Hi I am hoping to visit San Blas islands for a few days in August and was wondering the cheapest and best way to get there from Panama city?
you can either rent a car and drive to Carti (around 2.5 hours) or you can book a driver with a 4x4 for normally USD 25 pp one way and they will pick you up from your hotel in Panama City.
It is a very nice drive.
Another option is to fly from Albrook Airport in Panama City, to El Porvenir, with Copa or Taca, I guess.Edited: 10:55 am, July 03, 2012
How would you make contact with a driver?Edited: 4:05 pm, August 06, 2012
there are some companies offering it on the internet, or I can give you the no. of one of the kunas I normally sail with and he will know sb for sure
We're going in April and we're hoping to get a driver. How did you end up getting there?
I'm still working on our arrangements. It hasn't been easy to get a reply from the tour group I've contacted but when I had my email translated to Spanish I got a preliminary response and I'm waiting not for the final pricing.
I heard the airport in Porvenir is open and there are flights from Panama City - does anyone know if this is correct?
I have heard the airport in Porvenir has reopened and that it is now possible to fly from Panama City to Porvenir. Does anyone know if this is correct?

I am coming to Panama over Christmas. I was thinking of going to San Blas. We are going to have 13 people. Where is the best place to stay. We need as nice as possible. What are the things to do there? Is Dec. a bad time to go?
