The San Blas Islands are a group of islands in the Archipelago de San Blas, located in the Northwest of Panama facing the Caribbean Sea.
There are 378 islands within the archipelago and they are scattered around in an area of about 100 square miles. If you leave the Golfo de San Blas by boat you will enter the Caribbean Sea. The majority of the 378 islands have no inhabitants, but on the larger ones, you will find the gentle native people known as the Guna. These people can be found on the larger inhabited Islands; Aguja Island, Guanidup Island, Chichime, Yandup Island and El Porvenir.
“Imagine a turquoise archipelago with one island for every day of the year. With white sand and waving palms, these Caribbean islands cheat no one’s version of Paradise. San Blas is Home to the Kuna, an autonomous indigenous group who run San Blas with minimal interference from the national government.”
