Nantorro, Buenas, and Hello!
The Millennial Future is a tourism cooperative founded by the members of the indigenous Ngabe community, Boca Guariviara, and supported by two former Peace Corps Volunteers who lived and worked in the area from 2016 until 2018. Our vision is to share the rich Ngabe culture and give visitors the experience of living a different lifestyle. With The Millennial Future, you will explore a side of Panama seldom seen.
This is not a glamorized tour! This is a retreat style experience where you will walk in the shoes of indigenous Panamanians. The community of Boca Guariviara is located in one of the 10 indigenous reservations in Panama. The community is accessible by boat only and does not have electricity, indoor plumbing, or the comforts of US style bathrooms. Take the opportunity to interact with the locals, try local all organic foods, and explore a world nearly forgotten by first world globalization.
This can be a powerful experience. You will find that what the villagers of Boca Guariviara lack in material possessions is greatly made up for in natural beauty and simplicity of lifestyle. By escaping the mundane and embracing a different way of life, we will recognize all the similarities that bind us as a human species. This experience can leave us with greater respect for ourselves, our lives, and for people in general.
In an increasingly chaotic and xenophobic world, we here at The Millennial Future believe retreat experiences such as these are worth seeking out and we want to be your guides on that journey.
