Historic Tour of Cubitá

Fascinating Archaeological Site of One of Panama's Pre-Columbian Cultures

This morning excursion takes you to the homeland of the Cubitá, the name for the thriving Pre-Columbian indigenous people that inhabited this rich land 550-700 A.D.. Journey along the banks of La Villa River, the life source of this village, to trace where they tended cattle and corn as the peninsula’s farmers. Decipher their petroglyphs, and then climb the nearby hill to visit one of Panama’s most telling archaeological sites, Cerro Juan Diaz, for peeks at this preserved burial site. Learn more with your guide about the findings of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute and Instituto Nacional de Cultural de Panamá at Cerro Juan Diaz, under excavation since 1992. Reconstruct a different time period as you watch the current discoveries of tombs, graves, tools, gold and copper. Finish your historic trail in a colonial style home where independence for Panama from Spain was first declared, an event that sparked the Republic’s independence in 1821 and is celebrated every November 10.
