Know More about this tour

Your day will start with an 8:00 am pickup at your hotel, were you will be escorted to air-conditioned vehicle, where a knowledgeable guide will be awaiting to provide you with an overview of Panama on the your way to the jungles of the Central Region.

Your host will prepare you for the cultural feast you are about to experience by sharing the history and customs of the Ember Indians. These are the keepers of the Rainforest and Chagres River. When you arrive at the Chagres National Park, you will leave the comfort of your vehicle to board the dugout canoes that will take you to the Ember Village. Although not the most luxurious, these dug outs are sturdy and worthy craft which were critical in the conquering of the jungle and in establishing supply lifelines for both Indians and Spanish. After motoring up river, you will see the village emerge from the jungle as if by magic. Keep your eyes open along the way, as the region offers abundant wildlife that is particularly active along the rivers edge.

In the Village, the Chief will welcome you with traditional Ember hospitality. A series of dances have been arranged to add to this cultural exchange. Feel free to wonder the village, ask questions or interact with these quiet people. Please remember that we are guests in their home and a good measure of common sense and sensitivity towards their privacy is appreciated.

  • It was a wonderful tour! Our guide was awesome! The people at the village were very hospitible and friendly!
    Enjoyed it very much! Highly recommend it!

  • had a private day in the village - excellent lunch cooked by one of the women - great boat ride to/from the village

  • I had the luck I had the best guide Guillermo to share this bful experience. During to trip to the National Park, Guillermo kindly took the time to explain me not only about the Embera but also about many other things. Without Guillermo my experience would not have been the same as he knows the field, the Embera and has such a wide knowledge on everything. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone looking for an exceptional tour. I had such an unforgettable experience and a lot of pictures/videos to remind me of this amazing day. Everyone I met during my travel in Panama regretted not having time left to do this trip. I would schedule this in your itinary, book it and ask for Guillermo as he will do all he can to make this a wonderful day for you. It is definitely worth it!
