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 we engaged him privately to take us from Panama City to our next hotel near... More

It isnt common to take two hours to get to the lake. Like anywhere in the world traffic can occure. The public boat ramp is managed by the Panama Canal Authority and not only will they not install restroom facilities they wont allow the tour operators to do so. I cant understand their reasoning in this. When we load the... More

Captain Carl was a great guide and host. Heidi was a great hostess. It was a really welcoming, relaxed, and fun atmosphere. We hand fed monkeys, learned a lot about the construction of the canal, as well the flora and fauna around the canal. When we got to the floating lodge we had some beers, and a really good lunch...

We had an amazing time with Captain Carl and his team at Jungle Land Panama. We wish we would have spent the night at the floating lodge. We truly enjoyed ourselves.

I am very late with my review, but I'm sure things are probably the same. What a fantastic day!! Of the week we spent in Panama, this by far was the best day of all. It was packed with fun filled activity and we learned so much! There were many options to choose from at the Jungle hotel where we... More

Great trip! Picked us up at the hotel on time - drove through the city. Go on a Sunday if you can, traffic is easy. Got to the dock, boarded the boats and headed out into the canal. Saw a number of places where work was being done, explanations of what and how was being done were complete. Headed into... More

We had a fantastic day... what a wonderful day trip (we wished we stayed for 2 days)... fantastic to be out on the navigable channel of the canal and then informative guides telling you about history and wildlife. The afternoon kayaking trip is brilliant and requires zero skill but lots of sun cream. I will go as far as saying... More

This was a great tour. They picked us up from our hotel on time and took us to the site. The boat ride was very comfortable and the tour guide was great. He was very funny and gave us tons of information from what boats were on the canal, information on the expansion, the wildlife and plant life on the... More

Booking was easy and we were picked up at our hotel on time. The driver was friendly and very knowledgeable about Panamanian history and culture. Once on board the boat, Captain Carl was a fantastic tour guide. We learned about the canal, Gatun Lake, local flora, and monkeys. Lots of monkeys. The kids had a blast feeding them peanuts and...

After researching what we wanted to do in Panama, a visit to the canal and the Jungle were high on the list (as expected). We came across a handful of reviews (i cant believe there arent thousands) for this so decided to look on the website. We looked at the 2 main packages $125 for the day tour or $200... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review. Seeing the wildlife in the jungle is an opportunity of a life time - many, like yourselves, enjoy the chance to see the sloths, monkeys and crocs up close. We are blessed to have such a great cook as part of our team. We do appreciate you visiting... More
