My wife and I just spent our anniversary here and it was a great experience. Nice sized very clean cabins with most of the amenities. It was lacking a stove top but I made a pan out of foil and cooked our breakfast on the outdoor grill. All of the staff were very helpful with their suggestions and always friendly.... More

We had the pleasure of working with Far Flung on our honeymoon. This company is a huge part of what made our adventure so perfect. The desk staff are knowledgeable, honest, and fun to chat with. We did our honeymoon during spring break, peak season for the. They made an exception for us and let us rent a canoe instead... More

Had a great trip with our guides JD and Laura. They have a lot of knowledge and kept the trip interesting. Some of the roads we wanted to go on in the park were closed due to recent rain. Yes it does sometimes rain there! To make up for the closure our guides extended our trip and took us to... More

First let me say that if you are looking for an adventure in the Big Bend, Far Flung has you covered. We floated Colorado Canyon in October with a party of twelve, and we recently canoed Hot Springs Canyon. We also rented a Jeep from Far Flung and stayed in their casitas. On both float trips, our guides were great!... More

What a great 1/2 day canoe trip. Staff was wonderful! My 10 year old had a blast! The river was low but the staff made it a great treat. Many thanks!

I called Far Flung the week before Spring Break to book a trip during the week of Thanksgiving and to book a room at the Far Flung Casitas the day after our trip. ( I know this is way far in advance but my husband and I have the type of schedules that we have to book far ahead. )... More

We spent two nights April 9th and 10th 2014 at Far Flung and loved evey minute. The casita was immaculate and perfectly appointed. We loved our little porch and rockers. There is a common area gas lit firepit with adirondack chairs where we enjoyed a glass of wine and visiting with other guests under a starlit sky each evening. This... More

Everything about this experience was wonderful. There were 8 of us. At 10 you get a discount. Far Flung put 2 other people with our group after asking us. That way we could get the discounted price. When we checked in I was dying for a cup of coffee. There was no coffee shop. The person from Far Flung gave... More

We stayed in Las Casitas for 3 nights and went on a guided walking tour (Apache Trail). The tour was excellent. The guide was very knowledgeable and showed us all the Apache art. It was a very enjoyable 2 hours. For Las Casitas, although not as remote as I had imagined (the view from our back porch was mostly of... More
