Keteka is a marketplace where travelers can book unique, authentic tours and activities with validated local guides. While serving in the Peace Corps in rural Panama, the founders were working on community tourism projects and realized that they wanted to create a better way to connect purposeful travelers with authentic, local experiences. "Keteka" is an indigenous Panamanian word that means "to get close to" and that's our goal, to bring you closer to your destination's culture, food, people, and natural environment.

SUMMARY

Support An Indigenous Community Of Women Weavers By Visiting Their Workshop And Store, Followed By An Amazing Hike.

DETAILS

Telares El Chile cooperative began in the 1980’s to reintroduce traditional cotton dyeing and weaving to this indigenous community. Now, a third generation of women teach weaving classes as well as producing wallets, purses and backpacks for sale. It’s a successful example of preserving a people’s historic culture and your participation sustains their efforts. Also, you will visit another workshop where the women use one of the world’s oldest weaving techniques.
Later hike up to the viewpoint of Cerro El Chile, where there is a 360-degree view of the valley and surrounding mountains. Finally, share a traditional lunch in the home of one of the weavers, giving you an inside look at their lifestyle. You have the opportunity to purchase handicrafts directly from the artistic women who produce them.
