We spent a little, but interesting time with the Embera Indians in Panama. The costumes were wonderful. The village looked authentic (though I wondered if it were just a replica village for tourists). The dancing was cool. The history was memorable..

This is a half-day tour which takes only 1 hour from Panama city. Due to my previous great experience with Tamara (phone +507 6324-2898) ensuring cheapest prices compared with agencies, I visited Embera tribe at Chagres river booking the tour with her. Once you get at Puerto Corotu (actually is a dock to embark from canoes), you can feel that... More

Experiencing the Embera Tribe with Anne was on of the most enjoyable days of my time in Panama~! With her deep knowledge of the Tribe, and passion for sharing the life of the people in the Village, this was a must do on the visit to Panama~!

First, getting to the Chagres River from Panama City is a rough ride. After a half hour, the roads are unpaved in places and there are pot holes aplenty. Thankfully there'd been no rain so we didn't have to contend with mud. Once reaching the river, we boarded boats, really rowboats with motors and because they're low in the water,... More

Visit an Embera Village. Aboriginal people who relocated to help build the Panama Canal have settled in villages they established along local river ways. Incredibly friendly people with fascinating history and lifestyle. Natural plant dye tattoos adorn many people, dance along with the inhabitants to joyous musical entertainment. Pick up from embarkation area in a "canoe" , view wildlife along... More

Jorge made our day very enjoyable and interesting. After he and his driver picked us up in their van, we had an hours drive into the jungle. There we were met by two men from the Embera Village. They took us across the lake and river in their dug out canoe for a 45 minute ride to the village. The... More

Guided by an enthusiastic man but could not understand much of his accent. He showed us a modern museum and ancient ruins.

I really compared tour companies and felt that Anne Gordon's tour was the best and we were not disappointed. You pay a little more and go deeper into the jungle but the villagers were very friendly and sharing a meal and dance and hiking into the jungle to see their natural medicines and enjoying their crafts it was really wonderful....
