The Guna Yala is a group of natives that live along the Caribbean Coast of Panama. They have land farther into the continent, but the paradisiac islands are their most important asset. The Guna Yala archipelago is composed of more than 400 islands; the vast majority are uninhabited. About 35 islands have a village. In the morning, we visited one of the villages. We learned about the culture and looked at the art and souvenirs the people sell to visitors, especially the Molas. We also enjoyed the beach on one little island. With crystal clear water and white sand, snorkeling was amazing.
