Panama City: Money Heist and San Blas Islands Day Trip

1. Panama City: Money Heist and San Blas Islands Day Trip

Be collected from your accommodation in Panama City between 5:20 AM and 6:00 AM to start the day trip. Drive 2.5 hours to San Blas Port, Carti, and then take a local Panga boat to the first of the San Blas islands. Here, enjoy a light breakfast of fresh fruit and take some time to sunbathe with provided umbrellas, beach chairs, and towels. You can also use kayaks or paddleboards to explore the island surroundings. Afterward, enjoy a lunch of fresh fish, rice, and salad. After lunch, sail onwards to Perro Chico, known as the best snorkeling spot in the San Blas Islands. Here, you can see a variety of colorful fish species and a sunken boat. Next, visit Island Pelicano, made famous by the Netflix series Money Heist. Finally, head to the natural swimming pool. This is a bank of sand in the middle of the ocean where you can walk or swim around to find your starfish. At 3:30 PM, sail back towards the port and return to Panama City in the evening.  On weekends, before coming back to the port, you'll visit one of the largest communities in San Blas to witness a traditional dance put on by locals.

First I have to talk about how great the customer service is. When I got to Panama, Google blocked my email due to suspicious activity so I couldn't get the info on the tour. I emailed them from another account and they helped me get all my information transferred over so I wouldn't miss the activity. This was <12 hours before I was supposed to be picked up. So great customer service. The activity itself was great. The islands were beautiful and relaxing, There was a little bit of something for everyone. The beaches were beautiful with soft white sand. The water felt so good after being in the sun. There were paddleboats and snorkling. Several Guna Yala women had stands set up if you wanted to shop. One island had hammocks where you could relax listening to the ocean waves and feel the cool breeze. One had volleyball nets set up. Another had a bar where you could get drinks. And everywhere girls were taking instagram pics. The boat rides were fun and wet.

Wonderful day. Everything is as described in the schedule. Pick up at 5h30, 3h drive including a fairly eventful hour. Arrival around 9h-9h30 to embark on small boats. 1st drop on a magnificent island with a bar, a swing etc. 2nd stop: Island where fresh fruit, paddle and canoe await you. 3: direction the natural swimming pool: snorkeling to admire fish and stars 4: direction Pero chico (casa de papel) to eat, swim and relax. Back on dry land around 4 p.m. To be done again without hesitation.

It was a lot of fun! Really enjoyed meeting the locals and seeing the beautiful islands, beaches, fish and starfish.

A really great experience. You just have to see it, something really extraordinary.

Beautiful experience, the place is wonderful! Totally recommended ♥️
