As far as I know, the Darien

As far as I know, the Darien Gap is not really passable in the usual sense.  Maybe a handful of bicyclists have done it, the first being the late Ian Hibell.  You literally, not joking, have to machete your way through it.  I "think" a few have gotten some locals to take them part of the way by canoe but regardless it is not a picnic by anymeans.  Most hop a boat or fly to Columbia/Panama.

I will be very interested in seeing if something has opened up.  Best, John

Darién Gap

The Darién Gap is a no-go area. In addition to John Nettles' comment, have a look at www.overlandtraveller.com/destinations/colombia_panama_travel_darien_gap2.html, and boards.bootsnall.com, among others.
Very useful info.
