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 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.

It would be redundant for me to gush about this place but no reviews before me exaggerate - it's that awesome. I mean if you object to compost toilets and no AC maybe it's not for you but we LOOOOOOVVVED spending the night here. So much better to spend the night than day trip and we took full advantage - guided kayak trip, nighttime boat trip, sunrise boat trip... it was AWESOME. Guides were great and we enjoyed Carl's wry humor and company. Good food too. Our 9 and 12 year old think it was the best thing they've done in their lives. Thanks, Jungle Land!!

I rarely write reviews but have to give Jungleland the highest rating possible. My fam of 5 (kids 13, 10 and 7) spent 24 hours here and it was in my kids words, 'the best day ever.' We fed monkeys and saw a mother and baby sloth on our boat ride to the houseboat, kayaked, and swam. My kids loved jumping off the boat into the lake, and jumped off a waterfall at the end of the hike. The nighttime boat tour was awesome - a big sky full of stars above us, and we held crocs and snakes and had a nice little bat hanging above my daughter's head on the boat for the ride. Our guides were so great - full of insight about the animals and birds we were seeing. My kids will be talking about this for a long time.
