San Blas Isands, Panama October 2008
Situated in the Caribbean Sea a few miles off the north coast of Panama, the San Blas de Cuna Islands are the home of the Cuna, a traditional society of Native Americans. Most of these tropical islands are very small. Many are surrounded by coral reefs. The islands are part of Panama, but are primarily administered by the Cuna tribe. (Click on pictures to enlarge.)
Dwight and I visited son, David, and Vicky on board Windfreak, a 36-foot Pearson sailboat while they were cruising the San Blas Islands. More pictures of their circumnavigation of the Caribbean Sea can be seen at http://windfreak.net.
