Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    One of the best excursions I have ever taken in my life. David was our tour guide and he was phenomenal! I am a solo traveler and I felt very safe during the entire trip. The boat ride was absolutely breath taking. Each island was insanely beautiful and I felt like we spent enough time at each location. The fruit and lunch options were great. All the other travelers in my group were super friendly. I do not speak any Spanish and our tour guide did speak English, some of the other travelers also helped translate when needed. I loved the hammocks on the 2nd island and loved the stop to explore all of the star fish!

    Book this trip! It’s totally worth it!

    Beautiful islands and friendly people. Just need to be prepared for cold showers, limited food and drink options. If you want something other than, water, beer, or juice, you will need to bring it. Also bring a towel!

    The waterfall hike is a bit of a hike so you should be prepared for round trip 5 hours with mud and water.

    Very memorable trip and glad we roughed it for a few days to have this experience.

    Our party of six booked a private one-day tour and had an excellent experience. Because it was just us, we had some say in which islands to visit and how long to spend. These guys were very accommodating and made it a very personal experience. Because our main interest was snorkeling, they took us to specifically great spots.
    We saw plenty of other tour boats that were group tours and we felt a little sorry for them... too crowded, and probably no "customization".
    We could not have asked for more, and if/when we visit again, we will try to book with them.
    Prep Notes:
    1. The description here currently says that prices start at $165 per person, but we paid less than that for our *private* tour, so please reach out directly to the company to get your own quote. They are very responsive via WhatsApp, but email worked also.
    2. The road trip is not as bad as some people say, just go with poor expectations and it will be OK! :-)
    3. There are restrooms available at the boat launch site, but they are not free. Some of our party used them as changing rooms instead of dressing in swim suits at the hotel.
    Kudos and thanks to Osiris and the others who served us.
    Just do it!

    This is such a great experience from Panama City! No need to worry about driving or pick ups. The team takes you door to ocean door! Great communication, delicious lunch, incredible cultural tour of the local community, would do it again!

    This tour was an adventure and not for the feint of heart! One third of the trip is through the jungle on deeply rutted, curving, narrow roads. The Toyota 4 wheel drive vehicle was navigated by Adrien who knows the roads well. Be sure to bring your passport as we went through a Panamanian checkpoint as well as upon entry to the Guna indigenous territory. One of the 6 passengers in our vehicle had overstayed his visa prompting a 45 minute delay while this dude explained his documents. The 45 minute boat trip to the islands was pretty bumpy. But once we got there…oh my! Just gorgeous! So glad we went, even though we were certainly wondering on the way there…

    San blas is a must see place: crsytal clear water and great snorkeling. Lunch was fresh seafood, I really enjoyed it. Keep in mind that the road to San Blas is not in the best conditions.

    Very nice place for a get away from the everyday life. Nice and calm place. Not much to do on the Island except swimming, reading and playing games. It was a very very bumpy ride to the port. We got very delayed because of a storm which is fair, but no one told us anything about it so we just sat in the car and waited for 40 minutes. We then got to the Island and found out that water was not included in the price and we didn't know we had to bring our own water... So we had to pay 2USD $ for 0,5L bottle of water... For two people we ended up buying 10 bottles... The food was mediocre with little variety (rice, fried fish or chicken and some Vegetables) which wasn't great for Vegetarians... We met some lovely people on our trip and talked for hours after dinner and watched a storm in the distance with a lot of lighting. The people on the Islands doesn't really speak English so be aware of that.
