Itinerary

Pick up at 8:AM
Duration: Full Day

You'll be pick up at the Hotel around 8AM and transferred to El Corotu on the shores of the Madden Lake, which is the main reservoir of drinking water for the cities of Panama and Colon, as well as a supplier of a 40% of the water required for the operation of the Panama Canal.

Here, we board a motorized piragua (dugout canoe) and travel up the Chagres River to a Embera indigenous village. The boat journey takes us through the rainforest of the 320,000 acre Chagres National Park, which is the largest of the National Parks protecting the Panama Canal Watershed. Once at the indian community, we'll learn about Embera customs and their relationship with nature.
There will be handcrafts available for sale and we'll have a chance to be painted with the traditional jagua, a natural dye the indians use to adorn their bodies.

We will have lunch (fish & fried green plantain) prepared by the indians and then we'll visit the nearby waterfall where we can take a dip in the crystal? clear waters of the Chagres River. Be sure to bring: camera, cap or hat, sunscreen lotion, insect repellant, light clothing (extra t?shirt and shorts), light raincoat, good traction footwear, bathing suit and towel.

Note: Cash in small amounts is suggested if interested in purchasing handicrafts.
