This is a really nice tour. It did not feel rushed or money-grabbing, rather relaxed and generous with the extras.

We had an excellent guide who drove us to the river from Panama City. There we got into a dugout and sailed down the river to the Embera Village. You could see alligators in the water, spider monkeys in the trees and birds singing their hearts out. You a in a deep tropical rain forest. You come to the village and are greeted by the Chief and a band of musicians. You have a tour of the village, meet the "biological medicine man" and listen to the stories of the Embera Indians from the Chief's youngest son. We had lunch up in one of the main huts. Below is a market with their native wares, which were beautiful and reasonably priced. We watched and were asked to join in, as the Emberas played their flutes and drums and danced around in circles. The music was very tantalizing and enjoyable. We felt we had stepped back in time and were able to see a society that was rich and alive, but still clinging to its heritage.

Mario picked us up at our hotel in Panama City at 8:10 am. He spoke pretty good English. He was very helpful and friendly. It was a private tour with just me and my 9-year old daughter. He drove us to the boat launch dock where we met our two Embera boat drivers as well as a couple from Spain and their guide. All 8 of us rode the long canoe for about 20 minutes to the waterfall trail. We hiked for about 20 minute along and through the creek to the waterfall. Spend about 30 minute at the waterfall, swimming and playing on a log before heading to the village. The village was great, we got a talk from the elder about the village and their customs, danced with the locals, ate a local meal of fish and fried plantain, bought a few items from the stands set up by the families and walked around the village before returning to our hotel around 3pm. Overall, it was a great way to spend a day and Almiza Tours did a great job.

although it was a nice place to see this was purely an affair to get us to buy souvenir and very little about ethnography of the people who we visit. Some brought candies as souvenirs. Although it is nice to give gifts the candies are likely the worse thing for health of these children.

Our tour guide Mario was very personable and informative. He spoke English very well and discussed the culture and history of Panama's indigenous tribes (mainly Embera and Kuna). The canoe ride was great, the walk to the waterfall was a little tricky in certain areas. I have bad feet but was able to keep up, Mario and his driver made sure no one slipped or fell where it was slippery or narrow. The Embera people were warm and inviting, I really enjoyed their information (translated by Mario) and was amazed at the hand made items they had available for sale. The time and effort that goes into each and every piece is unimaginable. My biggest regret is that I didn't bring enough cash to buy one of the wood carvings as well as the baskets and other treasures.

We had an amazing time visiting this indigenous village. The guide was friendly and helpful. The locals were cheerful and made some typical dances and performances, which was great to get into spirit. Food was simple but delicious, freshly fried fish and plantain served in plantain leaves. Overall great adventure!
