IMPORTANT ABOUT SAN BLAS
• THE ISLANDS: Guna Yala or San Blas Islands is an indigenous autonomous territory that follows its own regulations and jurisdiction.
• TAX: To enter this territory it is required to show the original passport and pay the local tax l (this tax is already included in your reservation with us).
• SOCIETY: San Blas has a matriarchal society governed by THE GUNA CONGRESS who decides all the procedures and laws of this beautiful region.
• ACCOMMODATIONS: are distributed on private islands (belonging to the women of this culture) in villages or on more remote islands. All the accommodations are traditional that do not correspond to Western standards. Cabins are huts managed by the Guna community, and built of natural materials, on the sand or stilts with shared bathroom. No air conditioning, potable water and hot water available on site.
• LAWS: The GUNA CONGRESS regulates the laws as well as the cessation of tourist activity for some members of the community if required.
• PIPA DE PAZ: According to the Guna culture, Pipa de Paz is performed when it is considered that there is a run of bad luck or misfortune in a family, island or sector. The Guna Congress will then authorize the main shaman to generate enough smoke to visualize the evil spirits and thus drive them away, propelling them to the centre of the earth so that they disappear! During this week men and women will not be able to work since everyone must be focused on expelling the spirits. When the Guna Congress notifies that the "Pipa de Paz" begins, there may be a prohibition to enter or leave the territory as well as any tourist activity in the affected sector.
