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.

The monument was attractive and we learned a lot about its history. The stairs and walkway above offer great views of the city.

Nice plaza. Shout out to the French Canal builders. Good people watching. Can’t miss it while walking around Casco Viejo.

Combined with the walkway above, this monument at the tip of the Old Town peninsula is a great place for a relaxing stroll.

The warm lights cast upon this square at night give the whole ensemble a mirific glow. It is beautiful and ladden with monuments and history of Panama. Definitelly one spot to visit while in the city, and preferably in the evening.
