My family and I took the Canal and jungle tour which featured a trip down part of the Panama Canal, a visit with the monkeys and activities with lunch at the floating hotel. We had a fantastic tour guide, Christobel, (?spelling), who gave us a great drive and tour. Also there was a nice young man that was there for... More

Captain Carl is very entertaining and knowledgeable. He and his staff worked hard to tell us about the canal, the expansion of the canal, and the jungle wildlife. He made sure we saw all 3 species of monkeys with Capuchins and Mono Titis coming right onto the boat. We ate an excellent lunch on his "house boat" and then there... More

Had six of us representing six different countries and could only do this on a Saturday but this was not a regular schedule for them. However, they made special arrangements to accommodate us. Everything was great, communication, driver of the van, Capt. Carl, monkeys, lunch on the house boat, kayaking, swimming, huge vessels in the canal. If you have the... More

After spending 10 days doing extensive birding and a couple days in the hot city, I was just looking to get out on Gatun Lake. City hotel pickup was right on time and after picking up a few more, were on our way to the docks, about an hour drive. Captain Carl has completely channeled Kurt Russell's Captain Ron character...

Once we got out on the lake, it was awesome - cargo ships, monkeys, lunch on a boat house, kayaking, etc... It was so cool. However, they really need to upgrade/maintain their boats and vans. Our boat's motor broke down and once Captain Carl got it working, we had to go back to the dock and wait for over an... More

We do maintain our boats the best we can but break downs will happen. A factory authorized mechanic had worked on the motor the day before and had said all was well. As soon as I crossed the canal the problem returned. I immediately contacted the lodge for another boat. With the low lake conditions this took 45 minutes to... More

We had a terrific day out on the canal, in and about the various inlets and islands. Had a great bus ride to the launching pier on the Gatun Lake. Took a tour boat up the canal/ Gatun Lake with a huge ocean going vessels looming over us. Travelled off the canal down a side river to a house boat.... More

This was a great canal trip that opened my eyes to a whole new world. We started on an informative boat ride around the canal. Our captain Karl was very knowledgable about the Inner workings of the canal system. While riding along, he also was able to point out various plant life and wildlife. At one point he slowed the...

We used Jungle Land Panama for transportation to and from the airport plus a high quality excursion on Gatun Lake. On all three occasions the transportation was early or exactly on time. The vehicles are air conditioned, clean, and well kept. The drivers are very professional. The Gatun Lake excursion is a bit more rough, but still safe and entertaining.... More

This is an excursion you DO NOT want to miss!! Captain Carl is very knowledgeable and makes the experience memorable. He tells you a lot about the canal, the animals that inhabit the canal, and Panama in general. He's very funny but also keeps an eye out for his customers, making sure they are safe and enjoying the ride. Experiencing... More
