Vanishing Cultures Photography | Guna Yala-Panama
Guna Yala, formerly known as San Blas, is an indigenous province in northeast Panama (Official Gazette of Panama). The capital is El Porvenir. It is bounded on the north by the Caribbean Sea, on the south by the Darién Province and Embera-Wounaan, on the east by Colombia and on the west by the province of Colón. The majority of the 378 islands have no inhabitants, but on the larger ones you will find the gentle native people known as the Kuna’s. These people can be found on the larger inhabited Islands; Aguja Island, Guanidup Island, Chichimei, Yandup Island and El Porvenir. The San Blas Islands of Panama are unique if you are searching for untouched nature and culture.
