Embera Village Day Tour in Chagres National Park


  • Visit the indigenous Embera people and immerse yourself in their beautiful culture
  • Enjoy a typical lunch and beverage of the Embera people


The Embera indigenous people originated from the remote rainforest of Darien’s Jungle and migrated to the Chagres River bank which is situated about half an hour from Panama City. The Chagres River is one of the main water sources in Panama and feeds the Panama Canal. Due to it’s importance, the Chagres National Park was founded in 1984 to protect its water resources.

On this tour you will visit the Parara Puru village within the Embera’ reserve, which was established in the Chagres National Park. You will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in their customs and learn about their beliefs by mixing in with the locals and listening to their stories deep in the scenic Chagres National Park.


6 – 7 hours


This tour will start at 8am with a pick up from Panama City. You will arrive at the village around 9:30am and after a quick historic briefing the group will head towards the village in a motorized dugout canoe in which we will then navigate towards Parara Puru.

At the village you will then encounter the chief and be welcomed by the Embera people. The tribe will then demonstrate traditional celebrations and dances while inviting the guests to join them. Experience and try for yourself their traditional dances and celebrations.

You will then have a bit of free time to talk with the Embera people about their history, culture, and customs.

Later in the afternoon you will be led along a narrow trail where an Embera guide will take you along the scenic route and identify various flora and fauna that are used daily due to its medicinal properties or usefulness in creating handicrafts.
