Our best experience in Panama. It was absolutely amazing! Highly highly recommend.

This was a tremendous experience. I was wary because it could have been a cheesy show and tell that denigrated the Embera tribe. But it was actually a well balanced and meaningful experience. It was incredibly muddy due to a late rainy season, but the Embera people were welcoming, friendly and eager to share their culture with us in an honest and non-touristy way. To be clear, there is the opportunity to buy crafts, but most of the time was taken with a long and informative introduction by a member, touring the small village with excellent commentary by a village elder, witnessing and participating in some native dance, eating lunch and asking lots of questions. We wished we had done the overnight version of the trip in the dry season.

Waste of money and time.
