La Briyeka is an agrotourism farm located in the province of Cocle, approximately 2 and a half hours from the city. Here we will do exciting activities such as hiking, cane milling, junta de embarre * , and we’ll even have time to swim in the river!
*Junta de embarre – an age-old Panamanian tradition in which a community comes together to collectively build a home for a newly married couple out of barro (clay/mud). “Embarre” refers to the basic element of construction which is mud; formed of clay with water and is constantly stepped on by all participants until it acquires the necessary consistency to stick it to the walls. Other materials used to build the house are: wood/bamboo & dry grass.
Note: Junta de embarre is available for groups (10 people or more) if we have less people we’ll do an alternate activity like hiking and more time in the river.
