Cultural immersion

8 nights

We invite you to discover and live an experience like no other.

We will take you to meet 2 of the indigenous groups in Panama, where you will have the opportunity to meet and learn about their fascinating traditions, customs, culture and way of life

Our first approach will be with the Guna Yala region. A Panamanian paradise!! The San Blas archipelago (formerly known as the Mulatas archipelago) is a group of 365 small islands and islets belonging to Panama located off the north coast of the Isthmus, east of the Panama Canal, of which only about 80 are inhabited. It is the home of the Guna indigenous people, who are part of the Guna Yala comarca along the Caribbean coast of Panama.

After enjoying this little paradise we will continue with our adventure and we will go to the province of Darién, one of the regions with the greatest natural and cultural resources of the Republic of Panama, currently its great natural wealth is favored by the low density of its population. which is at the same time culturally rich, has 3 main cultural groups: the Indigenous community (Emberá-Wounaan), the Afro-descendant population (Afro-Colonial) and the peasant or interior population (immigrants from the Central and Northern part of Panama), in addition of other populations of lower density, which have learned to share and coexist harmoniously over the years.
