¡Buenas! Today we woke up in Panama City and had one final opportunity to embrace the uniqueness of the rich Panamanian culture.
During our bus ride, we were fortunate enough to receive an overview of the Emberá people through the lens of our expert tour guide, Manuel.
First, we were guided to the canoes that would take us to Emberá village to learn interesting facts about their tribe from the village leader. At the village, we were welcomed by the people with an elaborate song played by their handcrafted instruments.
Shortly after the presentation we were invited to partake in a delicious traditional meal which was followed by an opportunity to admire and purchase handmade crafts.
Just when we thought the day couldn’t get any better we were honored to observe a traditional dance they had prepared for us and even invited us to participate!
We were sad to say goodbye to our new friends at the Emberá village but we all agreed this was an amazing ending to our unforgettable experience in Panama!
