Ngäbe Buglè Indian Reserve

Only 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) west of AWAKE is the border with the Ngäbe-Buglé Indian territory, which extends from Chiriquí to Bocas del Toro. This tribe was formerly known as the Guaymi. The lack of connectivity with the rest of the country has well-preserved the local culture and traditions of the Indians. The “Nagua” is the native dress of the Guaymi women. The Ngäbe Buglé are two separate ethni-linguistic groups (The Ngäbe and the Buglé). They are Panama’s most numerous indigenous tribes with a population of about 180,000 Ngäbes and 10,000 Buglés.

Village of Calovébora

Adjacent to AWAKE , at the mouth of the Calovébora River, lies the village of Calovébora. This small coastal community, comprised principally of Indians, is one of the more developed villages in the region. Very recently, the new road from Santa Fé to Calovébora has connected this coastal community with the interior portion of the country.

Calovébora River

Rio Calovébora, as it winds its’ way south into the rugged mountainside, passes through numerous small Indian villages. Complete with schools and basic amenities, the people are very friendly and eager to please. The river can be run with shallow kayaks, and the surrounding hillside is perfect for mountain biking enthusiasts; the single trek path runs alongside this river ´en route´ to Calovébora.

Santiago

Santiago, a 2-hour drive from AWAKE , is the capital of Veraguas with excellent infrastructure and a large variety of amenities including banking facilities, shopping centers, restaurants and a large number of hotels. Because Santiago is rather a crossroads and a commercial center it continues to grow apace while still retaining a decidedly small-town flavor.
