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.

Remember when opened some years ago, I refused to go because found it excessively expensive the fee of over $25,00 for an adult (almost the same cost for museums in Europe and much more extensive) but now after a few years and out with some friends saying that they dropped the entry costs, we decided have a go, OK let’s contribute to the local economy. But still I think that “discriminating” entry fees for foreigners and locals is not a thing to do if the country “wannabe” at the level of a 1st world nation. The colourful structure is eye-catching, better from a distance but under the roof, looking at all those concrete and steel (modern jungle resemblance?) well, they will have to keep a close maintenance program because here metals get oxidized pretty fast and some humidity stains are already in some areas... If have little time (and not into science/history) better don’t go, stay outside, have a picture of this architectural marvel and leave…. If have time and into science/history OK… at the beginning when saw those (probably life size) white plastic animal sculptures I said to myself oh no plastic, but those are depictions of extincted fauna that probably crossed the isthmus… prepare to read, read and read (because lots of information boards), it’s interesting but as wrote at the beginning, depends the visitor… The flora area outside is nice (direct interaction is always better) small; the aquarium is just OK (can’t be compare to the Georgia or the European ones). This building is now iconic among others works representing Panama (F&F tower, the Cathedral and the tower of Old Panama because of its historical importance, BBVA now stayed small)

The architecture its as interesting as the museum itself. Maybe more so. Frank Gehry, world renowned architect, designed a gem which conveys many images of plants and rainforest canopies. It's worth spending time just looking up as you tour the facility. To be honest - I thought the exhibits inside were under-done. There's just not that much to see. Not sure why because this area is believed to be one of the most bio-diverse on the planet...so there's no shortage of scientific information to impart to visitors. The exhibits miss the mark in my view. Nonetheless - I would recommend the museum as a worthwhile way to spend two hours.
