We wanted a jungle feeling stay: Not so Traffic noise from the freeway below is loud. Signage to the property is hard to see (It does not help to get no answer from multiple calls), Once in the property, we felt marooned behind a locked gate. Did not like that we could not go outside if we wanted to try... More

If you want to stay at a very simple but for Panama very expensive b & b net to the highway then this is a solution. The owner only wants to get your money by tours and expensive drinks and does not allow you to bring your own drinks to your cabine. The garden is a mess and the monkeys... More

Wouaouh!!! I don't know what's going on, but writing something like that is very not constructive for the other guest, falsehood never serve nobody, I don't know why you are so bad to tell first the garden is mess when every body said is a paradise, why you write the monkeys are in the cage when they are 2000 M2...

The focus of our trip to Panama was 3 weeks of Spanish immersion school for the family in Boquete and Boca del Toro. My husband had to leave earlier, and I booked our final night before flying out of Panama City with my teenage boys at the Monkey Lodge. Our three weeks had been very full of action, study, decisions,... More

We stayed here previously 2 years ago. The thing that has changed is that sadly but probably inevitably the monkeys no longer roam free. It is a lovely oasis on a wooded hill, close to the road network, so you hear the traffic quite often, but it is a lovely setting and there's quite a bit of birdlife. The pool... More

During the summer of 2013 while in Panama, we went on the Monkey Lodge Canal Tour. It was great!. We enjoyed the boat ride and monkey island. Just before pushing away, we saw a small BOA resting in a tree (that was cool). The short hike was enjoyed by all who ventured off the boat. My child was amazed by... More

My family and I did the Canal Tour in July 2013. We had a great time feeding the monkeys, hiking through the jungle and visiting an old army outpost, and kayaking into a more remote area of the canal where we got to see a beautiful waterfall. If you enjoy a tour that's a little different than the typical tourist... More

My husband and I live in Panama and spent a weekend away from home. It was like finding a sweet hidden place for a lovely relaxing weekend.

In all my years of family travels to central america, this was the most uncomfortable place to stay and is way overpriced for what is offered. This place is uphill from the midst of the slums in the area. I have had less mosquito bites in the rain forest than I did in the room. I would have preferred if... More
