Monkey Island Tour from Panama City

171 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.

If you're going almost anywhere in the CBD, you'll end up on Balboa. Parts of it are quite attractive with stunning views of the skyline.

We walked over to Balboa Avenue excited to wander along and explore what appeared to be a lovely water-front major avenue. Shops! Restaurants! It looks amazing in the photographs. But we were very disappointed. As with much of Panama City - it looks way better from a distance. Know that the city is not very pedestrian friendly. Many downtown sidewalks are marked by ankle breaking holes, broken areas, and mismatched heights. One must be quite vigilant to walk the sidewalks even in the "nicer" areas. Crossing a street is often a very risky thing. There are few traffic light crossings and where there's no light but a "cars must stop" cross walk painted on the street...well, many drivers ignore those "must stop" crossings. Watch-out! Even when trying to cross a street filled with stopped cars, watch for the motor bikes roaring along in the gutter or between the stopped cars. Danger lurks everywhere. Once you make your way to Balboa Avenue - we were disappointed by few restaurants and uninteresting shops. In all - we were very disappointed and cannot recommend this area despite the lovely-appearing photographs.

We had two evening walks along this promenade. Anyone visiting Panama City should take the time to explore this area. Wonderful city views and plenty of vendors along the path, if you get thirsty.

If time allows you definitely get an hour walk to admire on one side the futuristic buildings of the new city and on the other get the taste of old in Casco Viejo. Best if you can do a double stroll as the day and the night view have each their charm. Now if you drive there it can get a bit crazy even with a GPS on as the street is split in individual one-ways and in case you need to return there are only dedicated turns where you can do that. Also during big events like the Carnival it gets partially closed . Normally they would close the part towards Casco Viejo so you will need a big detour on a parallel street to get back on the main avenue. We experienced such issue during last Carnival and we had to drive parallel up to Calle 42 to be able to past from south to north back into the Avenue.
