It’s a group of islands in the north of Panama, each one is unique and beautiful, operated by the local Indians. Great beaches, crystal clear water and good atmosphere. Extremely recommended

This location was basically a back to nature trip with exception of the use of motorboats to get around the islands. The cool waters complement the warmth from the sun that hits your skin and takes your busy life (if you are having one) away...More
