This tour will show you one of the 7 indigenous Indian cultures of Panama that are still living the same way as when Columbus found them in the 1500's.
An article about the Embera Indians was published in the National Geographic magazine.
After a short canoe ride on the Gatun river, you will learn about their culture, see their ceremonial dances and hand-made crafts, taste their native food: delicious fresh fish with fried platanos (smashed plantain bananas) or yuca served in palm leaves, explore the area's beautiful tropical vegetation with the medicine man showing us all the plants used to cure.
If you want, you can get your body painted as they do, with a natural fruit dye called Tagua...all of this in just one day!
