Western and Central Darién
The western Darién is fairly accessible by road from Panama City . The Lago Bayano area is particularly easy to get to, and it’s now also possible to drive north across the western Darién all the way to Kuna Yala .
Most people heading farther east than that prefer to fly.
However, travelers with more time than money can get to La Palma , El Real , and parts of Parque Nacional Darién by road and boat .
