The communication was very good with the company, we received every information on time. The shuttle service was punctual, the bus was clean and modern. Our guide was well prepared, he had a lot of information on the Canal and the flora and fauna too. The floating house is amazing, it really is a special place. We chose the fishing opportunity after lunch (the other one is kayaking), which was a great experience. The guide didn't speak English, but helped in everything. We could have stayed longer, but I understand that the trip has a schedule.
I highly recommend this trip, I think it's a unique one around the Panama Canal.

We did the boat tour and then the afternoon at the Jungle Lodge. It was a cool spot to hang out for the afternoon. We had a good meal for lunch and all the soft drinks we wanted. Had fun getting to stand up paddle board for the first time also. The boat tour is also good. Lots of monkeys and cool to be out on the canal. Would def recommend! Our 4 and 6 year old had a blast!

OMG we had the best honeymoon Ever and we MUST give a huge thanks to Shane ( not Shawn lol) He was the best tour guide ever . So knowledgeable in ever area from the time we got on the speed boat until we got dropped back off after the excursion. Me and my husband knew not a lick of Spanish which was a plus having Shane there as our tour guide , the monkeys were adorable!!! And lets not forget the panamians that cooked us the wonderful meal ( chicken , rice , beef , plantains and unlimited drinks!!! We were truly shocked at the adventure we had , this was well worth the wait! from going across the canal being taught interesting facts , to visiting multiple islands feeding the monkey , to traveling in the jungle to the kayak where me and hubby took a flip upside down in the water ( lol ) this experience was truly once in a lifetime !!!! Thanks to the entire staff at Jungle Land.

We did this tour through Sunwing at our resort. This was the highlight of our trip! Took a boat ride through the panama canal, learning some very interesting facts. They got two different kinds of monkeys to come onto our boat that we got to feed. Then we traveled to the jungle boat and were fed lunch and a delicious fruity drink ($2). We were then given the option to go fishing, kayaking, swimming, or just hangout on the boat. I chose the kayaking and was very happy with my choice. Very beautiful scenery. We paddled back to a waterfall that people could jump off of. Highly Highly recommend this trip to anyone traveling to Panama!!!

We booked the all day tour that combined a boat ride on Gatun Lake through Monkey Island area and then on to the Anaconda property that floats on the water. Once there we were served a delicious lunch and beer and wine is also available for purchase. Then we were offered the opportunity to either swim or get onto kayaks and kayak to a waterfall where you could also swim. The staff is laid-back and very accommodating and the people on the tour were wonderful. There was also a large Boa constrictor that you could handle and take pictures with. Well worth the money and a full day of fun. We enjoyed it tremendously.
