Panama’s beaches have always been a source of pleasure and relaxation for locals, tourists, and full and part-time expats. Panama is famous for its dual coastlines that stretch the width of the entire country on both the Pacific and Caribbean, and a few names always pop out as the most popular: Coronado, Isla Grande, Las Lajas, San Carlos, Santa Catalina, and now…Playa Venao.

Caribbean islands have always been the places of magic in the hearts and imagination of traveler, or would-be travelers all over the world. For Panama, the Caribbean is also something special, as it hosts half of the country’s coastline, and has a large variety of cultural heritage and historic influence. Amongst the most sought after places to visit on the Caribbean side of Panama are the San Blas Islands (or Guna Yala in their native name). San Blas is an archipelago that has around 400 small islands that hug the eastern Caribbean coast of Panama, all the way to the Colombian border.
