"Panama Rainforest Expedition: Unveiling Embera Culture and Nature amidst the Enchanting Chagres River Wilderness"


  • Stands out through its immersive blend of cultural richness and natural beauty.
  • Genuine interactions and insights into daily lives, traditions and handicrafts.
  • An adventurous touch with a boat ride and jungle hike leading to a waterfall


Embark on a unique adventure as you journey to meet the ancient Embera tribe in the heart of the Panama Rainforest. Your day begins with a Panama Expeditions Hub guide picking you up from your hotel, leading you north to the Corotu pier where the Chagres River meets Alajuela lake. Board small boats that navigate the enchanting Rio Chagres, surrounded by a lush and dense jungle. Upon reaching the riverbank, a short hike awaits, guiding you to a picturesque waterfall nestled in the rainforest. Dive into the refreshing pool beneath the waterfall, immersing yourself in this tropical paradise. Continuing your exploration, visit the Embera Indian village, one of Panama's seven indigenous tribes. Greeted by the Embera people at the pier, gain insights into their way of life, history, traditions, cultures, beliefs, and crafts. The village chief offers a brief explanation, setting the stage for a traditional lunch prepared by Embera women, featuring fish and plantains. Afterward, partake in a traditional Embera dance, shop for unique handicrafts, and support the community directly, contributing to school fees for children. Optionally, adorn yourself with a temporary Embera tattoo. As your day unfolds, your guide ensures a safe return to your hotel, concluding this extraordinary cultural and natural experience.
