Panama is home to a large Amerindian community that, with ancestral customs, traditional craftsmanship and a communicative joie de vivre, attracts the interest of travellers who are sensitive to cultures of origin. There are 7 very different groups of Amerindians in Panama, all of whom are accessible to visitors who respect their environment. It is a unique experience that is often accompanied by a guide to ensure the smooth running of the stay.
