Regardless of the country you come from, you must bring a passport with at least three months’ validity.
A tourist is allowed to stay in Panama for 180 days.
Panamais very near the Equator and has a tropical climate; the temperature is usually 25-30º C.
There are two seasons:
The summer season, which lasts from mid-December to May (dry, sunny and windy), which is the perfect time for sailing, going windsurfing, etc.
The spring season, from May to December (rainy, very humid and calm seas); this is the best time for snorkelling and diving.
The itinerary will depend on several factors, mainly the winds, the weather conditions and the conditions at sea.
We will try to arrange the best itinerary possible.
Any form of bottle diving is currently illegal in the archipelago of the Kuna: this is because a few years ago, there were many poachers illegally fishing while using scubas.
We recommend not bringing a hard case suitcase and not bringing too many clothes: it is hot and sometimes windy. Normally, visitors only use half of what they bring; we advise travelling light: shorts, t-shirts, sarongs, swimwear, cap/sunhat, sun cream, polarised glasses, flip-flops/sandals, rain jacket, wind clothes, mosquito repellent, your toiletries and a beach towel; of course, don’t forget your photo camera!
You won’t need anything else onboard.
The current is 110 volts; we recommend brining a flat pin plug adapter.
The sun comes out quite early, at around 06:00 hours and it sets around 18:00 hours.
American Dollars are accepted, as well as the Balboa, which is the official currency of Panama, equivalent to the dollar and having been legal tender since 1904.
Notes of 50 and 100 should be avoided.
In San Blas, the best company is Digicel; you can buy a card here for a small fee and connect.
You cannot get money from cash points in San Blas as there are not machines; if you want to buy anything, like souvenirs, etc., you must bring cash with you.
We suggest bringing notes of $ 1; the Kuna normally won’t have change, should you want to buy anything.
No problem whatsoever: simply make sure you let us know when you contact us and when you arrive; we will take care of everything.
The payment method is through a safe and encrypted system through our Bank (BBVA), in which you will be asked for the data on your credit card in a secure manner (SSL), and which will confirm the transaction with your bank, through a payment gateway.
We also accept PAYPAL or Bank Transfer.
