Panama Modern and Colonial City, Canal Visit and Monkey Island Jungle Adventure
For those who likes to contrast their tours by having an overall view of a city including wild life observation areas; I invite you to an 8 hours Tour were you'll experience the City of Panama and the Monkey Island (Isla Baila Mono). Lunch Time is counted during the tour period.
The sites that we'll visit along the journey are:
Panama Canal (Miraflores Locks Visitors Center), Casco Antiguo (Historical District of Panama declared as a World Heritage City by UNESCO), Modern Panama City (Financial District with its Skyline Towers) and Monkey Island (Boat Ride through the Canal Watershed visiting the Island and observing its variety of Flora and Fauna).
About lunch, there are good restaurants along the tour circuit (local Panamanian and International Food) so it wouldn't be a problem to reach up to one of these in our way.
We Start by visiting The Monkey Island which in this case we take a ride to Gamboa Public Boat Ramp in order to board a motor launch that will carry us to the Island. During the boat ride there's a possibility to observe vessels transiting through the Canal Waterway as also some wild life animals in their natural habitat at the Island. After that, we continue our journey to the Historical World Heritage City of Panama known as Casco Antiguo which we will do a walk around to some of the plazas or squares and explain its history. At the end of this, we might be in a good time to have lunch at a Traditional local Panamanian Food. Once lunched, we continue on a Panoramic ride to the Modern side of Panama (Skyline) and right away we move to The Miraflores Locks Visitor Center to observe Vessels transiting through the Canal. As optional, we have some souvenirs shops at the Heritage city (Old Town) or visit the City of Knowledge (former American military quarter known as Fort Clayton)
