    Stop At: Emberá-Wounaan Comarca, Panama

    Several families from Embera settled near the Chagres river several years ago and developed an ecotourism project allowing them to maintain their way of life and their customs in the face of the development of the modern world.
    The indigenous Embera are one of the seven Native American ethnic groups still present in Panama.

    We will visit the indigenous community of Embera Puru, which is located on the Chagres River.

    At the port, you will start with a 30-minute boat ride along the river, by canoe.

    You will stop at the foot of a magnificent waterfall where you can swim.

    Once you arrive in the community, you are greeted by women and children who arrive dressed in their traditional outfits with brightly patterned skirts, ancestral music and dances.

    They will explain to you in detail their culture, their gastronomy and their particular language.

    This tour includes a traditional meal and "Jagua" body painting.

    At the end of the trip, you can purchase their crafts, which includes small animal figurines made of tagua. The Embera men make detailed carvings from cocobolo wood and the women weave beautiful baskets from palm fibers.

    During the trip you will enjoy the beautiful flora and fauna of the area and learn a little more about the way of life of the community.
