Upfront apologies for poor spelling--just returned from a great trip to Panama and wanted to write this review right away. Akwadup is accesable only by boat from the closest airstrip served by Panama Airways. It is about an hour by air from Panama City. The Lodge, about 15 minutes by boat from the airstip, is owned and operated by a...

This was our second trip to San Blas (Kuna Yala) and our first time in the Achutupu area. Firstly, intentionally or not, the Web page of the San Blas Lodge is very misleading: the first picture you see at the top of their web page shows this idyllic setting with green cabins perched above the water. However, this is not...

A diverse group of us from Chile, Ecuador, Argentina, USA and Panama booked the whole resort/island and had a fantastic 4 day visit. the owners and their team are proud and highly competent Kuna and the food, tours, hospitality, and friendliness are second to none in Kuna Yala.

We bought a package from a travel agent which included flights to/from San Blas, accommodation, all meals and guided tours. We discovered on arrival that we were the very first guests to stay and, in fact, we had the hotel (and entire tiny island it sits on) to ourselves for our two-day stay. The hotel consists of wooden thatched cabins...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you want the ocean breeze in a welcoming place, far away from your city and life’s stress, let me help,I would like to tell you about a special place in central America, off the Caribbean coast of Panama.we belong to the Kuna indigenous people and are the owners of two palm fringed eco-tourist lodges on islands in Kuna Yala, meaning Kuna territory (also known as the san Blas Islands). The names of these highly regarded resorts are UAGUINEGA (winner of an International Business award) and AKWADUP, they are on small coral reefs close to the island of Achutupu which has one of the most traditional Kuna cultures, little changed over the centuries. Our guided tours will take you to watch the native women making their world renowned molas; at your selection you may wish to take a trip up river into the rainforest. Enjoy the snorkelling, swimming, or just relax in a palm shaded hammock. At night under the moon and shining stars.We are waiting to greet you. The Kuna dance, culture, stories and enjoyable,unique experience are sure to stay in your memory. ... more   less
