Enjoying the Beautiful Landscape in San Blas

San Blas Islands & Sailing Photos

Andy Travel Central America, Panama, San Blas Islands Leave a Comment

Our sailing trip from Panama to Cartagena with a few days spent in the San Blas Islands was something that we both were really looking forward to. I’m always in search of the perfect beach with soft white sand and clear blue water. Even though the sand on the beaches was not always extremely soft, the water was just about as clear as it could get in some places.

We actually took hundreds of pictures during our time in San Blas, so our photos below are just a few of our favorite shots, along with some pictures of our boat, the Sailing Koala. I almost wish we were able to get more photos of life on the boat, but walking around a boat with a DSLR is not always the easiest thing… especially with the possibility of slipping and dropping the camera in the ocean.

I feel like a lot of our images make our time in San Blas look like it was the most perfect place, but Lynn definitely pointed out some of the less glamorous parts of our trip in her article about our sailing trip. I’m definitely not complaining though, because it was beautiful in San Blas and definitely one of the most amazing beach settings we have ever visited.
