SAN BLAS PANAMA

San Blas is an indian territory in Panama. There are 378 islands, a lot without population. You can have your own paradise.
The indians, Kuna Yala, are very friendly. They like to trade with their "Molas", but they also supply you with sea food and fruit.
One of the last paradises.
There are groups of islands as West and East Hollandes Cays, Lemon Cays, Chichime Cays.
My wife called sailing in San Blas for Expedition Robinson. There is also one island named Isla Robinson.
Sailors ranked San Blas as # 3 of all places they liked to visit.

NALUNEGA

In this cottage you can get a cold beer. But, there are no bars for stronger beverages.
Simply, the indians can not have access to alcohol, when they start, they donīt stop.
But, they have their celebrations with alcohol consumtions. Itīs a last man standing.

And they donīt have chickens/hens. Before they had, but it was only problems because the neighbores always thiefed them.
