I meant to thank you for your reply but failed to do so in a punctual way - so thank you. I have been doing some research and with your response believe that we will do this excursion. I am definitely not one to want to do the shopping/jewelry stores, etc. in ports. DH and I much prefer stepping out of our comfort zone and stepping in to other cultures. We like to walk amongst actual residents and eat at local eateries and with street vendors selling native treats. We don't always like the different foods but we always enjoy the experience and we're sure to enjoy the Embera Tribe as well. Again, thank you.
