  • 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.
