  • We have migrated last week on the pipeline road and it was real. At the beginning, it is still a wider gravel road on which from time to driving a car to the rainforest Discovery Center. Later however it is a trail and you are pretty much alone. We were in the morning against 7 there and saw many sweet Kapuzineräffchen, howler monkeys, sloths, toucans and some other colourful birds and butterflies. We went there on foot from the Gamboa rainforest resort (hotel). Although tours are offered, or take a taxi. The bus stops themselves only in the village of Gamboa. Tip: In Gamboa's is a small mini market, to buy food. It is not easy to find but drawn in Google maps and friendly local residents are happy to help. Occasionally, a parking attendant at the entrance of the pipeline road, the 5 is probably $ is required. With us no one was found. We weren't in the Discovery Center. Please respect the environment, remains on the path and leave no waste!

  • The boat ride on the Gatun was great. Was able to see Cappuccin monkeys and more. Great guide too. I would recommend the resort.
  • Amazing experience, I had just saw things like this in TV only. Be there and doing in person is breathtaking. Wonderful to see the wild animals in their home
  • Big and beautiful. Meet indigenous folks. Eat real food.
  • If you like Planet Earth or NatGeo, you'll probably enjoy this park. I'd recommend going really early in the morning when everything is still active. We saw a variety of monkeys, birds, amphibians, and insects. Bring binoculars, climb up the tower and get a view of the canopy and all the birds flying around.
  • Nice views, nice service and you can take lunch too.
