Our first day in the San Blas Islands, and an early start to get there. We got picked up from our hotel at 5:30am (he was only 30 minutes late), then drove 2 hours to the El Porvenir port. From there, we met the rest of the group we were spending 5 days with, consisting of 3 couples (besides ourselves) and a single person. Majority of people were aged between 25-35. We then went on a lancha boat ride (and got soaking wet) lasting 90 minutes, were we finally got on the Maly yacht. It's fair to say the boat is beautiful and we got our own cabin, with en-suite. We met Jules (the captain) and his first mate (Ricardo), who put on an awesome spread of treats and delicious snacks for brunch. 

For for the rest of the day it was snorkelling around paradise islands, then it was the obligatory drunken first night antics and dancing around the fire. We have a feeling we're going to like this way of life for the next 5 days...
