We booked this tour after going to see the Canal Lock. Jeeps took us up the mountain for breathtaking vistas, and Sloths! We zip lined for about an hour. Guides were delightful. Took the boat tour on Lake Gatun Following this excursion. Also very nice after a hot day at the Canal.

The company is now called Gatun Adventura in Colon - just down the street from Melia Hotel.The zipline takes you right over Gatun Lake--howler monkeys in the trees, etc... Our three teenagers had a fantastic time! Call Antonilo if you want more information 6785-0129

We got to take a boat ride on the lake, and it was wonderful. We got to see a sloth, a toucan and monkeys! Absolutely breathtaking.

I did their zip line when I was in Panama with an Overseas Adventure Travel group in June 2010. It was the highlight of my trip! Of course, going through the locks is why I came to Panama, but this was a thrill that I wasn't expecting. I felt they were very professional yet friendly and they seemed very safety... More
