Everything was broken... THE GOOD, BAD & UGLY : 1. THE BOAT RIDE : Think you'll be gambling your life in a small boat with a mini-motor with a careless Kunas Captain at full motor towards the big waves, your rear suffering all the way, the ride is bumpy and you get all wet; we barely survive. My girlfriend and her mom, both feared for their lives. 2. FOOD : Sad, Tasteless and 0 creativity. 3. ACCOMMODATION : Beyond basic... Cabin, sand floor; everything in the cabin was broken, and; the bed / sheets, I think Christopher Columbus used in his first visit to the Americas, I mean the thing was old, dirty and is extreme conditions. 4. BEACH : Beautiful, Natural and with tons of fish diversity; raw beach with trash everywhere. TAKEAWAY : Be careful who you bring to

I spent a week in the San Blas and stayed on 3 different islands. What I liked about Ina's was that the island was slightly bigger and had more character. There are kuna families living on this island so we saw how they lived. I found this island the most social compared to franklins and Chichime. If you are a lone traveller I'd recommend this one. The Kuna's that run Ina's are really friendly and funny. They take you on a free trip to Pelicano Island each day if you want and it is the most beautiful island I visited! There is a shop at Robinsons (the camp next door to Ina's) which you could use with cold water, beers fruit etc). The bad things we experienced about this island was the toilets - there was only one working toilet for about 20 people and it wasn't cleaned that

No possibility to buy anything useful except beer. A lot of garbage which no one cleans up. No activities. Long waiting time to get accommodation. Much better on Isla Franklin. When we got there the place was overbooked.

After staying at Ina's I am having a hard time understanding which this place has so many good reviews. This place is a disaster. The huts do not close or lock. We can actually see through the bamboo so forget privacy. The cabin we stayed in smelled so strong of mould it was hard to breathe. On top of that, we arrived the room to used up bed sheets and pillow cases (the bed was covered in sand). We asked them to give us new bed sheets, which arrived at night fall. We could not sleep all night as there is no ventilation in the room and we woke up multiple time in sweat. Some other habitant of Inas chose to sleep directly on the sand, while other who were promised dorm beds got shortchanged into sleeping outdoor in hammocks (eight people ended up being moved to a deserted island

The bottom line is that it's an amazing island and can't recommend enough that it's worth going. CAN'T RECOMMEND ENOUGH! Ina's accommodations are not anything fancy - so if you're expecting some kind of commercial hotel, you're in the wrong place - but for what it is, it's great. Meaning you sleep in huts that have a bed w/sheets and a mosquito net but really not much else, the floors are made of sand. Food is good and better than at franklin's (which is literally 30 feet away) but breakfast is very small (2 small pieces of sweet bread/pancakes and a egg or 2 slices of cheese), lunch is more sizeable (usually a large portion of rice, lentils and then a piece of fish or chicken) and dinner is usually a veggie (potatoes or something that resembles cole slaw without much mayo),
