History, culture, tradition and more

This trip is all about culture and history, and the Embera community is one of the most ancient but representative entities of our beautiful country. Living next to rivers and lakes, they are a community that practice some fishing activities, and all this development takes place in the surroundings of the Panama Canal. A few years ago, they opened the doors of their culture to us, and so now tourism is also part of their way of living. Tropical rain forest, foliage and fauna makes this the perfect scenario for a very memorable intercultural exchange.
