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.

Great view at the mirador just off the road. A couple of KMs up the road is the entrance to the Sender La Cruz. Based on the reviews i was expecting something more difficult, but it wasnt far or difficult. Its rustic, so it was a bit muddy and slippery, so i wouldnt recommend it for older people or ones that have difficulty with balance. But for avid hikers it should be a breeze. Took about 40 minutes up, and another half hour back. Beautiful views. Great spot for selfies, and apparently for locals looking to make out. Best of all it was free! You can park right there and just walk right up, no problem! Unfortunately we didnt have time to explore the rest of the park. But i would go back again!

This was quite an experience. We hiked with some friends and wanted to go up to the cross for the views. Wandered on some other trails and ran across the park patrol. They were nice enough to not only show us the way but hiked with us! Trails are great. Pretty steep as you get closer. Gets difficult at the top but worth the views.

If you are driving on your own to the beach hotels in the Panamanian Pacific, I do suggest you take a quick detour to this National Park, there is photo stop within 15-20 mins from the Panamerican Road, worth the visit. If you are adventurous enough and better if you have a GPS navigator, you could continue straight and rejoin the Panamerican Road further west for resuming your trip, its a nice ride going through Cerro Campana.

This hike is one of the most difficult we have done in Panama. Sendero La Cruz will take about 3 hours including the return. Some of the areas are muddy even during summer (dry) season. The view from the top at the Cross is worth the effort. Very popular trail, but difficult as mentioned.

Exit Right from the Pan American at the top of the pass where there is signage. Wazes will also direct you. The booth to pay the National Park Fee is on the way up on the mountain to the trail start. It is a relatively easy hike. There are really no signs etc, but it is a loop so hard to get lost! If you are a lucky - you will meet a local finca (farm) owner who will show you his crops and around the trail. Wear good runners/hiking boots - the trail can be quite slippery. Peaceful and serene. Neat old ruins you can explore. The views are wonderful on a clear day. Wonderful trees, plants, small little creatures. Great for a morning or afternoon outing.
