    What a great day, great crew and great catamaran...or are they called vessels??? My friend and I had our favorite day of our trip on this excursion. The crew was very kind and energetic. They did a great job of remembering our names even though there were at least 20 guests.
    ** Check in is inside the Marina building with Red Cat Catamaran.

    One of the best excursions I have ever taken in my life. David was our tour guide and he was phenomenal! I am a solo traveler and I felt very safe during the entire trip. The boat ride was absolutely breath taking. Each island was insanely beautiful and I felt like we spent enough time at each location. The fruit and lunch options were great. All the other travelers in my group were super friendly. I do not speak any Spanish and our tour guide did speak English, some of the other travelers also helped translate when needed. I loved the hammocks on the 2nd island and loved the stop to explore all of the star fish!

    Book this trip! It’s totally worth it!

    Our guide and our driver picked us up from the hotel right on time in the morning. The minibus was very clean with a proper driver and a bilingual guide who grew up in Miami. It's a good start.
    After a 30 min drive we reached a river from where the boat trip would start. These 30 min were put to good use by our guide who told us about the Canal s construction and Panama in general.
    We then sailed on the canal and the gatun lake on a flat bottom speedboat. Again the boat captain was as apt as our minibus driver and a very good spotter of animals in the trees.
    We then had a walk in the forest on the pipeline walk a forest again rich of animals and insects sighting.
    A quick lunch at a simple but good enough local restaurant completed the tour before riding back to the hotel.
    We genuinely enjoyed the tour which was a great opportunity to mix experiencing the canal and great nature sightseeing.
    The whole organisation felt very fluid and secure.
    It's a bit expensive but if it fits your budget then it's worth every penny.

    Absolutely loved this trip! Cesar was amazing! He was the perfect blend of tour guide and conservationist. He knew exactly how to treat and respect the land and animals while also giving us an up close and personal view into the environment. He had different fresh fruits and nuts for the different types of monkeys and was able to call them with their specific calls. It was a bit a rainy day so we didn’t get to close to many monkeys until it cleared but once it did they were eating out of our hands. Cesar also showed us iguanas, birds, nests, and bats. He was very professional and cared a lot about keeping the monkeys safe and healthy as evidenced by his lecturing of another boat full of tourists that were feeding the monkey crackers, which can hurt them due to them not being able to digest the processed carbs. I thought the trip was well worth every penny and it was by far the cheapest one out there.

    Beautiful islands and friendly people. Just need to be prepared for cold showers, limited food and drink options. If you want something other than, water, beer, or juice, you will need to bring it. Also bring a towel!

    The waterfall hike is a bit of a hike so you should be prepared for round trip 5 hours with mud and water.

    Very memorable trip and glad we roughed it for a few days to have this experience.

    This was an amazing tour!! Mario was our guide and he was awesome, went out of his way to make this experience memorable! We started with the hike and had a great guide who led us to the top. The hike is tough but so worth the view! The hiking guide had to take my hand a few times to help me up when I got tired but he was very encouraging and helped me reach the top! The hike down is easy and leads to a waterfall that you get a chance to swim in (although the water is a bit chilly). Then we went to the local town to have lunch. The restaurant we went to was very affordable and was situated next to the markets so we had a chance to shop around! The souvenirs here are very cheap so this is a great place to buy gifts to take home! We then went to the zoo and Mario bought a few bags of bananas so that we were able to feed most of the zoo animals! Feeding the Tapir was the coolest and I got some great photos! Mario guided us around the zoo, interacting with all of the animals to give us a cooler experience! We then ended the day at the thermal pools (the water is luke warm rather than hot). The pools felt amazing after a long morning of hiking! We were given mud masks to rub on our faces and arms as well! Overall, an amazing day!!

    This was a true Panamanian adventure!! Our guide Sorhay picked us up and took us on an adventure we will never forget! We were a family of 6 (our youngest is 20) with little to no ATV experience, but we are athletic and pretty fearless. I would not recommend this for young ones. This was an adrenaline packed no messing around 4 1/2 hours of mountain and rock climbing, river riding, jungle cutting ATV’ing. This is not for the weak, but if you are up for a good time I highly recommend because its like nothing you will ever experience. Sorhay was Amazing, she made sure we had a good time. We stopped on our way to our location for some Panamanian local produce and snacks. Afterwards we detoured to get some amazing churros and visit the famous home of Roberto Duran while spotting a three toed sloth to make our trip complete.

    Excellent experience and the best thing we've done near Panama City!

    Our guide Eustacio came to pick us up right from our apartment in Panama City and was brilliant! He spoke great English, was super friendly and was knowledgeable about the region and the wildlife.

    We saw three different types of monkeys, many different birds, and got to feed the capuchins a little from the boat. It was obvious that Eustacio respected the nature and wasn't trying to exploit the animals. When we got a little unlucky with the monkeys to begin with, we stayed out longer than planned and visited extra areas to make sure we got to see them.

    Very nice place for a get away from the everyday life. Nice and calm place. Not much to do on the Island except swimming, reading and playing games. It was a very very bumpy ride to the port. We got very delayed because of a storm which is fair, but no one told us anything about it so we just sat in the car and waited for 40 minutes. We then got to the Island and found out that water was not included in the price and we didn't know we had to bring our own water... So we had to pay 2USD $ for 0,5L bottle of water... For two people we ended up buying 10 bottles... The food was mediocre with little variety (rice, fried fish or chicken and some Vegetables) which wasn't great for Vegetarians... We met some lovely people on our trip and talked for hours after dinner and watched a storm in the distance with a lot of lighting. The people on the Islands doesn't really speak English so be aware of that.
