Next stop from my Panamanian trip : San Blas island! Which is basically the closest thing to paradise.
We booked a private tour to the archipelago of San Blas which has around 300 islands along the Caribbean coast of Panama but only 50 are inhabited. After waking up at 3am and going on a quite bumpy 4 hour drive from the city going through the luxurious jungle (which was a bowl of fresh air) we arrived to a jetty and got on a small motorized boat for an hour ride. Unfortunately we went on a rainy day but the landscape was breathtaking!!
We arrived to a small virgin island with no constructions only small shacks where locals spent the day. Locals are Kuna indians, they live as an autonomous people. We were about 10 people on this amazing island lined with turquoise water and it was the best feeling ever.
Being disconnected from everything and just enjoying the moment with nature. After a few hours laying on the beach and swimming in the translucide water we enjoyed a fresh grilled fish with a salad and delicious coconut rice by the beach and went on to visit another island, and we ended the trip in a natural pool in the middle of the ocean (we could just stand there!) surrounded by colorful fish and starfishes!
This trip was definitely the best place i’ve ever been! It is a blessing to have been there and the Kuna people were so friendly and helpful. It was fun to meet young locals and talk about what their typical day is like and compare to mine in Paris!
