The drive (with Mr. Manuel, booked via Hostal Mamallena) up to the "port" was fairly good. Our driver was on time, drove safe and we just picked up one more group. No long wait.
We got some good seats in the car, though I feel really sorry for those sitting in the last row, which was me on the way back.

3 People squeezed in some kind of emergency seats which are usually just for two, is a no go!
At least they shouldn't be charged the same price as the others.
In means of safety this is a no go aswell, because in last row there are just two Seat belts.

Once arrived at the "port" things seemed to be pretty organized, just had to wait 30 minutes until the boat picked us up.

After an approximately one hour ride with a gas stop we reached the Island naranjal and the Cabañas Eneida.

The Island seemed nice on the first look, though our group of 8 on the boat expected it less populated.

I stayed at Cabanas Iron in April 2011 for 4 days. It was amazing! The San Blas islands are beautiful no matter which island you choose to stay on, it just depends what you want. There was a party island nearby, but we chose to stay in Cabanas Iron because we didn't want to listen to crappy techno music being blasted all day long when we wanted to relax in one of the most beautiful places on earth!

Cabanas Iron is run by Iron Garcia and his wife. They are extremely lovely people! Iron is so helpful, interesting and happy. Iron has taken some bartending classes and makes a KILLER pina colada. They are delicious. The food they serve during the day is also delicious. You can use their fridge, so I would recommend bringing a few things if you want to snack between meals. I also think water isn't included, so you should bring some if you don't want to rack up your bill.

I speak Spanish, so it was easy for me to communicate. My boyfriend doesn't, but he could still manage...
