“Greatest Panama Attraction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2010

Sure, the Panama Canal is a wonder for the world to see, but this ecological experience I had with Gatun Eco Adventures was the funnest thing I did in Panama, and obviously one of my favorites. The zipline is an amazing experience that kept me wanting more and site itself where this is hosted is a beautiful native sanctuary that you cannot miss out on.

“Zip line canopy ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2010

I did their zip line when I was in Panama with an Overseas Adventure Travel group in June 2010. It was the highlight of my trip! Of course, going through the locks is why I came to Panama, but this was a thrill that I wasn't expecting. I felt they were very professional yet friendly and they seemed very safety conscious. Their equipment seemed to be in very good shape; of course, I realize it's all rather new. Would love to do it again.
