Just to let you know and save research time, this is not a hotel. It is a private lodge owned by a Frenchman in the darien province of panama. 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 only be described as unique, staying in a Waanoun indian lodge, followed by a couple of nights at the Filo de Tallo. This is not for the faint hearted, or those looking for luxury - hot water and AC are irrelevant and are nowhere to be found. However, this should not put off anyone wanting real adventure and the chance to be at one with both nature and traveling in relatively undiscovered part of the world. Michel, our host, is a true professional and his passion is the Darein and the life within it. Jungle trails, integrating with the idigineous communities, river trips in dug out canoes are just some of the things to look forward to. And of course being French, a good meal is never far away.
