Have you ever wanted to discover the islands that look like the ones in the Corona commercials where there is a single palm tree with a small hut? Well, you can find about 360 of them just off the coast of Panama in the San Blas Islands. We had a wonderful time on a private yacht exploring the islands after spending time in Panama City and Casco Viejo. Panama is a beautiful place to visit to give yourself an international experience while not venturing too far away from the States. We highly recommend this destination for those that are looking to soak up the sun, enjoy an enjoyable cultural experience, and visit the most unique island colony in the world.
Main Topics Covered:
Panama City, Casco Viejo, and San Blas
