FROM PLAYA BLANCA MONKEY ISLAND AND CITY TOUR
Enjoy the unique opportunity to be inside the Panama Canal Watershed as you travel to the Gatun Lake eco-cruise and visit the Monkey Islands, where you can see several species of monkeys and lush natural landscapes.
Start with an early pickup from your Riu Playa Blanca Resort around 7:00 a.m. - and head to the charming cobblestone streets of Old Quarter Casco Antiguo. Tracing its history to 1673 and filled with splendid colonial architecture, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is today one of Panama City’s liveliest districts. There are local and indigenous arts and crafts at Casco Antiguo. (Here you will meet the bilingual guide.)
After this, we will drive around the famous Cerro Ancon inside the former U.S. Canal Zone and out to the islands along the Amador Causeway for the best view of Panama’s skyline, with a stop at the colorful PANAMA sign.
In the afternoon, we will hop aboard a high-speed motorboat and marvel at the breathtaking flora and fauna surrounding Gatun Lake.
The lake is one of the sets of locks in the Panama Canal, on the Pacific side. There, you will have an ecological experience in the region, where you can sail by the lake and see animals and the surrounding forest.
Enjoy stops at Monkey Island, home to several species of monkeys that are native to Central America. Monkey Island boasts an incredible amount of wildlife. Stay on the lookout for capuchin monkeys, Geoffroy's tamarin and howler, and other species.
If you are lucky, come close to some of the large ships that transit the canal daily.
Around 3:45 pm, we will head back to the resort, so you may arrive around 6:15 pm, depending on traffic.
