The Chagres River is virtually unseen in the trek trough the Chagres National Park due to the lack of access roads, protection against settlers, and the previous non-existence of Aventuras Panamá. This part of the river, characterized by currents alternating with backwaters, is considered as Class II, although several rapids are considered Class III by the International Classification of River Navigation.
As a result of dense tropical forest that covers the basin of the river, sedimentation is minimum; therefore, clear water can be expected very often. The flora is typical of the tropical rain forest, with more than three hundred species per hectarea. Although it is the natural habitat of big mammals such as tapir and jaguar, tropical rainforest animals , they are very seldom encountered. It is much easier to spot several others samples of the fauna, such as monkeys of the rainforest(spider, howler, whiteface capuchin , Geoffrey's Tamarin), sloth, river otter, iguana, tucan, and plenty of fish.
Once in the virgin jungle of Chagres National Park you will ask if this is the next tvshow survivor panama destination.
Our guides are trained in white-water navigation skills, first-aid and CPR.
Many people who take our Day Tour wish they had chosen the Overnight Tour instead. After spending time with the Ember people you will never want to leave!
The Youth Unplugged Adventures are designed to assist today's modern world youth to completely unplug from technology. They will spend their time surrounded by the warm and friendly Ember people, who entertain themselves by face to face conversations, playing soccer, swimming in the river or using their imaginations to invent a new game.
They will observe how the village children have the freedom to run and play, and how the older kids love to include the younger children and work out disagreements on their own.
We believe that by spending time with the Ember tribe, the young people who join us on this Unplugged Adventure will have their eyes, minds and hearts opened to a new culture. They will never be the same after experiencing and accepting a very different way of life.
They will learn how to interact with others in the 'old fashioned way', face to face, eye to eye and heart to heart. We are confident that this experience of stepping back into a simpler world will provide the youth with invaluable tools and experiences to help prepare them for adult life back in the modern world.
This is an amazing opportunity for families who have found themselves caught up in the rat race of the modern world, always rushing to work, school, sports and activities.
Many families today rarely have the time to sit down all together and share a meal without the distractions of cell phones, email, text messages, Facebook, video games, iPads, etc.
We believe that by bringing your family to the Emberá village it will reconnect families who may have gotten lost along the way by their busy lives in the modern world. You will be able to observe the gentle and loving parenting style of the Emberá people and observe how happy, creative and at peace they are with no electricity, internet and not even cell phone signal!
Immersing your family in Emberá village life will help you to re-acquaint yourselves as a family and bond together through your shared experience and create some unforgettable memories.
On August 15, 1914, the SS Ancon made the first official ocean to ocean transit through the Panama Canal. This event, that soon proved to have changed the world forever, was possible thanks to the labor of more than 75,000 men and women who worked for 10 years facing unprecedented challenges. Since 1914, more than 1,000,000 vessels have transited through the waterway bringing commerce, cultures, and people from all corners of the world closer together. On June 26, 2016, the expansion of the Panama Canal was completed.
Discover the Panama Canal’s natural attributes and visit the current Panama Canal expansion works, share a unique experience with thriving indigenous people, explore tropical cloud forests in the Chiriqui Highlands known for the best outdoor adventures and coffee in the country, experience the Spanish colonial forts in Portobelo and take a swim in the crystal clear Caribbean waters.
