Canal and wildlife tour


I am looking to book a day tour of the Canal's that also has a wildlife/jungle component.

Any recommendations on a good company that has something like this?

The best way to see the Canal is to go to Miraflores visitors' center. It is far more informative and you'll see more of the lock's operations than you can eve see from a transit or partial transit. You can get there and back by taxi. The companies offering full and partial transits do not include wildlife tours on the same trip, if at all.

The best way to see wildlife is to visit the zoo at Summit Park (part of Soberanía Nat'l Park). You'll see a lot of Panama's animals there. There are also tours of Monkey Island that run from Gamboa.
