In the morning, pick up in your hotel and road to the Lake Gatún where natural life (endemic flora and fauna) run at its edges. Prepare yourself for a cultural encounter with the indigenous community “Embera”.
Upon arrival, you will embark on a 20 min canoe ride towards the community.
These communities still live completely in a traditional way, developing natural fibre baskets, colourful clothes, paintings and timeless dances. The Embera people will welcome you with traditional music.
One of the village chiefs will present their lifestyle and traditions:
Introduction to traditional Embera crafting (basketry, wood carving and jewellery making).
Nature Walk and explanation of Embera medicine and in particular the benefits of certain plants.
Representation of their traditional dances.
Typical lunch based on fish and plantains is included. As a dessert fresh exotic fruits will be beautifully served. Bottled water included. Lunch, dinner and breakfast in the community.
This day tour is based on the cultural exchanges, simplicity and humility.
