I really loved this day that I spent with Jungle Land Panama. Captain Carl, knows the right spots where you can appreciate great fauna and flora around the Canal. Besides that we had a great panamanian meal and made a kayak trip to a beautiful waterfall nearby. Totally worth it. Day excursion totally recommended for thise who are in Panama... More

We saved this tour for our 2nd last day in Panama. It was great to have such an exciting trip to end our vacation. Captain Carl is hilarious! The tour included a stop at Monkey Island, where the monkeys come right up and climb on the roof of the boat. Captain Carl gave us peanuts for the monkeys and one... More

We booked the Jungleland tour on the recommendation of a couple on our cruise who had done the tour the week before. We were picked up right on time at Gamboa Resort Marina by a snappish person we later learned was Carl. Carl was going to town that day, so we had a different guide. The guide spoke both English...

Well now my feelings are hurt. Im sorry that we didnt have a chance to get to know each other better. The good news is that this is not a one man show. The crew does take pride in what they do and it shows. There was no excuse for the fishing gear to not function. We have over 20... More

From the moment we received the Jungleland confirmation email from Captain Carl, we knew we were going to be in for a lively trip, and the good Captain did not disappoint. His guided Jungle Land tour took us to places we would not have otherwise been able to visit and allowed us to see sights we would not have otherwise... More

My 12 year old daughter and I went to the Lodge in July, 2014. After being picked up at 9 at our hotel in Panama City (so convenient and easy), we picked up two other families and drove by the Canal on our way to the dock. Captain Carl met us there. He is fun, knowledgeable and a great grill... More

What a great day we had on the Jungle Boat Tour with Captain Carl. We were picked up at our hotel and taken to the dock where Carl met us on the Jungle boat. Carl is a great guide; very knowledgable, warm and funny. Carl talked about the different machinery used to build and expand the canal, that you will... More

This was a fun day out for our family of 2 adults and a 10 year old (who loved the opportunity to jump from the 2nd floor of the boat into the water). Food and service were OK (nothing special). Kayaking was an adventure - glad we were dressed appropriately. Although we enjoyed seeing the wildlife, we were uncomfortable with... More

They pick you up at the hotel around 8 and drive you to docks to get on a boat that looks like it a Disney Jungle ride boat. very comfortable and dry...The captain is very knowledgeable about the canal, its history and its wildlife. Once you reach your destination...a floating hotel...you are served an excellent lunch...afterwards we could either kayak... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip; it was a beautiful full day tour with plenty of information on the canal as well as the people and animals of Panama. After an hour plus tour through the waterways, interacting with and feeding capuchins, we arrived at the house boat for a fabulous local lunch. We then kayaked through... More
