Brace yourselves. Compost toilets, with gerbil litter to beat back the "aroma." Sunset mosquitoes, repelled, almost, by the whir of fans and threat of compulsory superstrong bug spray. Furnishings? Hammocks. Plastic chairs. Shower temperature: see, "temperature of lake water." You good so far? Then this is absolutely the place for you. As Captain Carl says, "This place isn't for everyone."...

If you're considering going to Jungleland, do yourself a favor and book it now! I love traveling and consider this one of the highlights of anywhere I've been. If you can only fit it the day trip, then do that, but I would treat yourself to staying over night and having the full experience, which includes seeing some animals that...

The only complaint I would have about this place is that it was hard to find the dock where the boat leaves from. We went to 2 other docks before finding the right one, so really check the directions. You can't see the boats or dock from the road, all you see is the parking lot at the top. If...

Our family of four visited Jungle Land Panama in August of 2015. We knew it was off season, which is when we love to travel. Juan picked us up at a dock near Gamboa Resort.
