Flights to the San Blas Archipelago with Air Panama

Air Panama is the only carrier flying to the beautiful, untouched islands in the San Blas. The airline flies to destinations in the Guna Yala region on the airfields of Achutupo (ACU), Corazon de Jesus (CZJ), El Porvenir (PVE), Malatupo (MPP), Playón Chico (PYC) and Puerto Obaldía (PUE). Most of these flights take place on very small, domestic aircraft that can only accommodate for about 20 passengers. Make sure you book well in advance and bear in mind that dates may be sporadic for less popular routes. Flights take no more than a couple of hours to reach the picturesque paradise of the San Blas.

 


About the San Blas  

The San Blas archipelago of Panama comprises of 365 remote and stunningly beautiful islands and cays, of which only 49 are inhabited. They stretch all the way down from the north coast of the Isthmus of Panama all the way to the east of the Panama Canal.

The San Blas is an autonomous region primarily inhabited by the Guna, an indigenous people who live across Panama and Colombia. One of their main exports is coconuts, which until recently was considered the San Blas' major forms of currency.
