The Lodge was the highlight of our trip! It was such an amazing experience from start to finish. There is a great mix of adventure and relaxation it was such a wonderful time. The food was great and Captain Carl provides great entertainment either through stories or the information you learn on the tours during the day and night. If... More

Captain Carl is simply fantastic. Highly intelligent and knowledgeable on the wildlife, canal, and all of the nature. He is hilarious and keeps things entertaining the entire time. This was the best spent money ever. I would do this tour many times over and would endeavor to actually stay overnight on board next time. I could really go on and... More

My brother and I had a great time at the Jungle Lodge back in June/July. We stayed for two nights, and did numerous activities, including fishing, trekking, kayaking and searching for Caiman and Crocodiles after dark. We are in our late twenties and it was a great active few days in the Jungle. Carl was a great host and there... More

Words spoken by Capt Carl as we first entered the waters of Panama Canal. After just watching the humongous ships fit through the slender locks, it was such an experience to be in that same water. Capt Carl takes you on an entertaining (and educated) ride to the lodge, passing by the same humongous ships and other bits of century... More

Captain Carl is the best guide! We stayed the night with our teenaged sons and we all had a great time. There is a tour of the canal which was enjoyable and informative, a delicious lunch, swimming, kayaking, fishing, relaxation, a great dinner and a night safari. We slept really well in comfortable beds and the breakfast was yummy. We... More

My family of 5 did the day tour excursions 2 year ago, and we enjoyed the day so much that we decided to stay overnight in the lodge this trip. On the boat ride to the lodge, Captain Carl educated us on the Canal, and it's expansion. We also were able to stop at several islands to feed monkeys and... More

My 12-year old son and I spent nine wonderful days visiting Panama in June. We went all around various parts of Panama and even though every part of our stay was fantastic I have to say that I didn't experience that "aaahhhhhhhh" release until we got to Jungle Land Panama. The day tour was just awesome seeing the sites along... More

We just did the one day tour and stopped at the floating lodge for lunch, to change, and some swimming. But I wish we had known about it or we would have stayed there. They picked us up from our hotel, boated around the huge barges in Gamboa lake, stopped to see and feed different monkeys. Then after going to... More

We stayed at Jungleland Panama on May 26th for two nights. It was THE place to be for great adventure. We were picked up at our hotel as pre-arranged and transported to the Gamboa boat launch along with the other guests and day visitors. There we met Captain Carl who gave us an awesome canal tour on the way up... More

We are from Brisbane and stayed for a week on the Panama Floating Lodge so glad we did. Enjoyed the pristine, unspoiled surrounds, flora and fauna. We really loved hips of kayaking and swimming. The night excursions with the caimans were so so good. Great tucker and accommodation that made us feel we were in the rainforest. We had the... More
