San Blas Islands, Panama

The San Blas Islands are located along
the Caribbean coast of Panama east of
the Panama Canal and stretch almost
to the Colombian border in a series of
approximately 350 islands, of which no
more than 50 are inhabited by the
Guna Indians.  Only a 20-minute plane
ride, or 21/2-hour truck ride  from
Panama City, a trip to the San Blas
islands will transport you centuries into
the past. The friendly Guna Indians,
who run all the islands as an
autonomous province with minimal
interference from the national
government, have maintained their own
economic system, language, customs
and culture, with distinctive dress,
legends, music and dance. The area is
surrounded by reefs, and offers
wonderful sailing, snorkeling, and
swimming opportunities. One of the
best ways to visit these islands is on a
sailing charter.
