Welcome to Comarca de Guna Yala


A decade ago the road to the port of Gardi (Cartí) was finished, making the region more accessible than ever. Still off the beaten track, this narrow, 373km-long strip on the Caribbean coast with 365 offshore islands stretches from the Golfo de San Blas to the Colombian border.

Community (ie populated) islands numbering four dozen are acre-sized cays packed with thatched huts, livestock and people. Visitors often prefer the more remote outer islands with fewer inhabitants. Some islands charge a landing/visitation fee.
