How much does travelling cost?

San Blas Islands (we never made it due to bad weather :( if you have price info please let me know)


  • Tour from Panama City = $300+
  • Tour starting from Panama City via San Blas to Colombia = $375 if to Carpurgana, $500+ if to Cartagena. (Check San Blas Adventures) Cartagena trip spends 2 days just at sea.

  • Flights also available, but then have to pay water taxi/ boats becomes expensive
