“Adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2011

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.

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

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2009

We stayed at Filo del Tallo in September and it is as close to heaven as you can get...If you want to remember what is really important in life, this is the place to go. You will feel like being among family, they are so friendly and (something you would not expect) food is actually excellent!! This place is like an oasis in the middle of the jungle and yet they offer so many activities. Last but not least, the views from the lodge are just something you will never forget.

I would definitely go back and recommend the place to anyone who needs to revive.
