What a great way to feel immersed in Panama. We did the overnight trip. Consider the trip luxurious camping. You stay on the houseboat with average size rooms, and comfortable beds. Nothing fancy and a chemical toilet in the back. The location is in a small cove hidded in Lake Gatun. Picked up at a small dock in Gamboa, you get to dodge huge container ships as you head out. On the way we spotted sloths and howler monkeys. At the housebout we ate a delicious chicken lunch with a tamale, beans, a rice dish with fruit and nuts, and fresh fruit. Onto the kayak to a short hike to jump in the waterfall. Back to the housebout where the rum, beer or wine come out. Either enjoy the hammock, the menagerie of animals on board, fish, swim or kayak until dinner. We swam, then caught fish for dinner. In an hour 4 of us had about 15 fish. Dinner was fresh fried fish, pork, local vegetables, and beans. I cleaned my plate. Then off for a night safari. Carl caught a Caimin for us to look at, we saw fireflies, and a sloth eating in the trees. Once back, we visited with the other guests and Carl on the veranda with a dozen hammocks, enjoying Rum and cola. We got up in the morning and Kayak'd around while breakfast was being prepared. Then it was back on the boat to the trip back to Gamboa. An incredible array of activities crammed into one day.
