Our transportation takes us to the port of El Corotú on the shores of Lake Alajuela. Here, the Embera Indians will be waiting for us to take us in their narrow canoes called piragua, a typical boat of the first inhabitants of the Panamanian jungle. On our way, we will enjoy sightings of birds, mammals, locals and a spectacular waterfall can only be reached after a short walk through the jungle. After a refreshing swim, we will continue our journey towards the Embera indigenous community.
