The views from the aerial tram were awesome, very beautiful. However, outside of that it's not that great. Our guide wasn't super informative and could certainly have filled some of the time with other information. The animal life is hit or miss and ours was a big miss. I imagine this was due to the rain. I can't say that... More

This tour starts with a briefing on the rules and then off you go to board the tram. Guide stands in front and 4 people can sit in one tram . There are 18 trams in total. They have english speaking guides available who are just a wealth of information about the area. Tram will skim over the trees and... More

This was a nice way to see the rain forest from the top of the canopy. It was raining very heavily when we did it so the wildlife was not around. Our guide was very good and knowledgeable. We had a view of the canal and river for a few minutes before the clouds covered everything.

We didn't get to see much except for trees. The view at the top was great. Guide was very nice and gave us a lot of information.

The neat thing about the radio tower is that at its top, you are even with the top canopy layer. There is a unique perspective of the Forrest to experience, and also a good view of the canal and Chagras River. Technically, the tower is wheelchair accessible because it is all ramp and no stairs. But you will need a... More

This was good tour. It gets you out on the river and canal in a small boat. Then, there's an easy hike through the rainforest to see the remains of an old US WWII installation. Very interesting. And, on the way back, we stopped by "Monkey Island." Also fun.

My husband and I did the half-day fishing trip for $214 (includes tax) with our guide Marcus and had a marvelous time. We left at 9:00 a.m. and returned around 1:00 p.m Marcus was very friendly and knowledgeable. There are not many places where you are pretty much guaranteed to catch fish, speed past HUGE cargo ships and see monkeys... More
