    Chagres National Park
    Stop: 5 hours - Admission included
    The day begins with the transfer by car from your hotel or residence in Panama City to the Chagres National Park, one of the most important forest and water reserves in Panama, where a traditional canoe will take us to a point in the middle of the Chagres River, from where we will hike in the jungle to a waterfall where you can take a bath in its refreshing water. After this extraordinary experience, we will visit an Emberá indigenous community who will welcome us to enjoy a typical lunch, music, dances and a talk about the culture and way of life in this village.
