San Blas Archipelago


San Blas Archipelago Properties, Panama

The San Blas Archipelago is composed of approximately 100 unnamed islets and 113 with names. There are no roads into the region, but small planes fly to more than a dozen landing strips daily. Off the northeast coast of Panama, palm-lined beaches, coral-ringed islands and jungle-cloaked mountains make San Blas look a lot like paradise, but the main reason for going there is to spend time with the Kuna Indians, who have managed to protect their unique culture. They live in thatched huts on about 40 of the 350 islands of the archipelago and rule their own autonomous province.
