Fantastically organised. If you want a sheltered part of the boat, get there early as there are only 2 rows under shade.We were shown interesting parts of the canal e.g the dredging as well as sailing alongside one of the big ships. The tour guide kept his eye out for any wildlife and sided up so we could get a good view. He slowed down at all relevant points for photo opportunities.
Very respectful of the embera wounaan village, he slowed the boat down to mainain the peace and tranquility of the village.
The tribe visit was exceptionally well organised. One of the tribe leaders explained about their culture nd answered any questions. He was very patient and let us translate everything to our 2 children. He even spoke a little english and we joked that he probably got changed back in to civilian clothes at the end of the day and went back to his penthouse in Punta Pacifica!!!! In all honesty though, we were treated very well. We were given a tour of the jungle (remember to take strong insect repellant). We were then treated to a display of their various tribal dances. We were given the opportunity to look at all the various artefacts and purchase those for sale. Remember to take cash with you for this (with plenty of $1 bills just in case they don't have change). It was an amazing trip and we felt very priviledged to be invited to their peaceful and tranquil village.....makes you question whether we have got things right in the modern world!!!
