Island by Donna, Tom & Wayne & Elaine
We had the pleasure of sailing in the
San Blas with our friends Wayne and
Elaine just before Christmas 2008. We've
read so many things about this area from
sailors and Panamanians that we wanted
to see it for ourselves. It was
everything everyone had said. Pristine
is the first word that comes to mind,
unspoiled, traditional, and a trip back
in time. The Kunas that inhabit and own
this area are fiercely jealous of their
land. Some of the historical stories are
pretty amazing. We booked our sailing
from San Blas Sailing - our skipper was
Mats on his boat Da Capo - he was touted
as a chef and he was great at creating
master pieces from such a small galley.
the boat was comfortable, Mats was
knowledgeable and a character at the
same time. We'd do this again.
Enjoy the pictures.
