On Isla Chico Naranjo, Cabanas Narasgandup is a group of ten basic but well-kept huts at the end of a small bay. The huts have bamboo walls and are simply furnished with beds and a table. Some have a covered terrace out-front. Some have basic private bathroom facilties with flushing toilet (paper goes in the bin not the toilet), cold... More

Like all rooms in San Blas this island has rustic feel. Our room was over the water with wooden floor, private bathroom and shower. The island is very nice. we got our own private beach. the bigger beach is about 100 meter away. The best thing about this place is the family that hosted us. very honest and nice people.... More

It was very confusing booking a place in the San Blas islands - many islands, many operators, many companies.... I'm thankful that serendipity brought us to Cabanas Narasgandup. It is run by islanders, who were excellent and enthusiastic hosts. The islands are as beautiful as the pictures suggest, and the charm of staying in a bamboo hut over/near the water... More

My wife and I enjoyed three nights in paradise and it was not nearly enough time. We settled into one of the two cabins over the water, raised up on stilts. Each night the waves were literally right under our bed, lulling us to sleep. A breeze makes its way through the bamboo walls, taking away some of the heat... More

We stayed for 2 nights in a cabin over the water, with wood floor and private bath, which was $100 a night, including 3 meals, drop off and pick up from boat dock to island, and one excursion per day. The excursion fees were $1 or $2 per person, which is the entrance fees for the other islands. Analio was... More

Hi, We recommend Nubesidub for being good value. I think it is cheaper than the others and supplies the same: amazing tropical heaven, in very basic conditions. The food was pretty good, they even suply bottled water with the food. They are nice, but almost no English knowledge at all. The cabins are basic with sand floor. We were 4... More

Note that this is not rated on luxury accommodation. I have rated this on the overall experience of staying with a tribe on a small island! The island itself is pretty small, but is a beautiful paradise - especially the part where Cabanas Narasgandup is situated. The accomodation is very rustic hut, with a basic toilet and shower hose, but... More

Narasgandup is a great place to rest, disconnect and, snorkel. Prices are reasonable, as you have to keep in mind that there are 3 meals per day included. The family that runs the island is very nice and helpful and take you on a boat trip once a day. We only booked for 2 nights, but enjoyed it so much,... More

We stayed at Narasgandup for 2 nights/3 days in a hut with a sand floor. Everything was up to expectations, great beach; snorkeling is excellent – right there: 20 feet from your hut. Food is good, small portions, but enough to get by for 2 days. Bring snacks with you. It was a little too hot in the hut at... More

Yes, what a place! San Blas obviously has many more places to stay, also on equally beautiful islands, but this one is small scale, which makes your stay a really special experience. There are also more luxurious place further to the east, but these can only be visited by plane. This one is just a 30-45 minute boat trip away... More
