It is necessary that the car in which you are heading to the port is 4X4 or 4X2, otherwise, the police presence that is before entering the reserve of San Blas, will not allow you to go through for security reasons. The road is not dangerous, however, there are hills that smaller cars could not climb easily.
Once you arrive in Puerto Carti, you will have to pay for the parking, since it is not included, but the port fees are included in the price.
You will board your boat at 8:30 a.m. in the morning and go to your first island, which is normally Isla Perro Chico. Here you will spend the morning relaxing and enjoying the beautiful beach and the island.
You will receive lunch around midday, which comes with a beer, soda or water (included in the tour price). Lunch is normally on the same Island or else on Isla Diablo, but can change sometimes.
After lunch, you will be taken to the Natural Pool where you can swim and hold starfishes (please do not take the starfishes out of water). If there is time, you can be taken to Isla Fragata to experience another island, before returning to the port.
