The San Blas form an island archipelago that has remained relatively unspoiled for generations. The native Indians have been given power to administer the islands to suit their culture and the Panamanian government do not get involved. Achutupo is where many travellers will arrive due to their being a rough landing strip located on the small island and it is an ideal place to begin your adventure in these wonderful islands. There is no accommodation located on Achutupo as it is reserved for indigenous peoples and it is generally visited on the day that you arrive but there are some fascinating sights.
The island is home to the largest population of the archipelago and is the location of the local community hut where much of the culture revolves around. There is also a basketball court that is the pride of the island and is often filled with locals. The main draw of this island is the untouched beauty and the unique culture that you can experience in tranquil settings. There are also a great number of fun things to do in the water surrounding the island as it is popular for snorkelling and diving.
