Parara Puru Parara Puru

For a throwback to traditional Panamanian living, head to Chagres National Park (about 1 hour outside Panama City) to visit the Parara Puru tribe. The Parara Puru, an indigenous Embera community welcome travelers from all around, generously sharing their way of life and traditions with outside visitors. To reach the island of the Parara Puru, take a Piraga (makeshift motor boats) through the park. You’ll find many drivers at the edge of the park waiting to embark travelers.
