Overview
Have you heard of the amazing San Blas Islands of Panama? Have you seen the post-card perfect photos of deserted white sand specks in the turquoise oceans or of smiling Guna children beckoning you to partake in their little piece of paradise? With some of the most spectacular beaches in all of the world, and with less than 10% of the islands being inhabited by the Guna tribe, you'll be exploring 4 of the 365 islands of this paradise. While the islands are basic and the Gunas can be shy, if you open your heart and mind to the unspoiled and undeveloped beauties of San Blas, you will experience one of the last paradises on earth. We offer you the best of everything: •Timely pick-up from your Panama City lodging •Spacious, comfortable 4x4 transportation •Full insurance for cars, boats and guests •All our boats have sun protection and big awnings. •A quality lunch prepared in a CLEAN kitchen with FRESH ingredients. •Snorkel equipment for each guest for the whole day

My family and I took this San Blas tour last February, right before this pandemic started. 8 months later we still talk about this memorable day in San Blas and feel compelled to leave our feedback. From start to finish everything was organized very professionally. Before

I can't say enough good things about the islands and our Guna hosts. I was surprised at how small the islands are, but we never felt crowded. We enjoyed the boat ride out and back to all the islands and our lunch was very unique - we don't often see a coated and fried whole

Response from taotravel365, General Manager at BLISS in San Blas Islands Panama!!! - Includes Tour & Transport from Panama City
Responded 9 Aug 2020
Hi Denise, thank you for review and constructive criticism. We take all of our reviews very seriously and strive to build on them so we can keep improving our tours and our guest experiences. Regarding your first point about the drive to San Blas. We employ highly rated drivers who are all Gunas and have good driving records. Safety for our guests is our utmost concern. Unfortunately, not all drivers speak English (your tour guide however, will speak English!), but we know they try to make themselves understood with their passengers. All transportation to San Blas consists of SUVs that have three rows of seats. We clearly mention in our listing that the shuttle to San Blas is a car with up to 6 passengers. For those guests who require extra space we offer them to advise us in advance, in which case an extra seat can be purchased and reserved for them. Unfortunately, the Guna Yala territory will not allow buses or any vehicles larger than SUVs to enter their territory. We ask our guests for their understanding and hope the experience in San Blas will make up for the inconvenience :) Regarding the sandflies, yes, they can be a problem during the rainy season from May through November. Some islands have more sandflies than others, again depending on the weather. If there is a slight ocean breeze you will not encounter any of these annoying insects ;) Again we suggest our guests to read the complete listing, where we recommend you to bring insect repellant, just in case. We are glad that overall you enjoyed your day in San Blas and we hope you will visit soon again.

We had a wonderfull day with Adrian and the other Cuna. Adrian is a great driver and a engaged guide. He always knew when to stop for me to take pictures on the way to the harbor. The islands are a little crowded but beautyfull never the less. The Cuna guide was great like all
