The San Blas Islands are the best place to explore the rich culture of Panama’s indigenous people, the Guna.
San Blas is an autonomous territory of Panama formally called Kuna Yala, with reference to the native inhabitants. It translates directly to “Land of the Kuna”. The islands are not yet discovered by the massive tourism industry and in full control by the native Kuna’s. The Kuna’s protect their lands against mass tourism and keep them healthy, pristine and beautiful. This makes the San Blas islands of Panama unique if you are searching for off the beaten track and untouched nature in combination with some traditional culture.
San Blas is an idyllic group of over 360 palm-fringed islands with white-sand beaches and the clear, turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.
