DAY 3, Sunday - Miraflores Locks, Panama Canal and Panama City Tour
Today, start at Miraflores Locks at the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal. Here, view the locks in operation and watch in amazement as over 20 million gallons of water are transferred in less than 10 minutes. The Panama Canal is an astonishing example of modern engineering, considered to be one of the "wonders of the world". More than 12,000 ocean-going vessels pass through it a year, over 30 a day! Hopefully, you'll see a freighter passing through the locks today; it will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. After lunch, continue with a tour of Panama City. View the magnificent Catedral de Panamá, elegantly dominating the Plaza de la Independencia, the National Theater and the bayside monument to French entrepreneurs who envisioned the Panama Canal. Continue to the ever-expanding modern section before enjoying an afternoon at leisure for personal explorations. Perhaps, join the optional tour to Frank Gehry's Biodiversity Museum. The first building in Latin America designed by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry, the Biomuseo is located on the Amador Causeway, a prominent area at the entrance to the Panama Canal in the Pacific Ocean. Eight galleries and eight "devices of wonder" tell you about the origin of the Panamanian isthmus and its gigantic impact on the planet's biodiversity

DAY 4, Monday - Embera Indigenous Village
Begin your Embera adventure with the arrival in the rainforest at Chagres National Park, in the eastern sector of the Panama Canal. Here, transfer to a "piragua" (paddle dugout canoe) that takes you on a journey into the jungle to meet the indigenous Embera tribe known as the "keepers of the rainforest". You’ll be warmly welcomed with cultural dances and music that hasn't changed much since Columbus arrived in the 1500's. Watch as the women craft baskets out of palm leaves and demonstrate their native art. If time allows, explore some of the local flora and learn about the rituals and medicinal uses. The Embera Indians will offer you a specially prepared traditional meal before you return back to civilization. The rest of the day is yours at leisure or take an optional afternoon excursion to discover the rich historical background of Panama on the Historic Trail of Panama and Canal. Learn about the United States involvement in the Panama Canal and see various sites that were involved in the military aspect of Panama.
