We arranged a trip to the San Blas Islands with a Captain. First of all, you need to drive through the mountains. Leave at 6. It's only 70km from Panama City, but the last 30km take 1.5 hours; it's a rollercoaster through the mountains. Don't...More

We just spent a few hours there, but the snorkelling in a sunken boat was just great; an array of colorful fish and even some eels! Wonderful.

The island is absolutely amazing! Beautiful beaches, very clean, friendly staff: a paradise for those who love snorkeling! I counted more than 50 different kinds of fish swimming around the shipwreck, and the reef was stunning. We spent a wonderful afternoon at Isla Perro, I...More

This island was simply the best. Getting out of the boat and walking around in the ocean playing w starfish was amazing. I can't swim so this was extra special.

I wouldn't want to stay here since it is very small and lots of tourists come on daytrips (including me!) and thus it's not very peaceful during the day. However, it has the best snorkeling given the shallow shipwreck about 30ft away from the island....More

Hello! Summer begins "officially" in January, but honestly: the sun is already burning like crazy in November. As well, this island is a bit far out, so the wind pushes the rain inland and you have a sunny sky while it... More
