The San Blas are an archipelago of more than 350 islands located in the Caribbean off the coast of Panama. These tropical islands, covered with white sand and coconut groves, are pristine environments inhabited only by the Kuna, its indigenous Indians. The Kuna have resisted change and maintained their traditional culture ever since the Spanish made contact over 500 years ago. San Blas province has its own government, and each island has a chief.
The intricate stitchery produced by the women of the Cuna Indians is world famous and not to be missed. Their primitive culture is maintained in this archipelago that seems to resist the effects of time, offering you a glimpse of a unique island society.
