Description

There are five regions in Panama playing active roles in the development of the country. They all have established territories and are governed by themselves according to their traditions and customs. They all maintain and value their dress, language, and philosophy on life. This luxury tour brings you up close and personal with the friendly natives of an Embera tribe. Learn about their customs, cultures, and traditions as you hear their music, dance with them, and enjoy their traditional dishes.

Duration

Full day: 8:30 am – 4:30 pm.

Itinerary

Around 8:30 am you will be picked up from your hotel by a luxury Mercedes Benz minibus that will take you to Gatun River in Colon Province. Two men from the tribe using traditional clothing, loincloths, temporary tattoos, and ornaments crossing their chests, will led you to an authentic Indian canoe. Depending on the level of the river, the canoe ride will be approximately 30 minutes. Consider bringing an extra pair of shoes, as they will get wet approaching the canoe.

You will receive a warm welcome with music from the friendly village people. Then the chief will discuss their history and traditions, explaining how men and women work crafts in the village, how they gather the materials and the process behind making baskets, masks, wooden figures, and more. Enjoy a traditional lunch made by the community, consisting of fresh cooked fish flavoured with an Embera recipe, patacones made of banana, and fresh fruit.
