What you will do

One of our favorite tours, travel up river in a motorized canoe and learn about traditions and customs as presented by this BriBri women’s group.
A river trip in a traditional dugout canoe begins this unique opportunity to share and learn from a culture struggling to maintain its identity. Participate in daily life, take interpretive hikes; practice your basket weaving, chocolate production, roof thatching, & cooking skills; learn some of the BriBri language, history and folklore, from ancient times, to Colombian times, to the current struggle.
In this tour we will visit a Bribri Indigenous territory, located in the heart of the humid tropical forest in the Talamanca Mountains. This special experience will allow us to discover part the Bribri culture. The tour begins in Bambú, the reserve’s closest commercial town. There we will ride along the Yorkín River in an indigenous canoe, watching the exuberant vegetation of the Costa Rican and the Panamanian side of the river.

One hour later, we will be arriving to Yorkín’s indigenous territory, from where we will walk 25 minutes to get to the Stibrawpa women’s house Lodge. A local guide will tell us about this organization and its purposes, then take us for a walk along the natural trail, where we will learn about the local trees, medicinal plants and community’s crops. For lunch, we will enjoy a typical meal. We will also participate in the process of making chocolate and will learn how they weave leaves to make their homes. After this unforgettable natural and cultural experience, we will return.
