We are staying at Breezes and planning to hire a private driver to go see Monkey Island. Monkey Island is 2 hrs away from our hotel...that is 4 hrs of driving...we want our boys to experience the Panama Canal and figure this tour add more fun to it. But all the driving time plus expense, $150 rt for driver plus $50 each for tour, lunch, and tipping seems like a lot of money and time for a tour that seems to get mixed reviews. Any other suggestion for a tour with kids for Panama Canal? We have been to Costa Rica several times and have seen plenty of Howler Monkeys!
