Staying in the San Blas

All in all, it’s not a bad place to stick around. There are so many different spots to see within an hour’s sail, and every new island is a surprise. Our latest favorite anchorage is in the Central Holandes right above Miriadiadup. To the north of us is a vast shallow lagoon protected by reef and to the south lies the prettiest island I’ve seen yet in the San Blas, covered in palm trees and ringed by a sandy path with perfect ocean views. Three Kuna families live on it, keeping it well maintained, and they sell some pretty darn nice molas, if you’re into that sort of thing.

The massive surrounding reef system provides fantastic snorkeling and spearfishing, and there are a ton of other islands nearby to take a walk on. And, no, I’m not on the Kuna Yala tourism board. But I should be!


  1. San Blas sounds a lot like the Abacos here except more people here and we get cold fronts that come through this time of year to make things a little chilli once in a while but right now it's 75 degrees, sunny with just a tad of breeze.

    I'm flying back to Kemah on the 11th for a couple of weeks. Brrrrrr :)

  2. So about those beautiful palm tree islands.... How is our plantation just east of Miriadiadup coming along?

    (don't cut yourself on the glass shards checking.....)

    Loki says hi/brrrr!
