San Blas Islands, Pearl Islands, Bocas del Toro, Taboga Islands, Coiba Island, and Isla Grande/ Portobelo. The Panama Canal allows for flexibility with your charter itinerary. For example, start in the San Blas and end in the Pearl Islands. Activities are practically endless in this tropical paradise!
The San Blas Archipelago dot along the Caribbean coast of Panama from the Golfo de San Blas nearly all the way to the Colombian border. Only 49 of the 378 islands are inhabited by the independent Kuna Indians. Visiting is like stepping back in time. There is minimal interference from the Panamanian Government and therefore the Kuna have maintained their traditions and practices. The San Blas are surrounded by reefs, some of the oldest in the world, and offer wonderful snorkeling opportunities, the best of which are between the months of April and June.
The Las Perlas Archipelago is found off Panama's Pacific coast, just south of Panama City. Visitors will revel in the quiet island life. The brilliant, turquoise waters are crystal-clear, teeming with coral beds and a rich diversity of marine life. There are over 200 islands and islets to explore and most are in pristine condition. Snorkeling, diving, and fishing are popular activities in this area.
