Stop At: Emberá Purú Village, Panama

As it is customary for the indigenous people to organize the best ceremonies for their guests and are very welcoming. They wear their traditional outfits for the events, some covered their bodies with traditional tattoos, perform their best dances and music for the occasion and delight your palate with their fine traditional cuisine. A very detailed speech is given about their origin, dialect, culture, tradition and lifestyle, this is a great opportunity to interact with the villagers. You may visit their community school, museum and kitchen. Take pictures with the kids, youth and the elders, also you may want to have a non-permanent, traditional tattoo. Witness the embera traditional dance and Rumba mostly performed by women and the traditional musical instruments are played by men. Depending on the season, it is very likely to go to the beautiful waterfall to renovate and connect your spirit with nature, that involves a walk-through the jungle of 5 – 15 minutes (based on natural condition and accessibility).

It takes a 45 minutes’ drive from the city to the Lake and from there 10-20 minutes on canoes to the Village and an additional 15-20 minutes on canoes to near the waterfall (based on natural condition and accessibility).
