We will pick you up at your hotel and take you to the starting point on the Chagres River at Lago Alajuela, and from there you will ride in a traditional cayuco (dug-out canoe), to the Embera Indian village. At the village we will be welcomed by the villagers who will give you an introduction to the culture, religion, art, language, food, and lifestyle of their people. You will be served a traditional lunch of Tilapia fish and fried plantains. Other presentations include a trail walk through the jungle, a musical dance and performance, and the chance to swim in a crystal clear river at a majestic waterfall.
