Trust me there are a handful monkeys and you are very lucky if you see a couple. I would not go back as the monkeys are all gone somewhere else. The tour is a disappointment.

the monkeys have left this island, so you would not specifically see them on this island. however if you take the river tour, you get to see some monkeys, and birds.

Definitely worth a visit on a Lake Gatun boat trip - but be forewarned that due to the Canal expansion, the monkeys are moving father away from the waterway.

Go to the Gamboa Rain Resort and take the tour. We saw Howler and Capuchin monkeys up close. We also saw Iguanas, hawks, birds, and crocs.
