People in Central America
Panama is still inhabited by seven pre-Columbian tribes, whereas Wounaan is one of them. They live along with the Embera people in the jungle in the east of the country all the way down to Darian. They tend to be friendly and welcome visitors, especially those villages with proximity to the Pan-American highway, but it is also those that are most modern. In some places, the people still go about their business semi-naked, but you need to do some river travel to reach these. Otherwise, don't be surprised to find a phone booth and western clothes in the villages.
