A Beach day in Paradise!!!
Mar 2020
We decided on this tour to spend a whole day relaxing on the beach. We've done the San Blas day tour before, which was amazing as well, but sometimes we wished to have more time relaxing on the beach and swimming in the ocean. The nice part of this tour is that you are not spending the whole day with a large tour of tourists being shuffled from island to island. We were the only couple that got to enjoy the beach all to ourselves. We returned to Panama relaxed and sunburned :)))
