We stayed in the floating lodge for one night in October during our trip to Panama, and it was easily the best part of the holiday. We were picked up by Carl by boat, and taken to the lodge via the Panama Canal! At first we passed the large container ships, before heading into the jungle and seeing many birds and three types of monkeys; howlers, capuchins and tamarins, including a monkey who lives on an island on his own; Pablo.
Carl was very knowledgable about both the history of the canal, and also the jungle wildlife.
Upon arrival at the lodge, we had a great lunch. Our room was perfect, with a view out into the lake and jungle, and a hammock on the balcony.
In the afternoon we had two kayak trips to different waterfalls, where we saw iguanas, toucans and hawks, and could swim in the rivers.
Our evening meal was again excellent, including catering for vegetarians, and beer and wine flowed all evening. My only regret is that we only stayed one night, as there is nothing better than waking up to the sounds of the jungle.
I cannot recommend this place enough, and is a must do on any trip to Panama!
