Island Camp

We spent the day visiting some different islands and picked a nice place to pitch a tent on an empty beach. The pictures say it all. Camping in paradise.

After a while, some Kuna’s came by in a canoe and we shouted “langosta!?” They had nice ones and were happy to come make a sale. Fresh lobster on a deserted island.  A few hours later another group paddled by and we did the same thing. We literally bought them out.

We also asked them to climb up and grab some coconuts for us. The Kuna own all the islands collectively and it’s illegal to take a coconut if you are not a Kuna. We hear it’s a $500 USD fine.

    These pics are amazing. And the langostas look tasty. How does one become a Kuna?

    Hey, did you guys just rent some boats and drove out to a random island? Did you have to reserve it? I’m thinking of taking a school group down and would love to do that. Thanks.
