The best choice to rest with the familiy. This Caribbean wonder is located a few meters away from Carti port.
A small island but enormously beautiful. In Guna (the native language of Guna Yala, Panama) it is known as Icodub e, just like in a postcard, it is an island surrounded by palm trees that color a landscape starring the white sand of its extensive beach, ideal to rest. The paradisiacal waters of Isla Aguja (needle Island) are really crystal clear, so you can enjoy the swimming, snorkeling and refreshing dips. An idyllic beach where the swings that have been built on the seashore never go unnoticed.
The island is within walking distance of Puerto Cartí (about 15 min approximately), so it is the least boat trip requires: ideal if you want to avoid long sea journeys. Isla Aguja landscape is decorated by traditional huts of the island, for convenience, have a small fan and mosquito net (although don’t forget to apply yourself mosquito repellent topical daily!).
In San Blas Panama there are no more souvenirs than your own experiences and photographs, so the "I was in San Blas" sign that is on Isla Aguja will be a must stop to have your memory of the experience. Photo secured! As in all the islands that you can visit with Enjoy San Blas, Isla Aguja has a bar-restaurant in which you will enjoy the typical San Blas meals, which include fried fish, squid, chicken and rice with coconut, accompanied by patacones, salad and beans. Everything very tasty!
