San Blas was heavenly. We ended up on Chichime in the sort of tent that costs £20, on a deserted beach. No internet, no cell phone reception. I could have stayed for weeks.

Panama Travel Unlimited. It has a desk at Hostel Mamallena but I'm not staying there

Can't remember ours off the top of my head, but it wasn't that one. We were at the strictly budget end, obv.

I'd go back to San Blas anytime. We even happened upon a dolphin unintentionally, and got to swim alongside him

Ah. Ignore me. It was Panama Travel Unlimited. For some reason that rang no bells, but I just checked my emails, with you mentioning Mamallena. We stayed there too.

Of course, the trip itself is run by the local islanders, but ours ran very smoothly, and they were chilled but efficient. I hope you get our beach - but I'm sure all the islands are great.
