We have selected, just for you, one of the most beautiful islands: Wailidup!
Located at 30 minutes by canoe from Barsukun Pier in San Blas, this tiny island offers paradise for a maximum of 25 lucky visitors. White sand beach, turquoise waters, coral reefs, hammocks, and private huts with sand floor!
The driver will pick you up around 05:00 a.m. After a 2 1/2 drive, you will enter the Guna region (Guna Yala). Then the road goes up and down to the Caribbean border: on the way a nice spot with a gorgeous view of the archipelago. At your arrival at the River Barsukun in Carti, you will get on board a Guna canoe, downstream the river and ride to the island: this passage can be a bit wet during the trade wind season: be ready to be sprayed! Then here you are, at paradise island Wailidup.
In the afternoon, the Guna canoe can take you to the traditional village of Rio Sidra (Mamardup) for a few hours visit (you will ask to pay a community fee of about $5 per pers.).This is the place of the famous mola makers! A unique opportunity to see them work on their molas and to purchase the most beautiful models at a reasonable price. Play also with the kids: they love to meet visitors. If you stay 2 days, next day can be dedicated to explore other island with the Wailidup canoe (included in pricing).
All 3 meals are included in the package: if you want giant crabs or lobster you must inform the locals about it upon arrival on the island so that this extra is added to your dinner. After a good night in your bamboo hut (double bed, sheets, etc.) the same canoe will take you back to Cartí and the jeepney to Panama City with an estimated time of arrival around 11h00.
If you want an additional night, it has a cost of $100.00 per person.
We invite guests to extend their stay aboard a San Blas Sailing sailboat to reach other remote islands for a 2 to 7 days cruise: in this case, boat would pick up you up at island.
