The journey from Panama City to the island was well organized and all right. The Kuna were so much nicer than expected and the food was really good. But you have to bring snacks as breakfast is at 7, lunch at 12 and dinner at...More

The San Blas islands have every potential to be this picture perfect paradise we all have in our heads. So I was pretty disappointed with my 3 days on Chichime, which is supposed to be one of the best islands. Here is why: 1) trash...More

We stayed in Chichime for two nights. The island is really pretty but very poorly managed. There are two main parts handled by two groups. You should definitely avoid the one under Aaron's control. Lots of garbage as soon as you leave the main areas,...More

This place is really, really beautiful...Don't expect luxury of modern facilities; they are basic, extremely basic, but it's worth the sacrifice for a few days. The island is amazing! Yes, food is little but it is ok, the cabins are very rustic but the environment...More

There are two families on Chichime Island. You should consider to stay with Aaron & Dixie. Great hosts, great food, rustic but better shaped cabins with wooden floor, electricity, new shared bathroom (we have been lucky to be the first one to inaugurate them ;-)...More
