I did one of the same length three years ago July at this center: http://www.insight-meditation.org/index.html

The master was away and there were no programs. I was shown around the premises, informed of the schedule, and then left alone for three weeks. Not a bad location, close to Colombo. You can hear cars from time to time on a nearby road. Three years ago it wasn't too distracting.
