All in all, it’s not a bad place to stick around. There are so many different spots to see within an hour’s sail, and every new island is a surprise. Our latest favorite anchorage is in the Central Holandes right above Miriadiadup. To the north of us is a vast shallow lagoon protected by reef and to the south lies the prettiest island I’ve seen yet in the San Blas, covered in palm trees and ringed by a sandy path with perfect ocean views. Three Kuna families live on it, keeping it well maintained, and they sell some pretty darn nice molas, if you’re into that sort of thing.
The massive surrounding reef system provides fantastic snorkeling and spearfishing, and there are a ton of other islands nearby to take a walk on. And, no, I’m not on the Kuna Yala tourism board. But I should be!
