Overview

We invite you to step back in time with us on a tour to visit the Embera tribe who still live in traditional villages deep in the rainforest of Panama. The Embera people are proud to share their culture and traditions with visitors. Spending time on a day or overnight tour with the friendly Embera people will touch your heart and is an experience you will never forget. Our founder, Anne Gordon de Barrigon, is married to an Embera man and began these tours to share the beauty of her Embera family and friends with others. Note: this page is for the tours offered by Anne Gordon de Barrigon's tour company, Embera Village Tours and not for other tour operators who also offer tours to visit other Embera villages throughout Panama.

This was our favorite part of our trip to Panama. It's located about an hour outside Panama City, so not that far. We arrived and boarded a dug out canoe that took us to the isolated village. From the moment we got on the boat,...More

Visiting the villagers of Embera was such a great experience. Seeing their traditional dances, dancing and playing with the young children. Even getting a (temporary) tattoo from one of the tribesmen. Such a cool experience overall. Bring some money to shop and support their community.
