Photos to Inspire Wanderlust: San Blas Islands

Photos to Inspire Wanderlust: San Blas Islands

The San Blas Islands of Panama are a group of over 360 islands, most of which are uninhabited. The islands are situated between Colombia and Panama, often used as the route to travel between the countries. The Kuna people that inhabit some of the islands are friendly, welcoming and extremely photogenic (you’ll see below). Although we aren’t big fans of organised tours, we did this trip on a speedboat tour and it was one of the best we’ve ever done. I mean, it’s hard to complain when you’re waking up in a hammock, on a secluded island with crystal clear water and white soft sand. We’ve picked some of our favourite photos to inspire your inner wanderlust and hope that if you’re ever on that side of the world, you’ll make sure to see these islands.

    That night shot looks very tricky! Bet you had a few goes at that.

    I’ll also bet these great tropic island posts are most welcome in North America and Europe. Not so much here in Canberra, where it’s over 30° every day!

    Good post, lots of sun and sand and water. Love it!
