Description: Locomotion in the San Blas Islands of Panama has changed little for the Guna Yala people. Natives of the North Coast who evaded Spanish conquest, many still use cayucos to navigate the over 300 islands, while others have chosen to use outboard motors.

I’m excited to be heading back to Central America and you can join me for one of two trips in November and December 0f 2017 in Costa Rica and Panama. One trip is from Costa Rica to Panama, including a transit of the Panama Canal and a number of National Parks and islands, while the other is the same itinerary in reverse. I’d love to see you on either trip and you can save $200/cabin by using code CH2U117 when booking either of those Costa Rica/Panama itineraries.

If you want something a little cooler, head to Alaska in August for another photography cruise with UnCruise Adventures! If you would like to join me on this cruise and learn photography in some of the most spellbinding scenery Alaska has to offer, click this link for more info and scroll down to the Photography section.
