The red huts over the blue sea are out of a magazine's feature cover story. The huts, rustic but elegant, had everything that you need (except hot water) for a cell phone free vacation where you can only rest on the hammock while listening to the waves, read, talk and watch the starts at night. Although not inexpensive, the friendly staff, good food, amicable guests, and informative visits to the Kuna villages made it worthwhile. Despite the good food, I would recommend bringing with you water and snacks, not included in the package, for a no more than three days visit. Watch out for the no-see-ums: they will bite without mercy.
