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 museum is currently hosting an exhibition of works entitled 'Una Invasión in 4 Tiempos/An Invasion in 4 Tenses' marking the 30th anniversary of the US invasion of Panama in 1989. Many of the pieces from the 'ManiObras/MANeuvers' series by local artist Isabel de Obaldía, inspired by the events preceding, during and following the invasion, have pride of place; I was particularly taken with her painting 'Desterrado/Exiled'. The video art by Donna Conlon and Jonathan Harker also engaged me, which such installations rarely do. We were welcomed on arrival by a very friendly member of staff with excellent English who gave us a rundown of the exhibition and informed us that admission was free but that donations were welcome. Needless to say we popped some dollars in the box before we left. The museum is small and manageable: we spent just over an hour exploring its spaces. Since it is neither downtown nor in Casco Antiguo, we decided the easiest way to get to and from it would be by Uber.

King's College, The British School of Panama visited the MAC as a specialised art trip for the whole of our secondary school, spanning the length of a week. The museum allowed the students to experience a wide variation of mixed media art works from local and international artists. The museum staff were very friendly and offered the students a guided tour, with personalised activities for each year group. As an English speaking teacher, who speaks very little Spanish, the Museum's management were very accommodating and easy to communicate with. I would recommend this museum for any educational or cultural trip and we look forward to collaborating with this small but ,'not to be missed' museum in the future.Thank you for having us!

My wife and I decided to spend our honeymoon in Panama City, and after visiting the Canal, touring Casco Viejo and spending a weekend at Bocas del Toro, we felt like seeing some of the local art. After a short search, we found out that the only museum of art in Panama is MAC (The Museum of Contemporary Art). Upon our arrival we were greeted by an extremely helpful staff member who gave us our own private tour of the exhibition that was currently showing. Her explanations were thorough and she was very agreeable and open to our questions. It´s a relatively small museum, but the currently showing exhibition, which constantly changes, gave us a good overview of what is done locally. My wife and I spent a lovely evening; additionally, entry is completely free! (A 5$ donation is suggested at the entrance, but it is optional.) Wifi is free, coffee complementary and they offer local Panamanian snacks in their rest area. We just came back to Minnesota, and we can both agree that our honeymoon would have felt incomplete without that stop. Keep it up MAC!
