“A trip to these islands ‘known for their crystal blue waters and ﬂour-white sand,’ says Emmanuel Burgio, president of travel boutique Blue Parallel, ‘is an oﬀ-the-grid experience unparalleled by any Caribbean destination.’ Home to the Gunas, a Panamanian indigenous people, Burgio notes that this remote archipelago has an ‘abundance of coral reefs and healthy waters make that make San Blas an excellent and unknown area for snorkeling.’

What do you most want in a travel operator?
“Two things: complete knowledge and absolute discretion. That Blue Parallel has the first is beyond question. All the Blue Parallel employees, guides and escorts that I met were marvelously clever, resourceful and flexible. ‘Discretion’ is a rarer attribute and, perhaps, Blue Parallel’s chief strength. Meaning, if you want attention and hand-holding you will get it. But in those moments or hours where you want to be left alone, the folks from Blue Parallel know to disappear. This is elegance. This is taste. This is the way to be shown a new place. I have never been taken care of in a foreign country in such a sophisticated way. Bravo, Blue Parallel!”
