Ella Drua is a community of about 120 residents, tucked away in the hills and jungle and found upriver on the Rio Gatun, in the province of Colon. We employ tourism and agriculture to sustain our communities and preserve our culture and environment. You will find our Emberá and Wounaan women wearing brightly colored wrap skirts called parumas and our men wearing traditional cloths and beaded jewelry.
The Emberá and Wounaan are master artisans in Panama, known for our woven baskets and masks as well as the quality wood carvings of cocobolo and intricate tagua carvings.Enjoy the traditional music and dance of the Emberá and Wounaan as you explore Ella Drua.
