After reading the reviews of Anbabnega it sounded like paradise. Far from it.
After the three hour drive from Panama City we arrived at the pier built on a beach
covered with garbage. We arrived at the lodge for our breakfast of velveeta cheese

Anbabnega Lodge is a beautiful 10-room eco-friendly hotel nestled on an island inhabited by Kuna Indians, living as they have for hundreds of years. The structure was built by the Kuna people using traditional materials, but has the conveniences of running water (showers/toilets) and solar powered lighting. Three delicious meals and daily trips to see other beautiful islands are included in our prices. We have staff that speaks English, Spanish, French, and Kuna. Anbabnega Lodge is not a five star resort! We provide basic comforts and the opportunity to explore the beautiful islands of Kuna Yala while also experiencing Kuna life and culture.
