Very fun times at Jungle Land. The staff cater to you for everything from food to activities. Where else can you stay on a houseboat in the middle of the jungle, on Gatun Lake? My wife and I spent 2 nights there.

INNKEEPER’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2016

Thank you Captain Carl for hosting us on your floating lodge. The twenty four hours was filled with activities - kayaking & swimming, fishing, hiking, a night time ride down the river in search of alligators, star gazing and monkeys! Who would have thought that I'd be sharing peanuts with a Capuchin. The early morning with the birds, butterflies and... More

We were picked up early in the morning to start our 2-hour trek to the docks on the Panama Canal. Our tour guide was a wealth of information and pointed out various places of interest along the way and provided some general information about Panama. This made the bus ride pass by quite quickly. Once we reached the docks we... More

A local Panamanian resident recommended this tour. They were spot on. How many lifelong memories can you cram into one 24-hour period? My wife and I and three children (ages 7, 9, and 11) spent the day, and night, on this amazing houseboat and jungle tour. Our visit included a boat ride up Lake Gatun (part of the Panama Canal),...

Great experience all around with night time jungle fire, hiking in the jungle, kayaking, bathing and surprisingly good food. Also, if you're an overnighter, this is an all-inclusive thing so there's no meter running when you grab a beer, glass of wine, coke zero or whatever. It is not cheap, and as an overnighter you will perhaps feel a bit... More

If you're really want to experience Panama, go and stay at Jungle Land. Our visit included a cruise on the canal by an experienced guide. Nate was very knowledgable and fun.

Spending an evening at the Jungle Land floating lodge might very well have been our best experience in our ten-day Panama trip. From prompt hotel pickup to an amazingly engaging and fun guide in Captain Nathan, we (with a toddler) had an amazing journey to the lodge. Once there, the service was exquisite--great food, endless bar service and cheerful staff.... More
