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.

Best mojitos I’ve found in Panama City. Very reasonably priced rum and cheap buckets of beer. The live music was always good.

This casino is located on the bottom two floors of the Hilton Panama City. There are a few of the staff members who are very nice and accommodating, but most are not. The patrons can be sketchy and try to scam you so be cautious. You should be able to outsmart them though, as most of the locals not exactly the brightest. As far as the patrons and people go, remember, the only reason for all the money circulating in Panama is because of United States. We basically gave them the canal via treaty in 1999. However, on a more positive note the casino is nicely appointed and clean for the most part. There are several games to play and multiple penny slots if you’re not a serious gambler. The casino is open 24 hours which is a nice touch, especially if you’re staying at that Hilton. Another downfall is that there is only one bar and it is located on the second floor way in the back. Overall though, it’s worth betting a few dollars and socializing while checking out the place.

This Casino is At the Hilton Panama in Panama City Panama. I wish I had Never stepped foot in there. It looks like any other US casino. That is how they lure you in. Next they treat you like a VIP by offering you lots of free food and drinks that they bring throughout your play. I went on more than one occasion the first time they made the machine payout full screen pays ( Those familiar with bonus game penny slots will understand ) So it seemed I was doing well and may have left with a small amount of money. Then each time I came it didn't matter how hard I tried I loss more and more and more until I had loss $9,000. I write this so you won't suffer like I have. #Blessings

Casinos in Panama City charge a tax when you cash in your chips...5.5%. And, they charge a 2% service charge on top of that! My advice...don’t play at all!

We walked into the Casino in the middle of the afternoon. There were maybe 2 other guests in the entire Casino which is not that big to begin with. We live in Florida where the Seminole Indians run Casinos like ones you find in Vegas. Compared to them, this one was VERY disappointing. Jackpots were in the thousands of dollars. At home they run close to $1 million. The only "fun" machine we could find that we like is the Titanic which we play at home. Machines must be set for very low payouts. We lost our money quickly. We don't mind losing in the long run but at least let us win some along the way. Suggest you save your gambling money for another time as we were to two other Panama City casinos and felt the same about them.
