Eastern Panama Travel Guide

La Palma, the capital of the Darién, is a perfect illustration of just how undeveloped this province is. At the end of a peninsula where the Tuira River flows into the Golfo de San Miguel, La Palma has just one commercial street with a handful of government offices, basic restaurants, and rustic hotels. It has one of the Darién's few airstrips, but commercial flights were suspended in 2012, so
