Description

$5 water taxi to the Emberá community. $45 to enter the community but if you speak Spanish you might be able to enter for $20 but negotiate before you get on the boat - say you don't want lunch and the show. we opted for a $35 tour to the waterfall and passed by the 1st and 2nd embera tribes, driver waited for an hour while we swam, a bit of boat tours competition at the river bank so ended up paying $30, it's about 30 mins to the waterfall.
free parking on the left where buses park, police nearby

Came back today to do the tour. Great experience!! We first took a lancha ride up river and did a short hike to some water falls. Afterwards we took the lancha downstream and stopped in one of the villages. We got fruits and fish for lunch, there was an artisan market and some authentic dances. All in all a great experience!!!

Report Check-In

We just got here and intended on staying the night and do the boat tour tomorrow. Plenty of parking but a local recommended to drive back to the city and come back the next morning. He said it's not safe to park here at night... This was the first time on our 8month trip from the US that a local approached us saying an area was not safe. We left!
