Beginning of a Piragua

We have this interesting photograph, but not much data attached with it. Can you help us add more?

We know this type of boat is typically used in shallow areas, so did you ever see piraguas in the waters around Panama?

In our research, we found several different spellings and pronunciations for “Piragua” do you know if this one is the correct spelling and usage for this image?

Have you ever been in a piragua– either of wood, or the more modern variety?

Please share any information or memories with us in the comments section below!
