Soberania National Park, Monkey Island and Indian Village from Panama City
From $105.00
Overview
Escape the metropolitan madness of Panama City on an exhilarating full-day tour to Soberania National Park and Monkey Island, led by a professional guide. Marvel at a fascinating tableaux of native wildlife as you explore lush jungle replete with thousands of exotic bird species. Climb aboard a boat destined for Monkey Island, a verdant enclave home to many different monkey species, and then visit an authentic Indian village to learn about the area’s rich local culture. Enrich your cultural knowledge on this exhilarating Central American excursion.
What to Expect
It’s time to wave farewell to Panama City and get out into nature! Breathe in the fresh air of parks, islands, rainforests, and rural villages. This Panama City jungle tour will turn its back on bustling city life and welcome the rainforest in with open arms – come along for the ride!

You’ll be picked up from the American Trade Hotel in the historic district, and the first part of this Panama City wildlife tour will take you past Panama Canal’s famous Culebra Cut and towards Soberania National Park, Lake Gatun, and the Chagres River.

Known for its huge variety of birds (the Audubon Society's annual bird count once spotted over 500 species in 24 hours!), Soberania National Park is full of wildlife and is a wonderful place to watch for monkeys, sloths, eagles, and plenty more. There’s no denying that this spot in the Panama jungle really is the jackpot for animal lovers. You’ll also catch a boat out to Monkey Island – doesn’t take a genius to guess what you’ll find here! Keep your eyes peeled to spot a number of different species of monkey.

Next, you will continue your tour up the Chagres River to an authentic Indian village. This will be an opportunity for you to get in touch with the local community, and learn all about their culture, customs, history, and more. As part of the visit, you’ll take a short hike along the trails through the rainforest to learn about how the local plants are used for medicinal purposes. With your local guide by your side through this adventure, you’ll learn plenty about the culture around you.

After your Panama jungle experience of a life time, you’ll head back into the city (perhaps a little begrudgingly…) where your local guide will drop you back off at the American Trade Hotel.

During the rainy season in Panama, we are unable to reach the Indian Village for the Panama City Jungle Experience. However, we can offer travelers a nice walk in the jungle as a substitute. This alternate option will be effective from early October to late December.

We had Gonzo as a guide and he was excellent. He was witty without being a comedian, informative without being a lecturer. His English is better than most Americans. His trip was the best of all our tours in Panama. The only negative was his...More
