Island & Accommodation

Tour is based on Isla Diablo, a popular island in San Blas with a beautiful beach and surrounded by other smaller islands so it’s an ideal base for day tours. Isla Perro and the famous shipwreck are a short boat ride from Diablo and offer great snorkeling. Other nearby islands you can visit from here include Isla Estrella (star fish island), Isla Pelicano, Banidup, Chichime, Isla Iguana, and La Piscina.

Diablo offers different accommodation options with some of the better facilities and a large eating area next to the beach. The shared and private cabanas are basic but comfortable, privates all have wooden floors.

There are no charging outlets in cabanas but guests can use the main restaurant area for charging devices.
Meals are prepared locally and are generally simple. The quality can vary and meals provided may not offer much variety. We do recommend that guests bring along snacks.
