Once at the port by the Chagres River, friendly Embera villagers will take you and the guide in a traditional canoe for 30 minutes in the Chagres river, the main source of water for the Panama Canal.


We will leave the boat at one shore of the river from where we will start the hike to a hidden waterfall.

Once in the village, you will be welcomed by this friendly community.
