“Use this company. The guide made really great. My two teen boys really enjoyed the monkeys and the village. The guide spotted birds, butterflies, and monkeys as we drove down the road. He even stopped and let us get out and look. Bring water and a snack. The guide told us to and it was needed. The guide even had bug spray for us.”

“Our tour guide Jeff was outstanding. He was very knowledgeable and personable. I would highly recommend this trip to everybody! And there was a chance to feed monkeys!!!!”

It’s time to wave farewell to Panama City and get out into nature! Breathe in the fresh air of parks, islands, rainforests, and rural villages. This Panama City jungle tour will turn its back on bustling city life and welcome the rainforest in with open arms – come along for the ride!

You’ll be picked up from the American Trade Hotel in the historic district, and the first part of this Panama City wildlife tour will take you past Panama Canal’s famous Culebra Cut and towards Soberania National Park, Lake Gatun, and the Chagres River.

Known for its huge variety of birds (the Audubon Society's annual bird count once spotted over 500 species in 24 hours!), Soberania National Park is full of wildlife and is a wonderful place to watch for monkeys, sloths, eagles, and plenty more. There’s no denying that this spot in the Panama jungle really is the jackpot for animal lovers. You’ll also catch a boat out to Monkey Island – doesn’t take a genius to guess what you’ll find here! Keep your eyes peeled to spot a number of different species of monkey.

Next, you will continue your tour up the Chagres River to an authentic Indian village. This will be an opportunity for you to get in touch with the local community, and learn all about their culture, customs, history, and more. As part of the visit, you’ll take a short hike along the trails through the rainforest to learn about how the local plants are used for medicinal purposes. With your local guide by your side through this adventure, you’ll learn plenty about the culture around you.

After your Panama jungle experience of a life time, you’ll head back into the city (perhaps a little begrudgingly…) where your local guide will drop you back off at the American Trade Hotel.  

Note: Due to the rainy season in Panama, we are unable to reach the Indian Village for the tour Panama City Jungle Experience. We would like to inform you that we can offer the passengers a nice walk in the jungle as asubstitute, this will be effective from 24th Oct to 20th Dec 2016.
