Today we begin our adventure through the San Blas Archipelago which will carry us from Comolbia to Panama by sea. From Capurganà we reach the even smaller village of Sapzurro by boat. We will sleep here for tonight. We then prepare our backpacks for the next days: a small one with everidya things and the big one with everything else. The big one goes into the boat protected with a bag (the sea can be very rough here!). We will collect it at the end of the trip…
Our first stop the morning after is at the border with Panama in Puerto Obaldia: two hours waiting for the police and their drug-sniffing dogs to check every single backpack. Word of advice: if you go on this trip, DON’T bring any drugs, you will be busted for sure!!
The next four days are like a dream: crystal clear water, deserted tropical islands, lovely Kuna villages, bathing and swimming, nice food and volleyball with the locals:not bad at all!
