It was nice days on the beautiful San Blas Islands. However, the transport is sometimes a bit chaotic - at least for western conditions - but everything worked and we arrived on the respective islands. The sanitary facilities were expected to be rudimentary and you should be prepared for salt water showers that only work at certain times. Drinking can be bought on all islands. However, there is nothing else to buy (food / sunscreen, etc.). The food was good on all islands but very one-sided, on one island the same fish was prepared for lunch and dinner. Eggs are the vegetarian alternative.
