Sailing adventure through the san blas islands - Colombia to Panama

One of the best — and easiest — ways to travel between Panama and Colombia is by boat. While San Blas Adventure’s main priority is promoting our extensive San Blas Archipelago island-hopping trips — such as our trip from Colombia to Panama, we also realise that some people may be thinking more about going by sailboat from Panama to Colombia - Cartagena or from Cartagena - Colombia to Panama. We have access to and are able to help you make a reservation on a wide range of sailboats making this journey through the San Blas islands.

To help you decide if you’d prefer to take a sailing boat or speedboat between Colombia to Panama, or Panama to Colombia here is a general comparison between the two options that may help:

Standard Sailboat Trip from Colombia to Panama
Created by potrace 1.15, written by Peter Selinger 2001-2017

Price

$550 – $650
Kuna taxes not included

Boat Experience

3 days in San Blas + 2 days ocean crossing.

Going on a Sailboat is more about being on the boat than the islands. Though not so much a sailing experience (as they mostly move with the engines on) it is nice to lounge on a sailboat near the islands.

Most of the time is spent on the sailboat, going to the islands occasionally by small boat or swimming.

Islands visited :

Explore between 2 and 4 different San Blas Islands and pass through around 30% (on average) of the entire archipelago.

Island time :

32% of your time is spend on the San Blas Islands and 68% of your time is spend on the boat.

Culture experience :

You may or may not visit or meet the local people. Many tour providers only spend few hours in a Kuna village.

Giving back :

On average, 4% of the money you spend on these trips goes to the native Kuna people.

Ocean crossing :

2 days open ocean crossing. The trip includes 30-50 hours of open sea navigation between Cartagena and San Blas and an additional 7-10 hours if your trip departs from/arrives to Puerto Lindo or Portobello.

Seasickness:

More time on the water (14 hours per day), combined with a sailboat’s natural rocking motion, can cause seasickness.

Route

Colombia : Cartagena

Panama: Puerto lindo/Portobelo or Carti

Consistency

Different boats will give you different experiences from amazing to terrible. It’s very important to research which boat and captain you will travel with.

Crew

Varies depending on the boat. Generally there will be a captain and one or more crew to help with food and running the boat.
