==== SAN BLAS – SIGHTSEEING
San Blas boasts several attractive beaches, which have been kept safe from large-scale development by the area’s notorious population of jejenes or no-see-ums, that are mostly active at twilight. San Blas sits between two estuaries, the Pozo and El Rey, which are the main entries into a vast wetlands system. The many rivers that flow through the mangrove forests serve as the breeding grounds for fish.
