About
Our guide will driver for 50 minutes to the dock. Board a canoe for a 20-minute trip along the river, then stretch your legs on a short walk to a pond and waterfall(depending on weather). Bring a bathing suit if you’d like to swim in the waterfall, which is the perfect place to cool off from the tropical heat. Return to the canoe for the 25-minute ride to an Embera village. You’ll have time to explore the village, get to know some local people, and learn about life in the Embera community. Sit down to a traditional Embera lunch, then watch a dance that depicts the Embera’s relationship with the natural world. Before departing the village, shop for traditional handicrafts and souvenirs made by the local people. Head back down the river by canoe, and meet the bus for the return trip to Panama City, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel Note: On this tour you might be merged with another group at the Embera site and in a bus.

AMAZING! Definitely do this excursion!
Aug 2021 • Friends
Our tour guide Enrique Levy was amazing! He promptly picked us up and gave us a ton of information about panama on our way to the embera village. He brought us waters and ponchos and was always looking to do things that would enhance our experience. Once we got to the village he translated for us so we could really take in everything the tribe was telling us about their culture. The embera people were so welcoming. They greeted us and made us the most delicious lunch you will ever eat. Then they answered questions, offered temporary tattoos to anyone who wanted one, and showed us their crafts. After we did some shopping they showed us their traditional dances and music. We were invited to dance with them and be a part of it. At the end they gifted us their flower crowns and waved us off. It was an experience you do not want to miss. It was amazing! And if you can get enrique as your tour guide it will be even better!

Best part of Panama
Jul 2021 • Friends
This was an amazing experience. I met Levy who was my tour guy and he showed us and explained pretty much everything you would like to know about Panama. We met the leader of one of the tribes and they explained their culture, fed us, & danced for us. They showed us how they live and what they grow and eat. The canoe was hand made; the water was fresh and clear. The fruits were juicy and fresh. I even got a Hannah tattoo lol It was amazing best part was shopping jewelry that were hand made by them. I will definitely recommend this tour w/ Levy. Thank you Levy for your time and great experience.

Amazing day on the Chagres River and with the friendliest people of the indigenous tribe!
Enrique was amazing! He spoke flawless English and interpreted everything for us from the tribe. We had an amazing day, from the canoe ride, time with the tribe, and the lunch of fresh fish, plantains, and fruit. Highly recommend this experience!

very interesting but a little expensive
Feb 2020
We learned a great deal about the village and how the Tribe make things and the different ways to dye material they use. The sample of the food that they prepared was good and interesting, The program that the Tribe put on was very good. The only issue that we have is the cost was a little high for what you got. The cost would be more inline at $75.00 per person vs $125.00

Thank you your comments and we are gald that you found our experience interesting. Due to the fact that we run the embera tour for you privately cost are higher than a shared tour where you have to be with other guests. We do have a shared option on Viator/ Tripadvisor for a lower cost! Thank you again Donald

Wonderful Visit to Tusipono Embera Village
Aug 2019
In addition to arranging airport transfers through R&E (which was on time and reasonably priced), we scheduled this tour to visit an Embera tribe village. Rafael was our guide (and he also had been our airport driver) and he was great. He and Agosto (?sp), our tour driver, went out of their way to help my friend who did not have the best footwear for the waterfall hike and had to assist her walking through the mud (prepare yourself for possible muddy conditions and traversing water above your knees (if you're short like me). Traveling on the Chagres River in a wooden dugout canoe was lovely. After the hike, we visited the village where we heard its history from the tribe elder. One of the village women then described how they make their basket handicrafts. Then we had a delicious lunch of fish and plantains and were so fortunate that we got to hold and feed a 4-1/2 month-old howler monkey that had been adopted by the tribe after its mother had been killed by a four-foot hawk. I also received a henna-like tattoo (made from a fruit-based ink) which was very special to me. This was followed by a musical performance and dancing by the tribe and then we joined in. Finally, we were able to make purchases of their beautiful handicrafts. This was a wonderful excursion from Panama which I would highly recommend and R&E were very helpful and responsive in getting it all set up. ¡Gracias!
