Planning to visit AC in February and have been with Daniel on 2 tours, would like to spend some time on mainland. Can anyone tell us where the prison is that is the subject of the movie Papillon? Is it in Honduras? Can we get there from AC? Thank you in advance for your help.

The movie and book from from which it was taken are set in French Guyana, South America. Not sure where it was actually filmed.

Supposively, scuttlebutt has it that Papillion lived and died in Belize. Tale has it that he drank alot, woke up one morning and walked out on his verandah or steps (that someone was fixing), fell and broke his neck.

Never had it confirmed as true, but have heard it told by a few I might tend to believe, just because it's so good.
