The cabanas and dorm are very basic, they have sand floors and lights in the evening only. The restrooms are separate from all accommodations and very basic as well. There are 2 toilets and 2 showers shared between all guests. There are not outlets for charging in most of the cabanas however guests may charge devices in the restaurant area in the evening. The meals provided on the island are simple and they do not generally offer much variety.  Though we monitor the quality of food through guests and visits we do not control the menu.  We are constantly providing feedback to the islands in an effort to change this, but the reality is the meal qualities vary. It is recommended that guests bring some snacks if they have big appetites or very specific dietary needs. We do not offer refunds or discount for rain or bad weather unless a trip is cancelled by us for safety reason.  May through October are months where it can rain very often, and November through April can have high winds that make the seas rough.  The weather changes often in the islands, our experienced guides and hosts do their best to keep guests dry, but the islands are a very rustic area and guests must be prepared accordingly for changing weather conditions. Please see our Refund Policy for more details. Please take a look at out Terms and Conditions  for the trips. DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS TRIP AND EL ORIGINAL? The only difference between El Original and Original Chill is the number of day trips. El Original includes a day trip each day, Original Chill includes just 1 day trip.  El Original has been the most popular trip in San Blas for 5 years, and Original Chill is just a bit more relaxed version of this same experience. If you book Original Chill and would like to add day trips with our guide while in the islands you can do so.  Each additional day trip costs $25 and must be paid for in cash. The home island for both trips is the island of Asseryaladub.  Our bilingual guide stays overnight on this island with our guests, so the guide will be accessible whenever needed.  Also, both trips include a visit to the Guna island community of Carti Sugdub, the most populated island in the area and the commercial center of the islands.  With both trips guests get to leave the islands at 3pm on their last day.

Cacique Cruiser provides a bilingual local guide for this package.   This is a guided group trip so the the route is planned between these islands 1-3 days ahead.  We will not be able to tell you which islands the trip will visit further in advance but we can tell you that you will see 1-2 of  our favorite islands each day. Guests on Coconut Express will get the opportunity to visit the famous shipwreck at Isla Perro OR one of the sunken islands popular for snorkeling and seeing starfish. We do not offer refunds or discount for rain or bad weather unless a trip is cancelled by us for safety reason.  May through October are months where it can rain very often, and November through April can have high winds that make the seas rough.  The weather changes often in the islands, our experienced guides and hosts do their best to keep guests dry, but the islands are a very rustic area and guests must be prepared accordingly for changing weather conditions.
