Welcome to Parque Internacional La Amistad (Wekso)


La Amistad is also home to three indigenous groups: the Naso (or Teribe), the Bribrí and the Ngäbe Buglé. Although living traditional ways of life, these groups are dwindling fast under outside influences. In an effort to preserve their identity and provide income, the Naso created an ecological center at Wekso, the former site of the infamous US-run Pana-Jungla survival school. Today, more travelers are discovering the beauty of both the rugged wilderness of La Amistad and the Naso's ancestral culture.
