Detailed Description

The adventure begins when picked up from your hotel in Panama City at 8:00 AM. You will find your friendly guide and then you will board the van that will transport you for an hour along the canal and the Soberanía National Park, while your guide will share interesting information about Panama and give you some information about your visit to the town of Emberá.

You will arrive at the shores of Lake Alajuela where you will find a member of the Emberá region with a handmade canoe. You will embark on a boat trip of 30 to 60 minutes. Then, you will pass through the virgin forest and see many birds, such as herons, ospreys, possibly toucans and wild parrots, as well as turtles, maybe an alligator and, if you are lucky, you will see a sloth, otter or monkeys.

If the water level is high enough, you can stop at a local waterfall to take a dip on the way to the village. Next, you will arrive at the village and you will be greeted with a traditional music greeting and, sitting in a typical community cabin, you will receive a fascinating presentation of the Emberá about its history, culture and how they live.

After the presentation, you will be served a delicious lunch of fresh fish, fried plantains and local fruits. Then, you will have the option of a 20 to 30-minute walk with one of the elders of the village to learn about their medicinal plants.

Then, you will have some free time in the town to see or buy any of its exquisite baskets, dishes or masks made by hand with palm leaf fibres or cocobolo (rosewood) or tagua wood.

The tour will end with an exhibition of shamanic music and celebration and dances from the villagers. After the dance, it's time to say goodbye to your new Emberá friends who will remain in your heart forever.

You will be back at your hotel in Panama City between 4:00 PM and 5:00 PM
