Itinerary

 

Enjoy the unique opportunity to be inside the Panama Canal Watershed as you travel to the Gatun Lake eco-cruise and visit the Monkey Islands, where you can see several species of monkeys and lush natural landscapes.


Start with an  afternoon pickup at your city hotel  and get ready to see more species of animals. Hop aboard a high-speed motorboat and marvel at the breathtaking flora and fauna surrounding Gatun Lake.


The lake is one of the sets of locks in the Panama Canal, on the Pacific side. There, you will have an ecological experience in the region, where you can sail by the lake and see animals and the surrounding forest.


Enjoy stops at Monkey Island, home to several species of monkeys that are native to Central America. Monkey Island boasts an incredible amount of wildlife. Stay on the lookout for capuchin monkeys, Geoffroy's tamarin and howler, and other species.


If you are lucky, come close to some of the large ships that transit the canal daily.


We will get back to the city around 4:45 pm

It is lovely to step off a long flight and have someone inside the airport ready to pick you up. Levy was excellent; the directions were clear on where he would meet us. He communicated by WhatsApp to let us know he was there. He held a sign with our names on it. He was a safe driver and told us a little about the city as we drove. If you want to travel stress-free, then Levy and his team are the folks to call. The price was reasonable and this is 100% better than trying to take a Taxi or Uber. Don't make your arrival more complicated or stressful, ask for Levy he is the best.

We had a wonderful day with a super nice driver who accompanied us in a competent and friendly manner. The whole process, from booking to drop-off at the hotel, was sensational. We can recommend this organisation completely and without hesitation. We travelled as a family (2 adults and 1 child).

This was a trip that I had planned on doing as soon as I knew I was going to Panama. I cannot begin to put into words how amazing it was. Our tour guide was phenomenal in providing us with as much information upfront. Once we arrived at the Rivers edge we were met by two members of the Embera tribe who provided us life jackets and took us down the river for about 30 minutes. The rainforest was beautiful, clean, quiet, and full of so many unknowns. Upon our arrival to the village, we were met by some women and children who were as curious about us as we were about them. Once in the village after a short walk, we were given a proper Embera introduction, traditional dancing and best of all our lunch. We ate fresh tilapia, plantains, and fresh fruit. It was the most delicious meal I ate during my entire trip to Panama. We were able to engage with the children of the village and purchase some authentic trinkets. At the end of the trip, we had an opportunity to swim in the clearest water I have seen and also witness the children playing in their "backyard" jumping off the cliff into the water. I highly recommend this trip and next time will do a night at the village that is also offered.
