They are politically a nation within Panama with their own language, culture, laws and territory. However, they are also Panamanians.
There wasn´t a single road connecting Guna Yala with the rest of Panama (not until 2007). Guna´s efforts to preserve their identity, and their control over San Blas has made it possible to keep this region as the pristine paradise it is today.

During the Dry Season, from January through March, the North winds settles diminishing chances of sand flies and chances of rain. The water is cooler than the other months. Although it is good to snorkel it´s not the best time for it. Occasionally wind and waves might be tough for a less experienced paddler.
During the Rainy Season, from April-May through December there is rain, although it is very unusual to have rain that keeps us from paddling and snorkeling. The water is warmer and with greater visibility for snorkeling. We can expect days with out waves at all. And yes, we might have to trust more in our insect repellent than the wind to take care of sand flies.
