Well, I finally had an all girl vacation AKA girlcation. We decided to go to San Blas Island with Yacht Latina of course. :)
Two nights, three days of Sun, Beach and Girl time.

But needles to say, we were on the road by 6:30 (tons of traffic coming from the beach delayed our trip by 30 minutes.
I called shotgun - whew! and decided to sleep my car sickness away. Everyone else loved the chatting and being away from husbands, or boyfriends and kids. This was our time and we were set to enjoy.

Our first thing was to explore our lancha guides, Eric, home island: Nalunega. Its a big island with a school and big restaurant bar. There was recycle museum as well. That was fun to explore.
Exploring a Guna Yala island was interesting. We came at the time where a big community meeting was happening in the main hall. Women came in one door and sat on one side of the "hall" hut. The men came in the other door and sat in their respective sides. No kids. After the meeting they would have a festival where big meals (fish soup) would be served to the island community. Of course, we were not allowed to snap pictures but it was interesting none the less.

|Mola bags anyone?|
The next day we moved on to Isla Verde and basically ended up with a sunburn on my back - too much sitting in the water drinking beer and talking about recipes.
We had a nice gal from France - and her husband sporting a very euro swimsuit thong - selling jewelry that she made from coconut and Kuna vegetable "ivory". We also had a family come on board selling us Molas. I must say I was happy with my purchases, as well as the other ladies. So sun, beach, snorkeling, swim, kayaking, drinking and shopping...not bad for us girls.
