We did the 1/2 day Panama Canal and Monkey Island tour. It was absolutely amazing!! It was great to learn so much from our guide Alex!! It was so awesome to have the monkeys come onto the boat and clean themselves with the limes and eat the fruit that the captain of the boat provides!! Absolutely breathtaking!!!!

We went to Lake Bayano for a cave tour - the guides, Alex & Alex, were great. They had so much interesting information about Panamanian culture and history, and stopped along the way so that we could see a sloth and howler monkeys. The cave was super fun - dodging bats, walking/wading past beautiful limestone formations and ending up at... More

Luis Calvo set up the trip for us. We criss-crossed the country, and other than in Panama City, we stayed in lovely up-and-coming little hotels and got a good immersion in local life all over the country. Sometimes he took us to wonderful, tiny little restaurants. At one of them there were two choices -- the proprietor said, "I have... More

Alex picked us up at our hotel right on time and we headed out of the city with 6 other people. We stopped for a coffee and bathroom break, which was much appreciated! We also stopped along the way to check out some tree sloths. We crossed a really large lake in a boat that was waiting for us in... More

Alex picked us up from our Panama City hotel and drove us a long way to Lake Bayano for a cave tour. He was so personable and easy to talk to. We felt so safe with him and Manuel-especially when they very competently led us through the cave which at times had to be navigated by swimming. I liked the... More

We really enjoyed our guide, Alex. He was incredibly knowledgeable and easy going. He even dropped us off at the Locks at the end of the tour in order to save us some travel time, which was great because we only had one day in Panama! We saw a lot of interesting animals and had an enjoyable walk through the... More

I would highly recommend doing this hike with Xplora Panama Day Tours. The hike is 3 hours from panama city and takes 1-1.5 hours each way. the hike is intense, so you should be in decent shape and bring lots of water. The waterfall at the end is beathtaking.

Thank you for the review. Indeed, for this tour you need to be used to some level of physical activity but the waterfall and what you see along the way are both breathtaking! Thank you! More

Our guide Alex did a wonderful job giving us a tour of pristine untouched rainforest in eastern Panama. We saw so many species of plants, frogs, lizards, birds and insects. Alex went out of his way to make us comfortable and entertained and was very knowledgeable about the tour he was giving. Afterward he helped us get on to our... More

We had a great time with Alex on the Lake Bayano Cave tour. His passion for wildlife biology and conservation really helped us get excited about a place we knew little about. After the tour, the local people living on the lake provided a delicious Tilapia lunch. We saw several monkeys, a sloth, toads, poison arrow frogs, and caymans. We... More
