Detailed Description

The starting point will be at 9:00 AM in Puerto Corotú where one of the members of the region will be waiting for you to set sail in a canoe across the Chagres River. During the tour, you can admire the beautiful wooded landscape of the National Park and some animals such as birds, sloths and iguanas.

Then, you will travel by canoe to a beautiful waterfall where you can swim and enjoy the crystal-clear water and then you will be transferred to the region. When you arrive in the region, you will be greeted with a live music presentation, played with traditional instruments, and if you are a woman, you will be given a wreath of flowers as a welcome.

Then, the head of the region will go on to explain a bit about the history, traditions and culture of the Emberá, and then, you will see a live dance performance. Lunchtime arrived, you will enjoy a delicious fish dish with patacones and before finalizing, you will have time to get a tattoo with Jagua. A natural ink made to adorn the body.

Finally, you will climb back to the canoe that will take you back to Puerto Corotú where you will have finished this activity.
