The Kekoldi Indigenous Reserve Tour is a five to six hour cultural and biological experience. The path you will travel on is the main road of transportation for the Kekoldi community. Despite the amount of travel done the richness of the surrounding forest has been preserved and has maintained it’s natural beauty.
The tour begins with a hike up through the lush forest into the main Kekoldi community. A local native will guide you on the hike and describe the surrounding history and the local flora and fauna.
Upon arriving in the community, you will be welcomed by Doña Maura, the president of the Kekoldi committee. She will describe who they are, how they have lived, their pre-Colombian lifestyle, and their religious practices and ceremonies.
The hike continues up to the Kekoldi tower and observatory. This incredible sight looks out over the Caribbean sea, the Talamanca Mountain Range and the Panamanian Mountains. The treetops are home to a variety of butterflies and birds.
After visiting the observatory, we will hike on to the Kekoldi waterfall that was once a ceremonial ground for healing rituals. At the waterfall you will have time to relax and swim in the freshing waters.
Once returning to the community you will be served a traditional organic Kekoldi lunch, prepared by Doña Maura. The lunch will include a variety of foods including: yuca, ayote, chayote, palmito, grilled farmed chicken accompanied by a traditional drink of chocolate iced tea.
