Yeah, they bill Darien like this to impress the home audience, but a little old lady like me went there in 2019 to look at Harpy & Crested Eagles, so how dangerous can it be? There's a big dock where you can pick up a boat at the end of the Pan-American Hwy in Javisa. Plenty of people there, it's fine. If you're a USian, there's plenty of places in your own hometown where you don't hike either. I bet there's more drugs smuggled and manufactured in Florida.
