The Emberá and Wounaan in Chagres and Chepo

in Panama two ethnic races are natives of the Darien jungle, which is somewhat far from the capital city, and can be accessed by plane or in small cruise ships, however Emberá and Wounaan communities exist in areas closer to Panama City. The former can be found in Lake Alajuela, in the Canal region, in the towns of Parará Purúand Drúa. The Wounaan have settlements close to the Chagres river, also in the Canal area, in San Antonio, Mocambo andElla Purú. Other settlements close to the capital city are a short distance away, in the areas near Chepo, located towards the province of Darien, among them the Emberá Ipetí community. In all these communities, the members of these ethnic races live just like they do in Darien, conserving their customs, their foods and their beautiful craftsmanship, which can be obtained there.
