    What guests are saying:

    “Stop! You need not search any further. This is the place to book. Another couple who had been to San Blas twice before invited us to come and experience San Blas Islands. I searched YouTube and Googled and read countless reviews, most having mixed feelings and making me unsure I would go. Some thought their island (there are over 300) was nice but the toilets were nasty. Some didn’t like their “rooms”. So I thought I would take a chance and check Airbnb and found only one- Jonathan and Big Orange Island. Jonathan is a super host with 100% -5 star ratings, and having used Airbnb before knew that I couldn’t go wrong. I came to realize I made a wise choice. First off- since San Blas is so isolated with no WiFi and a Panama visit itself has so many moving parts, Jonathan’s communication was outstanding and 100% accurate. No glossing over, no over selling, no hiding facts. When he says the roads through Guna Yala are very hilly and curvy and you may experience motion sickness it is 100% true. No one in our group got sick and this was part of the entire experience. You are not headed to a Honolulu Beach condo but a true authentic, primitive dessert island to fully unwind and engage in an unblemished Guna culture. Jonathan gives it to you straight. 2. Pricing- pretty much controlled by the Guna so shopping around is just a waste of your time. But where else in the world can you step out of your bedroom onto a deserted moon lit beach and in 10-15 steps be ankle deep in the clear, warm Caribbean water for $100 per person per night? This is an amazing value! 3. No crowds. This island as I recall has 5 or 6 huts and was “fully booked” so our group of four shared it with five other people. A wonderful private experience. We always felt like we were the only ones there, and mingled with the others when we wished . 4. The rooms are circular palm thatched huts probably 15 x 15 feet, made not as some tourist trap facsimile but in an authentic rustic Guna Indian style. My wife and I each had a double bed. Originally the room had only one, but I am a tall guy so we asked and immediately had a second bed installed with mosquito netting and the sand beach for the floor. The only other thing in the room was a table. This is what made the experience so authentic and wonderful. But the huts are very clean, fresh and well kept. No bugs and no mosquitoes in February. There was one large public shower and toilet facility that could accommodate two people at at time. Primitive as expected yet super clean and everything working. I am Not sure if there was hot water but with the heat of the day the water temp of the shower was very nice and no one complained. 5. The staff. Jonathan is a Panamanian who lives in Panama City. His partner Elvis is a very modern Guna who speaks perfect English. They have a very close relationship with the Guna and act as the booking agent for Big Orange Island which is owned and “operated” by the Guna. As mentioned, Jonathan was always in communication with us and as I discovered, the Guna staff on the island, to make sure we were completely happy (which we always were). The Guna speak their own language and Spanish. And while Jonathan is correct in saying that they do not speak English, the main staff members do know some English words and are so delightful and helpful, somehow their was no breakdown in communicating. It helps if you remember a few words from your high school Spanish classes (hey, after all you are traveling to Panama, a Spanish speaking country), but don’t worry if you don’t. All will be well and you still have an awesome experience. 6. Food and water. You can bring your own snacks, water and beer, but the Guna sell water and beer for $2 US. No snacks for sale though. When Jonathan tells you the food is authentic Guna, believe that. Again it was part of what made this such an authentic wonderful life time experience. But if you are a very picky eater, bring your own food. Lunch and Dinner is cooked fish-the whole fish. While we never did, another person on the island upgraded to fresh lobster for one dinner, which I believer was an additional nominal cost. Very tasty yet nothing on it except some ketchup or hot sauce on the table. It included Cooked plantains and yuca and a little fresh salad. Watermelon for dessert. Portions are adequate but if you are a huge dinner guy you will want to supplement, but our group was totally satisfied. Breakfast was scramble eggs and pancakes. Jonathan’s description was spot on. 7. Transportation to and from the island. My fellow traveler is an international businessman with his office in Panama City. He suggested we use his limo company, but Jonathan politely talked me out of it. This could be a bit confusing and chaotic. Let Jonathan arrange this for you. Like everything else with San Blas, the Guna strictly control who comes and goes into their territory and regulate entrance fees, etc. I am an experienced European traveler and would have been frustrated had I gone ahead and booked my own transportation. Prepay Jonathan the fees and let him do it. The hotel pick up and delivery was on time and flawless and the drivers very courteous and helpful. They made sure we got on and off the right boats and never left us until we did. 8. Speaking of boats, the ride to and from the island, you guessed it, are controlled by the Guna. They are very sea worthy skiffs which can handle probably 10-12 people each. The Guna are”

    “Wow. Spent one of the most memorable days of my life sitting on the beach on a small remote island. I will never forget it and would come back in a heart beat. White sands, crystal blue water, perfect weather. Don't hesitate to book this trip. I promise you won't regret it. A few things to expect that come with staying on an remote uninhabited island: Traveling to/from isn't always pleasant. The car ride to the port is long and winding and bumpy. If you get car sick easily, come prepared (but it's totally worth it). It's more like camping than anything else. Expect critters in your hut with you (lizards, crabs, curious birds, an occasional bug). But the beds are clean and comfortable and come with mosquito netting to give you a measure of security. Trust me, you won't have any problems sleeping because the sound of the ocean just a few feet away is the most relaxing thing. While there are bathrooms with running water, that water is cold. Expect a very brisk shower. Again, more like camping than else. Jonathan is super helpful and coordinates the car and boat ride to the island. Once you are there the natives take good care of you. They are very friendly and respectful and know how to fry up some delicious fish.”

    “This place is PARADISE!! We were disappointed we could not enjoy it to its fullness. We had a bit of bad luck with the weather. We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed the sun for about 2 hours when we came and 2 hours just before we left. The rest of the time was raining. I believe this does not happen very often, but there is NOTHING to do in this kind of weather. So I recommend you to take something to read, some games and something warmer to wear just to be sure. There were two other couples with us and that was it. Six people (and few locals) on the entire island. This was amazing. The water is really crystal clear and there is even small coral reef for snorkeling. Staying in the hut with a sand floor and listen to the ocean at night was also quite romantic. The bathroom was surprisingly clean and completely sufficient. After all, you don't go to a remote tropical island to live like in a 5-star hotel. I wish I could speak at least a little bit of Spanish because locals can't speak a word in English. This was not an issue at all for day to day things (like when you wanted a beer, or coconut, etc..) but I would love to learn more about them and this way I couldn't. Jonathan was really helpful, checked on us every day and promptly helped us with everything (like when we needed a blanket for a colder night and he just called the locals and it was immediately done). One recommendation - stay at least 2 nights. The trip to the islands from Panam City is quite expensive (about 200 dollars), takes at least 3 hours, and the last part of the road is really bad - all of us in the car felt carsick. So it is not worth it for one night. Finally - this place is really like no other - and I hope I will be in this area someday again to stay one more time hopefully in much better weather :)”
