I was really looking to experiencing this rain forest after reading about it. We were on a cruise of the Panama Canal and this was the port we stopped at the day after the canal. First of all you go on a 45 - 60 minute bus ride to get there. That wouldn't be so bad if most of the... More

The middle of the trip was interesting and informative, with a few extras to keep the rain forest itself a little above average to see. The down side is the trip to and from. It took 1 hr and 15 min each way to go about 10 miles across an extremely rough road in an unconfortable seat. I'm a little... More

After reading all the positive reviews of Veragua Rainforest, I was hoping this place would be a highlight of our cruise. Unfortunately, it was very disappointing. Had I never been to a rainforest before, I might have been really impressed with this place. Unfortunately, I have been to several other much more impressive rainforests in other countries. My main criticism... More

By all means if you have never been to a rain forest or will not be able to go to one with a large array of wildlife, visiting this one is wise simply for the lushness of the vegetation. This rain-forest is more like a visit to a zoo. You spend quite a bit of time looking for animals and... More

We learned a lot about the rain forest and how nature is in balance. we do not need to mess with it or fix it. Amazing tour. Guide Ken was extremely informative and answered all my questions.

The rainforest was beautiful. Of course, we got rained on. But we saw a sloth and a couple of beautifully colored frogs that were poisonous. Saw the most amazing butterfly that when it flapped its wings it alternated between purple and yellow!

We too visited from a cruise ship, this is a special place, our guide was very knowledgeable with good English. We viewed snakes (captive!), took a beautiful walk through the butterfly house, looked at frogs and toads, and were lucky enough to see several gorgeous wild sloths. The aerial tramway ride is stunning as you ride above the rainforest canopy.... More
