Clothing and personal kit. What do I need?

The answer is as little as possible. You are coming to a warm climate for good reason. Temperatures in San Blas are seldom below 25centigrade. It is usually humid too. There are no restaurants and nightlife. You are aiming at a shoulder bag or small ‘daypack’ knapsack or satchel. You will probably bring more liquor and electronic equipment than clothing.

We recommend the following:

  • Your Passport (must have with you to come to the islands)
  • Extra cash (no cash machines available on islands)
  • 2 to 3 swimsuits
  • Shorts
  • T shirts.
  • Lightweight, waterproof jacket with hood
  • Caps or hats
  • Sunglasses
  • Rubber or plastic sandals or crocs type shoes only
  • Towel
  • Water Bottle
  • Toiletries and specific medicines of course.

All saves space. You will have much more space in your cabin and avoid hoisting large baggage in and out of transfer vehicles and ‘lancha’ boats, or the plane.  We can discuss making arrangements for leaving your main luggage in Panama City.
