                              IMPORTANT, DON'T FORGET YOUR PASSPORT!!!

                                  Main reasons why it is highly recommended to fly to San Blas:

  • Flight time is 40 minutes instead of the 4 to 5 hours of road transfer and water taxi. The departure location can be local to Albrook PAC or international to Tocumen PTY as an option. Fly and skip the water and road taxi, which is not convenient for some. Landing in Corazón de Jesús is a stone's throw from the Keys. Arriving by water taxi and by road puts you 2 hours by boat from the tip of the Holandeses Keys. The costs of flying have dropped compared to previous years.                                                                                                                                                                                   

  • Where do you take the plane to San Blas? The local Albrook airport which is in Panama City or the Tocumen international airport as an option, which is good because you can get to San Blas without having to change airports.

  • Where do the flights land? Heart of Jesus and the Future Which of the 2 landing sites is the best? We prefer Corazón de Jesús because it is easy to get to the Keys, but sometimes we can fly to El Porvenir if necessary for weather reasons.

Please note that San Blas airports do not have lights and flights in and out must take place during the day.

  • Is it safe to fly to San Blas? Some of our guests are often afraid of flying on small private planes. Needless to say, the airline industry in Panama is 100% regulated and inspections are implemented as they would be in the US or any other Western country. Without any recorded flight problems, we can determine that flights to San Blas are completely safe.
