Monkey Island, Panama City
(3.4/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Monkey Island allows you to explore a jungle lake and get up close and personal with a wide variety of monkeys. The tours here explore Lake Gatun, stopping off at various spots to interact with four different species of monkeys. Experience the monkeys personally, as they climb on you and snatch food. See many other wild animals including crocodiles, toucans, sloths, iguanas, turtles, and numerous exotic birds. The tour also includes the chance to paddle to a natural spring swimming pool and fish for native fish in the lake. Tasty local Panamanian food is served on a banana leaf while on the tour.
