The Embera Indian Village Tour is a visit to the community of the Embera Parara Puru in the banks of the Chagres river. The tour starts on the port of Corotu, where you will embark on dugout canoes to travel up the Chagres river in an exploration were you will see waterfalls, exotic vegetation and a myriad of aquatic birds. The first stop on the tour is to trek through a system of creeks, streams and river rocks on the way to a magnificent waterfall and natural pool where you can swim. After the trekking, you will be taken to the Embera Parara Puru community where you will have lunch while an artisan from the village shows you how the famous Embera baskets and sculptures are made. After lunch, you will see and hear the Embera on 3 different dances.
