The Embera Indian communitt lives in Emberache Puru inside the Gatun Lake. This community of Indians live today much as they did when the discoverer of the Pacific Ocean, Vasco Nu ez de Balboa, first set foot in Panama. Discover their cultures and enjoy a presentation of their dances. We will continue with a boat ride inside Gatun Lake where flora and fauna will leave you breathless.
