Click on the catamaran charter itinerary of your choice:

 

- 7 night charter with road transfer -
7 night charter with flight transfer -

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 4 hours, and due to the water taxi schedule, exit of the boat two nights after must be done at 6:00 AM. Flying  in can be done at any time you desire and puts you in the catamaran after a 40 minute private flight. Exit after the second night 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. No need to experience the frequent land border chaos and slow -moving bureaucratic procedures.

  3. No waitings at the ports means no mosquito and specially no chitra (san Flies) bites.

  4. Water taxi duration with road transfer is around 40 minutes, if you fly in, water taxi ride is 1 minute.

  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...
