When looking for tours to San Blas there was a lot of misinformation and confusion. Some reviews made it sound like it may be too much of a hassle to visit San Blas. My fiance gets motion sickness so I was especially concerned about the drive and boat ride. She was fine and had a great time. We rented a car and did the drive ourselves from Panama City. We downloaded the maps ahead of time on Google maps. It was basically 2 roads so you won't get lost. The drive isn't as bad as they made it out to be. It took about 2hrs. 1st hour is 1 smooth road. The second hour is where it gets tricky. The road is paved but there are lots of potholes. Driving ourselves was the right decision for us because driving at our own pace kept us from getting sick. The local drivers go faster so they get there quicker but the ride looked rougher. Out of the 30 or so people we saw who took the local transportation we only saw 1 person get sick. Don't let the ride deter you. It's not that bad and the islands are totally worth it. The men at the border were pleasant and very happy to see us visiting. We showed our passports, paid the fee and were ushered through with smiles. It was about a 30 minute ride from the border gate to the dock. There are 3 docks. Make sure you know which dock you are leaving from. The tour guides were awesome. They spoke very good English and kept us informed. The boat ride was a pleasure. You will not be uncomfortable. This tour took us to the bluest waters and best beaches. The sunken ship was awesome for snorkeling. The lunch was delicious. I don't eat fish so they gave me a chicken meal. Everybody loved their meals. The natural pool was the highlight and you will be amazed. I looked at pictures before and was worried the water wouldn't be the crystal clear waters I was looking for. I was not disappointed. You will see the perfect crystal clear waters of paradise. Don't listen to the weather forecast. The forecast always shows rain. We thought we wouldn't see the sun on our visit. We saw nothing but sun. Beautiful weather on the islands. This tour will take you to see the best of the San Blas Islands. If you only have 1 day and want to see the best of the islands take this tour.
