Meet inspiring culture
Guna culture is unique and ancestral, very far from our western world.
Discover and be inspired.
Guna Yala – San Blas islands
Guna Yala, “land of the Guna” in Guna language is known to western world as San Blas.
Here are a few facts about this incredible archipelago and its people, located on the Caribbean coast of Panama.
Guna people arrived from north of Colombia, went through the Darien province of Panamá, where they were living before the arrival of the Spanish conquistadores.
San Blas was the name given by the Spanish to the area.
Like in the whole area, San Blas islands have two seasons, wet and dry. But unlike the Pacific coast of Panamá, rainfall here is much more limited !
With matriarchal organization and ancestral culture, the Guna speak their own language, called Guna.
San Blas is a territory constituted by a narrow stretch of land and 378 islands. It has a area of 2 300 square km, and only around 50 of the islands are inhabited.
Most populated islands are located close to the continent, where there is a river flowing in the Caribbean sea.
Art craft - Molas
Guna art craft is amazing. The most known example are the Molas, made by the women, that are nowadays the main source of income for the whole family.
