If you are looking for a nice place to spend an afternoon and want to play in the water this is a great spot. It's a nice big bay with calm, clear water. It is a very shallow entry and great for kids. There are restaurants with food and drinks.

Worth a visit for sure. Just make sure you have transport - our taxi didn't show up at 4:00pm so we walked to town.

Nice swimming spots, surfers love this place. The food and drink is good at any of the various ramadas (if someone is around)...it's a great little spot...check with Juan Bananas if you'd like surf lessons.

San Blas is a fishing town and this is a good place to taste the local catch. I highly recommend the shrimp with garlic.

The bay is so protected that it looks like an inland lake. Swing from a hammock as the tide tip toes in under you. The area is buggy at times, so be prepared.
