I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Embera Indian village, which despite being touristy (as in being visited by lots of other tourists at the same time as me) was respectful, informative and joyful. The dances and food were a celebration of cultural pride, the crafts beautiful and the atmosphere open. These are not forgotten or underprivileged people, but educated and talented families that have made a conscious choice to retain their culture and protect the rainforest while being fully modern Panamanian citizens. Well organized, physically undemanding, affordable - a perfect day trip from Panama City.
