  • We will come to pick you up at your hotel around 8:00 AM and drive for about an hour to a boat ramp on the shore of Lake Alajuela, part of the Panama Canal watershed, where the Emberá meet us with their dugout canoe. Then we head across the lake  and then upriver for about 45 minutes or so (depending on the level of the river).  Along the way you have the option to stop by a beautiful waterfall (based on natural conditions and accessibility) where you can take a refreshing dip in the cool water. Upon arrival in the village you receive a traditional greeting of music and all the villagers welcoming you to their community.  After about 10 minutes to wander around and explore the village on your own, you are given a short presentation about the Emberá culture and traditions and their crafts.  After lunch you can take an optional short hike in the jungle with one of the village elders to learn about medicinal plants. You are given more free time to wander around, purchase any of their exquisite crafts or receive a temporary tattoo or have a conversation with the Emberá people. Finally the villagers perform some of their traditional shamanic and celebratory dances and music before we climb back in the dugout and head back down river and return to Panama City. This is a group tour, there may be others joining you for this unforgettable experience with the Emberá.
