Trips and Itineraries for Kuna Yala
A Guide to the Best Places to Visit in Panama

About Kuna Yala
This quiet, yet perfect island ic cut off from human interference. The water here is crystal clear, light blue, and warm. Not warm as in comfortable-to-dive-in; warm as in jacuzzi-time-warm. Which makes sense considering the islands are located only 9 degrees north of the equator.Conch shells are scattered throughout the beach, and on the island we visited, the local family enjoyed making the shells into various home accessories. Activities mostly consist of snorkeling, swimming, diving, and sunbathing.
