Confusion in the San Blas Islands

There appears to have been some confusion of late, amongst cruising sailors regarding a resolution recently passed by the Kuna Indians, restricting the movements of yachts in the San Blas area.

See the Resolution in Spanish (para 08/06/08, on page 6) here

However, visiting cruising yachtsmen are not to worry, as the resolution only applies to charter yachts. From the wording it would appear to apply only to local charter operations.

To date the normal charges for visiting yachtsmen only apply.
