Pick up from your hotel at around 5:30am towards the Caribbean coast of San Blas. The road takes us on a scenic drive along the continental divide, dense tropical rainforest and through a river to Cartí from where a motorized canoe will take you to Duborgana. Your first stop will be to Gardi Yandup to visit an indigenous community and see the traditional lifestyle of the Guna people. Continue to Duborgana Island where you will be spending the night. All meals are provided here and are based on local seafood freshly caught and prepared by the locals. After dinner you can sit back and relax to the sound of the ocean and fully enjoy the beauty of these paradaisical islands.
After breakfast you once again set out to experience the beauty of the area. White sand beaches, a stunning marine wildlife and marvelous coral reefs invite you to investigate what you might have missed the previous day. You can also choose to learn more about the culture and traditions of the area’s tribes, which they have kept very much alive in spite of hundreds of years of colonialism and a rapidly changing society.
Spend the morning day exactly to your liking. Whether you want to head out and go snorkeling or simply relax on the beach, your friendly hosts will be glad to cater to you in whichever way necessary. Use this last day on a Caribbean island to fully enjoy its paradisiacal flair before, once again, engaging in travel in the afternoon. Activities and tours are available as on the preceding days. Back to Panama City and arrival at around 7:00pm
