Go on a cultural odyssey

Panama is indeed as diverse and colorful in its cultural tapestry as it is in its land use, with influences from its indigenous tribes, Spanish colonizers, enslaved Africans, and immigrants from around the world. Travelers will have many chances to further plunge into these different national legacies: pre-Columbian ruins, colonial cities, and native villages.

Exploring the Colonial Cities

Colonial cities in Panama have cobblestone streets, colorful architecture, and centuries-old churches that make one’s soul drift to the past. One can walk around the old town of Panama City, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in its historic streets of Casco Viejo, where every building narrates a story of conquest, trade, and cultural exchange.

Encountering Indigenous Traditions

Panama hosts seven indigenous tribes, each possessing its customs, languages, and ways of life. With Embera Tours, the visitor can get immersed in the traditions of these ancient cultures, take part in traditional ceremonies, or learn about medicinal plants. It even offers the possibility of spending the night in one of the Embera villages. It’s a chance to experience and learn about their worldview, where people are connected to nature in a profound way.
