DAY 3: Embera Indian Village

This tour was designed for you to step aboard a time machine and travel back more than 600 years; to a Central America only few have had the privilege of experiencing.

A proud people, who have been able to maintain their traditions and lifestyle as it was before the Spaniards colonized the region. In the Village, the Chief will welcome you with traditional Emberá hospitality.

A series of dances have been arranged to add to this cultural exchange. Feel free to wonder the village, ask questions or interact with these quiet people.

DAY 4: The Expansion of the Panama Canal and Train Ride

Having completed a major reconstruction of the rail lines, The Panama Rail Company is again carrying passengers. The rail cars are richly adorned, bringing back the elegance of railway travel that once was. Your journey will begin in Balboa on the Pacific coast, running northwest toward Cristobal on the Atlantic side.

The train hugs the canal for most of the journey and even crosses sections of the Gatun Lake, by way of small islands and trestle bridges and you will enjoy fantastic views of the busy Panama Canal. Continuing towards Cristobal, you will find yourself in the middle of deep tropical forest that is now the Gatun Lake.

Upon arrival at Colon, you will visit the Panama Canal Expansion, the largest project at the Canal since its original construction. The project will created a new lane of traffic along the Canal through the construction of a new set of locks, doubling the waterway’s capacity, be a witness of this major undertaking by visiting the New Observation Center of the Canal Expansion.

The return route to Panama City will take you past the former Panama Canal Zone where the military installations of the American administration are a gentle reminder of the strategic importance of the area.
