Venture up the Mogue River to find the Embera Indians who will take you into the heart of their village to learn about their traditions and lifestyle and to see some of the local dances and craftsmanship. Try to spot some of the rare, endangered species endemic to the park including the Black-Headed Spider Monkey, the Capybara and American Crocodile.
