Smile Don't pass San Blas by

Hi we are Dave and Leiann aboard the S/V Chrysalis II. We just wanted to get the word out about San Blas. Like many we were dubious about stopping because of all we have heard about San Blas Norm and crime. While our friends on Velella Velella had their dingy stolen, they say that they would still recomend a vist. We have been here for a month while getting some work done on the boat. We hauled here for a month for a total of $600 in and out. And were were able to do our own work! Deal!! Anyway we have had a great time. We just ignore Norm (stay off the radio 22). Dispite dire warnings of the dangers of gingos being out at night. We go out nearly every night and say hi to all and get smiles and waves back. We went on the "jungle Tour" real crocodiles, a don't miss attraction. Explored the old spanish fort and bicycle'd all over. We rented a nice clean little place here for $350 a month. Places a little less nice and clean can be had for $175. Vist "Fluffy" the real life crocodile at Billy Bob's bar (google it). As for the famous San Blas no-see-ams, are now where as bad as has been published. We got a local repelent that works well. We spend most evenings eating ice cream in the town square, under the old church (google the bells of San Blas). So don't miss out. Fair Winds and God's speed
