Turtles island

Ultimate guide (August 2019)
Turtles island (Isla Tortuga) is a BBQ island in the archipelago of San Blas, Panama. There are no hotels, so all of the tourists get here on a daily basis. It may happen, that you will be the only guest here. And all of this for $2 a day charged by local Kuna Indians. This is a good price to make a lot of photos in a perfect tropical paradise and to see people of pre-Columbian nation. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]
