San Blas Islands

TERRITORY OF THE GUNA INDIANS

 San Blas is the name that the government gave to the area, but since they got their autonomy the name that the Indians gave them is Kuna Yala or Guna Yala which means Mountain of Gunas. The capital of the region is El Porvenir.

This territory was relatively closed to foreigners until the revolution of 1925. After this year the Indians claimed independence from Panama, which gave them the authority to govern the region autonomously. If you visit the San Blas area you are bound to follow the rules of the Gunas Indians.

These islands preserve the ancestral essence of a different world thanks to the Guna culture maintaining its customs and traditions. You will see your women who wear ¨molas¨, colorful fabrics and striking designs that characterize them, their costume is handmade and is complemented by a series of bracelets and earrings.

Men usually engage in fishing in their handmade wooden canoes, also called "Ulu's". The fish and lobster they get are subsequently sold or exchanged for goods on the continent.

Do not miss the opportunity to interact with the Guna Indians, they are reserved but very friendly.
