Hotels [edit]

The only hotel of the island is poorly presented in the international booking systems. Room's rates start from $80 per night, if booked via agents. If you can book directly from the hotel, the price will be cheaper.

There are private rooms, as well as dormitory, - everything is very basic. Take drinking water with you, or you will buy it for $2 per bottle. As for meals and tours to the neighboring islands, these are reasonably priced.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to Panama City international airport (PTY). Next fly to the island of El Porvenir, and take a boat to Isla Diablo. Or you may get by 4x4 jeep to the coastal town of Puertos de Carti, and next take a water taxi (30 minutes per way).

Another major transportation options to San Blas are ocean tours from the colombian beach resort of Cartagena. Choose the boat carefully, since trying to save $200-300, you will loose in comfort and safety.
