Monkey Island Tour from Panama City

172 reviews
Monkey Island lies on Gatun Lake, along the Panama Canal, and is renowned for its large population of monkeys, along with other wildlife. On this tour, set sail on a scenic riverboat cruise around the lake and the Chagres River; look out for wildlife such as slothes, iguanas, and crocodiles; and spot four different types of monkey on the island—mantled howler, white-faced capuchin, Geoffroy’s tamarin, and lemurine owl monkeys.

This tiny museum in the heart of the old quarter is a must see on you trip to Panama. It shows the history of the art craft called Mola, created by the indigenous tribes of Guna Yala, formerly San Blas. They display an amazing collection of these works of art and have several interactive displays for the kids to enjoy. Do go and visit this gem, recently opened in Panama City.

This museum was a great find. I can’t believe it’s free. We were lucky enough to have Leonardo as our docent. He knew every aspect of the history of molas and did a great job conveying their meanings and purpose. We learned about the Guna people and saw the progression of Mola through the years. Don’t miss it!

The museum is brand new. Well designed and planned. Very interesting and the exhibition is magnificent. Learned a lot about the history of the Kuna people and the Molas they create. It is appropriate for all ages. The staff we met was very friendly and we felt the warm welcome she gave us. Highly recommended to visit in Panama City.

It is the first time that as panamanian I learn what is behind molas. This museum explains details, including dates, pictures, among others that make us value, reflect and love them. Indeed, it is a short visit, but worthy. Everything was clear enough to be informed. There are guides to help you, and the interactive area was stunning. It is completely free, and there are clean toilettes. It is a place that a panamanian must visit, as well as foreign people.

This museum is very well-done. It is located in the heart of Casco Viejo and best of all it is FREE!!! The museum does a great job of telling the story of the Kuna Indians and the very special handicraft they are known for - the Mola. The museum also has an amazing collection of Molas to admire. It is a small museum and does not take a long time to walk through but is totally worth visiting. Afterwards take a walk to the Bobedas and see what the Kuna Indians are selling. You might find the perfect souvenir to take home to remember your trip to Panama.
