Most of the accommodations in San Blas are lodges. A lodge is a small house build from natural materials like bamboo and palm leaves. They can be found all over the San Blas Islands. A few to mention are the Anbabnega Lodge, Coral Lodge, Yandup Island Lodge, Kuna Niskua Lodge and the Akwadup Lodge. If you’re searching for peace and natural beauty itself you should go to the Hotel Dad Ibe Lodge which will give you peace and calmness together with traditional Kuna appearances.

If you don’t want so sleep in a bed you always got the hammocks on the terrace of your lodge. For food you just visit the small restaurant on the island where the Kuna prepare the fish of the day and serve you breakfast, lunch and diner. Lobster can be ordered on your request.
