Corazón de Jesús & Narganá
The densely populated islands of Corazón de Jesús and Narganá, which are linked by an arcing wooden footbridge, are of little interest to travelers, especially since they’re the most westernized Guna communities in the Comarca. Here Guna families inhabit concrete cinderblock houses, wear Western clothing and hold all-island baseball tournaments.
Cayos Los Grullos, Holandeses and Ordupuquip (The Cays)
The undisputed gems of the Archipiélago de San Blás are the Cayos Los Grullos, Holandeses and Ordupuquip, a triangle of three virtually uninhabited island chains that are separated by calm blue-green waters and surrounded by shallow reefs. At the lower western corner of the triangle are the Cayos Los Grullos, a mere 10km northwest of Río Sidra.
Just a short boat ride from Corazón de Jesús and Narganá, Isla Tigre ranks among the most traditional islands in the Comarca – though the whole island is lit up with solar energy. With wide walkways separating homes, the island is tidy and uncrowded, which makes it easy to interact with local Guna. However, an island guide must accompany visitors.
