We had a fun day out, but we almost didn't make it! We'd booked by phone with Captain Carl, but he had forgotten about us. Luckily another group were being picked up by Jungleland from the same place, or otherwise we would have been left standing on the dock. We saw quite a few monkeys, met Captain Carl's pet boa...

Capt Carl is very knowledgeable and we had a great time on his tour. What we really appreciated about him was that he did what he could in order for us to have a great experience. My husband and I are older and we do not kayak. So he took us in an electric canoe so we could go to... More

My husband and I booked an early morning kayaking trip that was paid for and confirmed. We arrived at the boat dock on time, Jungleland was no where to be found. They showed up 10 minutes late. We got on board to be taken to the floating house, instead our guide took us to a fishing spot. After some communication... More

Our reservation girl is new and she accidentally informed the lodge team that the guests were fishing. The boat operator was confused when the guests told him they didnt want to fish but kayak. Since he had driven them to the fishing grounds time was lost while traveling to the lodge. Linsey and Nate communicated with me once they realized... More

It was OK, but that's it. If you have done these kind of trips before you will feel that this day is a bit artificial. The staff at Jungle Land was very nice and for the children it was fun. Warning: You don't get any water until you arrive to Jungle land. That could mean 3 hours if your pick... More

Booked the day tour with Panama Unlimited (because I arranged my transport needs with them.) Capt. Carl narrated essential information about the canal, jungle, flora and fauna. House boat in decent shape, very friendly workers. While most people went kayaking, I alone opted fishing with a local guide. Need sunscreen! Lunch was delicious, considering it was prepared in a remote... More

We found Jungle Land Panama through Trip Advisor and are so happy we booked a tour with them! As Captain Carl mentioned to us during our stay, you must come to this tour with both a sense of adventure and a sense of humor. This trip may not be for everyone, but our group had an amazing time. Captain Carl... More

My daughter and I took this tour and it was the best thing we did. We picked this instead of going thru the Gamboa Rainforest Hotel for our tour. Even the locals were telling us we made the right choice. Hands down worth every penny. Tour guide has a lot of information and speaks both English and Spanish fluently

We took a trip with "Captain Carl" and the Jungle Land Tours in December 2015, with two small children (3+ and 4+ years old). The trip could not have been better! Loved it! - enjoying a truly rewarding day with your family? CHECK - seeing your kids feed two different species of monkeys, by hand? CHECK - jumping off a... More
