Two nights is the perfect length of stay at this place.
There is virtually nothing to do. And this is the beauty of it.
I was picked up by the staff and taken to the island which contains only three huts.
I swam and read and did little else.
One morning we had a trip to one of the Kuna islands to look at their town. I was afraid that it would be the usual parade for the tourists, but it felt like a genuine experience and the kids were so adorable...
Food is, of course, basic. Even the water for the bathrooms has to be brought to the island on a little boat. Expect everything to be basic. That is the beauty of it.
Staff are genuinely some of the nicest people I met on my travels in Panama.
Be warned that it's so remote, that you will be unlikely to have a signal on your phone...
