You’ll have plenty of time to work on your suntan during this San Blas (Guna Yala) island hopper. Located just two hours from Panama City, it’s a popular day trip for any paradise seeker. Crystal-clear waters are ideal for snorkeling on coral reefs or meandering sugar-white sands, and you’re served a catch-of-the-day lunch.
