San Blas Islands
Panama's san Blas Islands form a necklace of white sandy beaches and lush, tropical palms, nestled in the waters just off the Gulf of San Blas. The islands are rich in culture, being home to the fiercely traditional Kuna tribe, adding another dimension to any visit to these paradise isles.
The San Blas archipelago is made up of over 365 islands and cayes, only 49 of which are inhabited. San Blas is home to the Kuna, an autonomous indigenous group who are rich in rites and traditions that cleverly managed to retain their tribal identity, happily leading a morally balanced life.
The sparkling waters of the surrounding Caribbean Sea are perfect for sailing, and the lack of tourism in the area makes this an attractive option for a beach getaway.
