Monkey island tour

We will be at the Gamboa Rainforest resort for only 2 nights and was wondering how often this tour runs and how quickly it fills up.

Monkey island is a popular activity at Gamboa, weekends are by far the busiest, so during the week is usually a better option and normally 2 days in advance to book is recommended, they operate a premium time of 7.45am, then 10:15; 11:45; 1:15; 2;45; 4:00 Every day. often best to avoid the midday tour in my experience, the 4pm one is a popular.

Have Fun !!

The premium time of 7.45am, does that mean it is the busiest or does it cost extra?

I definitely recommend taking an earlier AM tour, less chance of rain which often comes in the afternoon (if it is not one of those downpour all day rains). Gamboa is the rain forest after all.

The early morning tour is I believe charged at a higher rate, the normal cost is $35 +7% Tax per person, its advisable to avoid the midday tours due to the heat, early morning or late afternoon are usually better for seeing the wildlife.
