This is a perfect opportunity to visit an indigenous village in the midst of a wonderful natural setting that supports the harmony of their lifestyle and traditions. As soon as the day breaks, you are are picked up at your hotel and transferred to the banks of the Lara River. Here, we board a motorized piragua (dugout canoe) and travel up the Lara River to the Wounaan indigenous community of Puerto Lara. The boat journey takes us through the rainforest of Torre Isleta.
At the Wounaan village we will be greeted with dancing and music. We will learn about Wounaan customs and their relationship with nature. There will be handcrafts available for sale and we will have a chance to be painted with the traditional jagua, a natural dye the Wounaan use to adorn their bodies. After a lunch of fish, plantain, and fresh fruit served in traditional style by the Wounaan, we head back up the Panamerican highway to the town of Torti where we will spend the night at Hotel Avicar.
