Beaches and Islands
Panama has many islands along its Caribbean and Pacific Coast, hardly populated with lush forest, pristine beaches and shores ideal for snorkeling.
It's the picture postcard Robinson Crusoe dream and no mass tourism or high-rise constructions like elsewhere in the Caribbean.
Some are inhabitated and form part of an archipelago like Bocas del Toro. Others are nature parks like Coiba. And some are Inidgenous Territory like San Blas.
Visit to San Blas Islands
The 360 islands of San Blas are amongst the most beautiful in Panama. They are inhabited and controlled by the Guna Yala indigenous tribe. They live on the islands in their own way embracing modernity where it makes their life more comfortable but without changing their ancestral habits. They are open for visitors in day tours and overnights in basic accommodation.
