Fodor's Review

With a small beach and hammocks strung between palm trees, this remote island is an idyllic spot. Accommodations are among Guna Yala's most rustic: tiny huts with sand floors, shared bathrooms, and kerosene lamps for light. It's a good spot for snorkelers because its encircled by a relatively healthy coral reef, however the owner doesn't buy equipment as often as he should, so you may want to bring your own. The huts are quite close to one another, and everyone shares a couple basic bathrooms and showers in a cement building, so there isn't much privacy. The payoff is the amazing scenery, the nearby reef, and trips to Isla Perro and Guna communities. They charge $25 to pick up and drop off guests in Carti or El Porvenir.
