Our floating lodge is the most unique all inclusive in Panama. A stay with us includes all meals, beverages, touring, and activities on the lake. Activities include swimming, fishing, kayaking, Stand-up-Paddling and hiking, .. or you can just relax in the hammock lounge. The lodge is anchored in a secluded cove of Gatun Lake of the Panama Canal. We are surrounded on all sides by a tropical forest teaming with exotic birds, plants, and animals. Huge ocean going ships transit the canal not far away. Come live a true adventure in the cross roads of the world.

We stayed for 2 nights. The boat ride from Panama City to the lodge included a few stops to experience monkeys. Very fun. The lodge had delicious food. At night, we went on a boat safari and saw all kinds of animals - including our guide catching a crocodile and a cayman with his bare hands! In the morning we went bird watching and hiking. The bed was very comfortable. Our room had a porch with a hammock, where I spent an afternoon reading.

Spent one night and loved it. They arranged a pick-up in Panama City with transport to the boat in Gamboa that runs up the canal to Gatun Lake where the hotel is anchored in one of the lake's fingers. Our room had a comfortable king bed, our own balcony with chairs and a hammock, a fan (no A/C of course)... Bathroom has running water but a privy like toilet... The hotel is floating a a lake, so it's very eco-oriented, though I wonder why no solar. The meals were quite good and included, as is all alcohol and other drinks, and use of kayaks. The staff were from France and New Zealand and super cool. The night we stayed there were five or six people from Holland and three from Canada... Everyone tends to socialize. Very dark sky for stars, and some organized events... A night cruise to find crocodiles and K got to hold an 18 inch three year old. It is just an amazing and fun place...

We had an amazing day with family and friends! A completely exotic trip at 30min from town, in the middle of nowhere surrounded by nature and animals. A marvelous and funny way to see a new face of Panama! I would totally recommend it as well to foreigners as to Panamanians.

5 of us took the Jungle Boat tour from Jungle Panama, aka Gatun Explorer. The pick up time was right on. The boat driver was very good. We started at Gamboa Rainforests Resort, a short walk from the marina where we got picked up. Our guide unfortunately, was only 2 weeks into the job, and knew poor English, and was not informative at all. The boat ride to the floating lodge was very uninformative. As is many tours in Panama, the experience totally depends on the guide. Ours was poor. The lunch at the floating lodge was wonderful. One of us fished, and 4 kayaked. It was pouring rain, but both were fun. Caught two tiger fish, and two peacock bass, all small. Very touristy, with many boats doing the same thing as us, with a line up at monkey island. So no Indiana Jones experience here, lots of tourists, and we were in the slow season!!! Overall ok, but would not do again.

Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate all the comments as they help us to improve in the different areas of our operational journey. Currently, we are training new team members and it is unfortunate what you describe, please be sure we will take the necessary corrections to amend this so it would not happen again. What happens in Gatun Lake and Monkey Island with the numerous boats is out of our control, despite this, we try our best to make our guests live the experience and proximity with at least one type of monkey near that zone and the floating lodge zone.
