We are from the US and just moved to Panama City for business. We are looking to explore the area, and we want to feel a little less like a tourist and also find places to send guests. We were all set to go resort all inclusive, with the hour long tours when we found Jungle Land Panama! Kick back, laid back, hours of being on & in the water, up close to monkeys, birds, crocodiles, snake,fish and who knows what else!? Transportation from our apartment in the city was prompt & courteous, took us right to the dock where Captain Carl & crew met us and the other guests. Our ride included history,giant vessels,feeding monkeys, crocodiles, birds and more. Then we arrived at the houseboat and had a delicious lunch cooked to order...help yourself to beer, wine, rum, soft drinks etc...Next was kayaking! Two different directions to two different waterfalls and swimming holes...back to the houseboat to meet Boo and her friends! We opted for the overnight, and we loved the boat ride so much we took the ride to the dock & back...we went fishing! Our guide was great,..and we caught a few little bass, just enough to relax and again see turtles, birds & more baby crocks! Back for a cooked to order dinner and story telling with the Captain. We were offered a night boat tour, but declined. Soon after a few rums and tales, we went to our private room & bath for a solid nights sleep listening to the sounds of the rain forest!! In the morning, hot coffee & a fabulous hot breakfast, omelets, pancakes and more fruit that makes Panama famous! Back to the dock and we were returned to our apartment! Totally recommend!
