This is first of all the perfect place to lower your shoulders, and completely relax in beautiful surroundings.
The lodging is very basic. If luxury is your thing, you should probably go somewhere else, but the charm of having only a thin wooden floor between you and the sea, and the evening breeze through the walls is part of the whole packet. Waves under the roof is the best lullaby in the world :-)
The seafood is absolutely lovely, and even tho you can order other food than the food that is included in the price, we never felt any need to do so. One of the days we even got langustinos (mini lobster) for dinner! Others have complained about there not being enough food, but we never experienced that problem.
Included were also two excursions every day if you wanted to go. One was to one of the many "postcard" islands nearby, and one of a more cultural/educational nature. The explanation on these trips were only in spanish tho, and if you don't speak spanish, you might, like us, have to ask some of the other guests to translate for you.
The area is stunningly beautiful, and it is also good to see that the Kuna indians have kept their culture quite good
We were there for 3 days, but would love to stay a couple of days more if we come back (and I'm quite sure we will sometime in the future)
