Mexcaltitan (it sounds pretty much the way its spelled... pronounced "mex-kahl-tee-tahn") is about 1 hour from San Blas. Its a small island in the estuary, accessed only by boat. There are about 300 residents on the island. It is said to be the original settlement of the Aztecs, whos pottery can be seen at the museum (when its open). Stay a while and have lunch at the restaruant overlooking the water. Getting there by bus is lengthy and difficult. Its better to go with a group of people and take a guide. On the way back go to Santiago if you have the time.
