2 night itinerary including road transfer from your hotel/residence in Panama City:

> Day 1 : Cayo Limón - Cayos Holandeses (Dutch Cays)

 

Transfer in: you will be picked up from your hotel or residence in Panama City at around 5:15 am and from there. You will arrive at the port of San Blas at around 8:15-8:30 AM. Once in the port of San Blas and with formalities in check you will be directed to the corresponding water taxi which will take you to the catamaran.

Water taxi transfer is around 45 minutes Boarding time is usually before 10:00 AM and after a quick briefing and maybe a swim, you will sail to W Cayos Holandeses which is about 1 1/2 hours total sailing. You will arrive at Cayos Holandeses (dutch Cays) at approximately 14:00.

 

Spend the remaining of the day around the islands which can be accessed with the dingy, so no need for sailing. Sleep is done while at anchor in that discreet part of the Dutch Cays.

> Day 2 : Dutch Cays - Cayo Limon

 

You will sail to another group of islands within the Dutch Cays. Sailing time is around 1 hour. Time for snorkelling, paddle boarding, kayaking, etc. That same afternoon before sundown you will sail back to the point of origin, expect around 2 1/2 hours of sailing,

 

Transfers out: you will be picked up next morning around 7:00 AM by the local water taxi. Expect to be in Panama City before 12 AM noon.

 

- Normally on short stays with road transfers, guests tend to book a late exit for 50% of the price, that means disembarking at 15:00 on exit day thus spending one more night out in the amazing Dutch Cays or any location different from the initial point in Lemon Cays.

 

Take into consideration that this itinerary can/will be modified by the captain if the weather does not allow such route. Normally in high season this does not occur, in summer chances are a bit higher but San Blas is absolutely amazing and there are more than 360 islands from which to choose from.

2 night itinerary including flight transfer from Albrook local terminal in Panama City

> Day 1 : Corazón de Jesus - Cayo Coco Bandero

Transfer in: take a taxi to Albrook local terminal PAC in Panama City and fly your private plane to Corazon de Jesus. You will be landing in San BLas after a 40 minute flight over the jungle and part of the Cays in San Blas. Have your camera ready for the flight! Once landing and after showing your passport, the captain will take you to the catamaran which will be anchored next to the runway.

Flying in puts you a stone throw away from the most isolated, untouched and pristine part of the San Blas islands. After a pleasant sail of around 30 minutes onboard the catamaran, you will anchor in Cayo Coco Bandero. Snorkelling, paddle boarding and visiting the group of islands islands around is a memorable experience and will definitely leave a mark on you.

There is s just a tiny hut that fishermen use from time to time. Enjoy your day in Paradise and after lunch and some free time for you, you will sail over to Coco East or directly to Corazon de Jesus and the landing strip for the flight next day.

Transfers out: Since we are flexible and can adapt to your preferred checking in/landing  hour, the captain will decide wether to spend the night in Coco or sail over to Corazón de Jesus.

 

Once in Corazón de Jesus, the captain will take you to the runway for your 40 min flight to Albrook local terminal in Panama City.

Private flights to San Blas

Take into consideration that this itinerary can/will be modified by the captain if the weather does not allow such route. Normally in high season this does not occur, in summer chances are a bit higher but San Blas is absolutely amazing and there are more than 360 islands from which to choose from.

Main differences between flying in and taking a road transfer:

  1. With the road transfer, the actual boarding of the catamaran after the transfer takes around 5 hours, and due to the water taxi schedule, exit of the boat  must be done at around 7:00 AM. Flying  in can be done at any time you desire and puts you in the catamaran after a 40 minute private flight. Exit is at the same time you landed in San Blas, thus gaining 4 hours of charter in comparison to the charter booked with road transfer.

  2. Flying in: no need to experience the frequent land border chaos and slow -moving bureaucratic procedures.

  3. Mosquitos and at times chitra (san Flies) at the ports if taking the road in.

  4. Water taxi duration with road transfer is around 40 minutes, if you fly in, there is no water taxi since the catamaran is right next to the runway.

  5. Take the road in and you will pass through the most touristic of San Blas, fly in and you will land in the most secluded and pristine part of the San Blas Islands.

  6. Price between these two types of transfers differ. Road transfers are $75/person/way and private flight transfers start at $180/person/way

  7. Fly in and travel light, airplanes are sensitive to weight. You don’t need much in San Blas any way... extra luggage can be left at the airline at no extra cost. If you are coming in by road, weight limits are more permisive.
