I didn’t know what to expect, but I knew I wanted to go there. Being there meant that I could finally understand the lyrics of an old Dutch children’s song from “kinderen voor kinderen” called op een onbewoond eiland. They sing about life on a uninhabited island and it’s one of my favorites kids songs. Now a dream was coming true. ...read more!
Picture this: white sandy beaches with coconut palm trees offering shade throughout the island, huts made of tree branches covered by palm leaves with a bed standing on a sandy floor, and you’ll most likely only have about 20 other tourists on the San Blas island you’re staying on beside the few local Kuna families who live there. ...read more!
