Excellent experience, the children loved it, the swimming in the lake, the boat ride, the kayaks, the floating house, lunch on the house. The day they will never forget.

We didn’t do our research properly and we didn’t realise it was 2 hours in a minibus from our hotel in Panama City to the boat, quite a long way down the canal. By the way our English-speaking driver(Saul) on the tour was excellent and...More

$115 for adults and $69 for children per their website. Perhaps there is a different cost if you book it though another seller.
