The San Blas islands are located on the Caribbean side of Panama and are known as the Comarca de Guna Yala. These islands are controlled by the Guna Yala indigenous people who gained their independence in 1925. Our guide, Jesus Prestan talks about the revolution (which is celebrated the entire month of February) and the development of their flag. Please note that some confuse the symbol with the Nazi swastika, but it is actually based on a Hindu symbol. The islands are ideal for snorkeling!
