12 of us did a Panama Canal and Embera Indian village tour with Mario(all the guides seem to be called Mario) whilst in Colon for a Port day on cruise. He had his son, Dylan aged 6, with him. We went first to the village of Embera Quera. The river was very low but the boat trip was amazing. We saw Toucan, monkeys, sloth and other wildlife. We did a walk around the village garden looking at plants for natural remedies. Looked at the school/classroom and danced with the Embera. We had a delicious lunch of fresh fruit(best we had in 3 weeks) and fish and plantains. Our 4 children thought it was yummy. We bought a few crafts and enjoyed the time in the village. On our way back to the ship, we stopped at Gatun Locks for an hour to watch some ships pass through(as we had the day before) and see it from a different perspective. This was a great tour(voted best tour on our 15 night cruise by our children) and we highly recommend it.
