the wind is great. It's gusty at times but very depenable.
rainy season is November - great dependable wind all year long.
warm days cool nights.
best spot is down by the dam. You can see the wind squeeze through the tight mountain walls because the wind often carries moisture - it's beautiful.
It is certifiable cloud forest just to the west of the launch on the other side of the dam.
Indiginous village in nearby mountains. El Darien is the only town, supprisingly good nightlife on weekends only.
