After a 2 hr drive ending on a long and windy road we got to beautiful san blas. We saw natural Starfish and snorkeled in a beautiful coral reef. we visited some small Islands and saw how the Kuna live. Was a long but fantastic day.

Osiris speaking perfect English Spanish AND Cuni took us on a wonderful tour lasting all day and showing us things I never imagined. Our family went from 6-48 years old. We all were captivated the entire time. I'd happily join her again. Bambi showed us what Cuni life is like in his own home on the island.
