Soloy Indigenous Community Full Day Trip | Chiriqui, Panama

Posted by | January 17th, 2012

One of last year's favorite trips amongst our Spanish students was the visit we made to the Ngöbe-Buglé indigenous community located in Soloy. In that visit we not only discovered the Ngöbe-Buglé way of life, but we also took part in their traditional dances, participated in a handicraft lesson and learned how to make Chácaras (Ngöbe-Buglé bags). We also had the opportunity to admire Chiriqui's lowland natural beauty at its best. You can checkout photos of last year's visit to Soloy by clicking here...

During this year's Panama high season we will visit Soloy four times:

  • Sunday January 22nd
  • Sunday March 18th
  • Sunday May 20th
  • Sunday August 12th

For Habla Ya Spanish students this trip will only cost $75 per person (and $95 per person for non students).
