San Blas Islands

Step back a thousand years to pre-Columbian times as you visit the land of the Cuna Indians. Explore a primitive thatched-hut villages, and shop for exquisite multi-layer tapestries called 'molas'. Your ship will anchor among these lush, low-lying isles off the Panamanian coast. The Cuna Indians have lived here for centuries, maintaining their colorful traditions and skill of creating elaborately appliqued molas. Go ashore to visit them, and perhaps to bargain for a souvenir of your day in paradise.
