Imagine standing on the shore of a pristine island and taking in a panoramic view of a tranquil turquoise ocean and several other islands, some even more unspoiled than the one you’re on. Visualize the mountains in the distance and taking a carefree walk around the entire island in a mere three minutes. Envision sharing this space with local people with a colorful culture and a lifestyle that will make you appreciate and question yours.
The heavenly strip of Caribbean coast is real. The autonomous islands of Guna Yala are home to the indigenous Guna.
Chances are a Guna will smile proudly as he/she tells you that there’s an island for every day of the year. The Guna are kindhearted easygoing people with strong beliefs about life, religion and nature. They believe that the mainland is sacred; hence it is not developed at all. Though the Guna have hundreds of islands at their feet, they choose to inhabit a few of them.
Soak in the sun and savor the moment!
