These are very small islands just barely above the water level of the lagoon. The people live in huts along mud 'paved' pathways. The islands are so small that you can't get very lost although you can get confused. This was obviously a tender port because there was no dock for the ship. Bob did no see any reason to go ashore, so he stayed on board.

There are about 378 islands of which 49 are inhabited. The Kuna Indians live there, and the islands are a part of the comarca (district) Guna Yala (also spelled Kuna Yala)

On some of the islands the kids can attend school. Because the sale of molas is about the only source of income, many people from other islands came with their wares to the one island where the tenders were putting us ashore.
