Both authentic tours take you to their actual villages where the Indians will teach you about their way of life, customs and beliefs, perform ceremonial dances and share their food. This will be one of your most unforgettable travel experiences. More than a tour, this is a journey into the lives of two diverse and complex Indigenous cultures that dwell in Panama’s remote areas where they have been able to maintain their traditions and lifestyle as it was before the Spaniards colonized the region.
Your host will prepare you for the cultural feast you are about to experience by sharing the history and customs of both Indigenous groups; Embera Indians who are known as The Keepers of the Rainforest and San Blas Kuna Indians who are known for their Molas - Artwork which are among the most sought after.
In each Village, the Chief will welcome you with hospitality traditional and unique to each group. A series of dances have been arranged to add to this cultural exchange. Feel free to wonder the village, ask questions or interact with these quiet people. Please remember that we are guests in their home and a good measure of common sense and sensitivity towards their privacy is appreciated.
The men and woman are spectacular craftsmen have produced some beautiful items, which will be available for purchase as souvenirs or keepsakes of this unique experience.
All too soon, it is time to return to your century, where the bliss and tranquility of older days has been all but forgotten.
