Panama fulfilled all our dreams as the final destination of our adventures in Central America. We visited the magnificent coffee landscapes of Boquete, the paramount metropolis Panama City, filled with contrast between slum and skyscrapers and ended the Latin American leg of our journey on the blissful San Blas Islands. We didn’t get to see all of Costa Rica, but both the capital San José and the surfing town of Puerto Viejo had a lot to offer.
The San Blas Islands of Panama = paradise.
The 365 islands are home to the Kuna Indians, whose lifestyle is still very close to pre-colonial times.
There’s not much else to do than to simply enjoy life.
The islands vary a lot in size.
As most indigenous people, the Kunas are unfortunately not resistant to Western temptations.
But there is still a long way to resorts and internet connections.
