Puerto Obaldia Airport (IATA: PUE, ICAO: MPOA) is an airport serving Puerto Obaldía, a Caribbean coastal town in the Guna Yala comarca (indigenous province) of Panama.

Between 2008 and 2010, the deteriorated NW/SE runway was replaced with a longer, wider concrete runway 17/35.[3][4][5]

The runway runs uphill from the sea. Mountainous terrain immediately south and east requires approach and departure be made over the water.

The La Palma VOR (Ident: PML) is located 45.7 nautical miles (85 km) west-southwest of the airport.[6]
