Panama is best known for its famous canal. But this country is also worth the detour for its paradisiacal islands, for its white sandy beaches, for the centre of the country where tourism is barely developing. One can also go to meet indigenous tribes such as the Kunas in the San Blas Islands or the Emberas in the Darien province. Far from everything, on a small piece of island with high palm trees, to play and live Robinson Crusoe style.
