Travelling across the Chagres River to visit with the Embera Tribal village was very unique. We were met by the tribal inhabitants who were gracious hosts. Their main tribal leader with the help of a translator explained how they live. They are happy and gracious and utilize all materials in their area to either use it for dye, making baskets, carving wood sculptures and weaving blankets to name a few. And the wood carving is amazing. They explain how they take a regular log of wood and carve a beautiful piece of art from it. You can purchase their carvings, blankets and jewelry as each family puts out their wares. They performed tribal dances and then each tribal member picked one of us to dance with them. Very uneven surface so wear sturdy shoes with lots of steps from rivers edge to main area. I recommend a visit.
