On your arrival to Bríbripa one of its members will greet you in bribri and will take you on trails through the rain forest where along the way will introduce the use of medicinal plants.
During your hike you will encounter a large rock where a bribri woman will show you how corn is ground. This is part of the custom to show that she is ready to marry. The men must carry this enormous rock to their next home! You can grind the corn and perhaps later at lunch taste the delicious atol.
As you hike the trail the the bribri elder will explain the valuable relationship that exists between the mountain and the bribri. On your journey you can observe the magnitude of the Bribri Salitre Territory and marvel at the immense mountains along the way.
Be prepared to participate in peeling rice and finally visit Ú Sulë where the Cosmo vision of the bribri will be explained. With a little more knowledge of this culture you will be ready to participate in a lesson in the bribri language.
Later after a delicious lunch you will observe the presentation of a bribri dance, the pride of the Centro Cultural Bríbripa (the Bríbripa Cultural Center). Don’t forget to visit the handicraft store before leaving.
