Fodor's Review

Not only does Yandup offer the nicest accommodations in Guna Yala, it is also the best deal in the province. The octagonal bungalows, perched over the sea, have high thatch roofs, private baths, solar lighting, and porches with hammocks and views of the mainland across the bay. Two smaller bungalows have ocean views and cost $30 less. The open-air restaurant, also over the water, serves the best food in Guna Yala. The island is lovely and grassy with a small beach on one end and hammocks strung between the nearby coconut palms. Yandup's guides speak a little English and are attentive. They offer an array of excursions and good snorkeling equipment. The lodge also sponsors projects for the community that guests can donate to.
