Ultimate Embera Tour

We have started a new tour with an English/Spanish speaking guide. This tour will be 2 nights and 3 days. It will include all transport to and from Panama city. You can take a hammock in the traditional roundhouse or if preferred camp in our tents with mattresses, sheets, pillows, and lamp. We have boogie boards, fishing equipment, football, volleyball, kayaks and other games available. You will get daily tours as well as the Embera ceremonial dance and music presentation. Visit the bat caves and canyon on Lago Bayano, swim with the children in the river, visit the school and so much more. There is no other tour like it in Panama.

Why The Ultimate Embera Tour?

Sleep in a traditional, mystical Roundhouse

Volleyball, Football, Frisbee and Hammocks

River tubing, Kayak, Boogie and paddle boards

Round House cooking fire, traditional food and friendly Embera hosts

The Ultimate Embera Tour is based in Ipeti which is just off the Pan American highway on the way to the Darien. It is a great example of old meets new and an insight into how the Embera embrace change within their community but hold onto their cultural roots. This is not a touristy Embera village. We are working with them to improve sanitation, rubbish removal and recycling practices, a sustainable organic garden for food production and education for the children.

Tour Highlights:

Cultural Dance, music, crafts and history of the Embera tribe

Jungle and waterfall trek
