I am writing you this note because I want you to know what a great employee you have in Robin! We have worked with her now for at least two if not more cruises, and she always handles everything quickly and promptly and with ease for us. We have had to change dates a couple of times with the latest cruise we are booking with your company and she always handles it graciously and with ease. Robin is great to work with, and with customer service as good as hers is we will keep coming back to her for our travel needs! Thanks! — Tyson B.

Visit the Embera Indians: The Embera Indians are the indigenous people of Panama. In fact, many of the people in both Panama and Columbia trace their ancestral history back to the Embera Indians. In the heart of the Chagres National Park the Embera culture lives on and what better way to explore Colon than to meet the indigenous people of the area and get to know their amazing culture.

The Embera Indian Village is a bit of journey from the port stop in Colon. The excursions to the area usually pick you up from the port stop, drive you to Lake Alajuela, and take you by canoe through the rainforest before you finally arrive at the village. The entire trip usually last for approximately five to six hours.

Once at the village you are in for a real treat! The Embera Indians are very nice and love to welcome their guests. Enjoy a ceremonial dance, learn about their medicines and herbs local to the surroundings from their shaman and be immersed in the lifestyle and culture of their people.

Excursions to the Embera Indian Village are a pretty sought after experience, so it is best to talk to one of our advisors in advance to schedule this excursion. We will help to get you the best deal and have everything prearranged before you embark on the excursion.
