El Camino

El Camino


This is the true Darien experience, one for those who know that the journey is not all about the destination.

The hike is an adventure like no other. The journey begins with a boat journey across the Golf of San Miguel to the Afro-antillean town of Garachine. From there you will continue on to the Embera community of Cerro Naipe. The next day begins a 1-2 day hike through the old growth forest of the Darien National Park before arriving to the hidden paradise of Playa Muerto.

This is the ultimate adventure where you can experience both the mystery of the Darien jungle and the magic of its indigenous communities.
