Embera Indian Village, Panama

This tour goes up into the hills outside Panama City to the Chagres river where you transfer with your guide on to an open-top Embera motorised canoe. You zip along the clear river waters by boat through beautiful scenery to visit the small indigenous community of Embera Indians in the Chagres National Park.

The birdlife is prolific along the river and water levels permitting you will stop for a dip in a waterfall en-route. On arrival at the village you gather with other visitors and together you learn about the Embera culture, their knowledge of botanical plants, meet their artisans and experience their traditional dances, music and food with a tasty lunch. They are very welcoming and keen to chat to you and show you their village.
