My husband and I were visiting our daughter who is in the Peace Corps, serving in the Darien of Panama. She assured us we would never find a decent place to stay near her site. We went through out travel agent and were thrilled that she had contact with an adventure group in Panama who set us up at the Filo del Tallo Lodge. It was a wonderful experience and Michel was a great host who gave us a lot of information about the area, the people, and the culture. We did not get to experience all that his usual guests experience because our main goal was to visit our daughter although we did take a dug out canoe down the river to the Wouhnaan village and spent a day out on the river seeing dolphin and local sights. I am only giving this a 4 star rating because we have actually experienced the very highest level of lodging in Adventure safari travel in Africa and this did not quite hit that level, but is probably the best you are going to get in Panama, and especially in the Darien. In addition, Michel has a true heart for the area and the people. I also know we were there during the low season, and the lodge was not functioning at full capacity. I would certainly recommend it to anyone who wants a ecofriendly but gracious and comfortable exerience in the heart of the Darien.

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

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.
