Yandup Lodge

Owned and operated by a Guna family, Yandup Lodge is located in the center of the Guna Yala reserve on a private island at an approximately 50 minute flight distance from Panama City and then about 15 minutes via boat from the airstrip Playon Chico to the island. The accommodation is basic and comfortable in traditional Guna-style huts with two or three beds, ceiling fan, private bathrooms and a hammock on the front porch. The lodge has 10 cabins and the sea-breeze provides a good source of room ventilation. Meals including freshly caught seafood are served in the open-air dining room overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Electricity from solar panels is available 24 hours at 110V and small generators provide even larger electricity voltage. Yandup is a paradise island surrounded by coral reefs, with a little beach offering calm and crystal clear water and miles of sand within walking distance.
