PC to El Porvenir Transportation?This is been a pretty vague part of my research so far, but I was curious to know if anyone had any suggestions on transportation from Panama City to El Porvenir, for the purpose to exploring the San Blas islands. I would prefer not to fly (besides, the El Porvenir airstrip is supposedly closed anyway). I was curious to know what the bus situation is like, if there even is a bus (there isn't much written about it). I've also read something about hiring a 4x4 or even sharing a taxi from PC.... Can anyone shed some light on possibly the cheapest way to get there?
Thanks in advance!

There are three common ways to go to san blas, besides private yachts, choppers and chartered planes.
1. like mentioned above you will be picked up at your hotel for more or less $ 25 and dropped of at one of the three marninas at Cartis ( marina is big word) from there you take a boat to an island. (could be costly)
2.rent a car (must be 4x4) or at least look like one.
3.fly to porvenir, airport is open next week.
hostals offer trips around san blas by boats otherwise the hotel in your case hotel porvenir will arrange all these things
enjoy san blas.
