There is so much rubbish on the island, it is disgusting. The reef is okay, but nothing more. Not really worse to go there.

We went with friends to the San Blas Islands for a day. Our second time. For first-timers: You need to arrange with a captain/crew upfront. Then leave at 6. It's only 70km from Panama City, but the last 30km take 1.5 hours; it's a rollercoaster...More
