As noted in another review, you can't book this place online or on Trip Advisor, you must contact the hosts via email and book a package with them. Then for payments you need to plan to wire money to them for a deposit and then either wire final payment or bring cash. We booked four days and loved it. Michel... More

We had an amazing trip to the Darien for 4 days and stayed at Filo del Tallo. It was a wonderful place to stay as well as beautiful. The huts were rustic while being luxurious at the same time-just ideal! The combination of excellent meals and hospitality by Michel and his staff made it all the more memorable. We got... More

Each meal was delicately prepared and served and a gastronomical delight. The tours and guides he coordinated where fantastic and activities varied between indigenous tribal villages, net fishing, river exploration... More

We've enjoyed our total stay in Panamá, but the stay in the Filo del Tallo Lodge and the many things we've experienced in the rain forest made our vacation unforgettable. Everything was perfectly arranged by our host, Michel. We felt like family and were treated not as ordinary guests, but as VIP's. Excellent breakfasts and dinners were served at the... More

The only way you can stay here is by booking on one of his tours through Panama Exotic Adventures. We have just done a four day trip with him that can... More

Great place to be one with Nature. Very relaxing in the hammocks from the rooms, overseeing the beautiful view. I would return anytime
