Had a wonderful day, perfect for kids and grande parents. Everyone caught lots, saw monkeys, caymen, and all kinds of wild life. Our second trip with these guys and we’d go again!

Rich, Jorge and Elio made our day magical. We asked for the moon and they delivered the universe. Feeding the monkeys for me, stellar peacock bass for my husband and finished with a passionate tour of the canal. This is the way to do Panama.
