How To Get There
The road to San Blas through the densely forested jungle highlands of Panama can only be negotiated by licensed 4×4 transporters. The Kuna Yala will not allow any other vehicles to enter carrying foreigners, thus the only way to to get to Cabanas Pelicano is with the 4×4 vehicles that leave Panama City daily between 5am and 6am. The drive is approx 2.5-3hrs, depending on road and weather conditions. The 4×4 transporters can hold up to 7 passengers, it can be a squeeze at times and we advise all clients only to take a small bag containing what they need for their stay in the San Blas. All the 4×4 vehicles are licensed and controlled by the Kuna and although we do our best to make sure they provide a good service they can sometimes be late, unfriendly and unpredictable. With no other choice we and you just have to be patient, it normally runs without any problems, but better be aware and prepared in our eyes.
El Porvenir Airport in the San Blas has now been re-opened after renovations. The flight leaves Allbrook airport in Panama City at 6am and arrives 25 mins later at 6.25am into El Porvenir, San Blas.

Flights can often only be booked a couple of months in advance as their booking system does not allow for more, so bear that in mind when booking. We can book Cabanas Pelicano but may have to wait to book your flight and on some occasions flights may not be available leaving the 4×4 route as the only alternative.
