Day 4: San Blas Day Tour: Transfer in 4 x 4 to the Carti port where you will take an small Indigenous indigenous boat to visit some of the most amazing islands in this unique Caribbean Archipelago, the islands are inhabited by the independent Kuna Yala Indians; who run all the islands as an autonomous province with minimal interference from the national government, they maintain their own economic system, language, customs and culture, with distinctive dress, legends, music and dance and thus have avoided traditional tourism development.
