Nadi Hostal is located on a little island in the friendly Wichub Wala Community. The island is 30 minutes away from Carti by local launcha and 5 minutes from the main San Blas airport, El Porvenir.  Hotel Nadi offers the traveller a comfortable and pleasant stay in the idyllic San Blas islands.

Accommodations are basic but comfortable with private or shared bamboo cabanas available. There are three private rooms available with private bathrooms and 2 family rooms available with a maximum occupancy of six people per room.

The hostal is run by a Kuna family who are on hand to help make your stay more enjoyable. They also cook up three great traditional Kuna meals.

How To Get There

The road to San Blas through the densely forested jungle highlands of Panama can only be negotiated by licensed 4×4 transporters. The Kuna Yala will not allow any other vehicles to enter carrying foreigners, thus the only way to to get to Hostal Nadi is with the 4×4 vehicles that leave Panama City daily between 5am and 6am. The drive is approx 2.5hrs, depending on road and weather conditions. The 4×4 transporters can hold up to 7 passengers, it can be a squeeze at times and we advise all clients only to take a small bag containing what they need for their stay in the San Blas.

Currently El Porvenir Airport is closed for renovations and all the other airports are much further south in the island chain and cannot be used to get Hostal Nadi.
