Know More about this tourYour 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.
