Has anyone sailed the San Blas Islands?

Hi, I''m interested in hearing from folks who have sailed the San Blas Islands. I''m on the West Coast of California and would like to hear from others who have transited the Canal and sailed the San Blas. I would also like to hear why you have not sailed to them.

I have a friend who sails the San Blas Islands extensively. You can check out her website which has contact information: Caribbean Sailing Adventures

If you are an SSCA member lots of good data in the Bulletins.. just do a Bulletin search on San Blas I got a ton of hits.

all my info is 20 years old, but I suspect many things have not changed much. The Cuna Indians are an independent people, a sovereign nation within Panama. They have invested into developing tourism to support their tribal lifestyle. Few of the islands have water supply. Those that do are piped in from the mainland. The Smithsonian used to maintain a research station there near the point, but no longer do so.

The diving is incredible.

The water is beautiful.

The people are polite and welcoming.

The culture is interesting.

Go.

and aerie? might suggest to your friend a website update is in order... not good for business to still have up the 03 calendar ; -)

ain't what ya do, it's the way that ya do it...
