Outstanding views of the Chagres River and the rainforest about 20kms from Panama City. River view rooms have a hammock on the terrace, which is great for just watching the world go by. Lots of activities (not badly priced) including walking in the rainforest, aerial tram, kayaking and a night safari, which was fun. You can also explore around the resort yourself and see many birds and animals such as squirrel monkeys and squirrels and maybe a capybara. Guides could be a bit more knowledgeable (we spotted as many birds and animals ourselves) but are very good natured. Food at the onsite restaurants is fine and eating breakfast on the terrace, looking out over the river and forest is a memorable experience. Things sometimes a little chaotic and staff, while willing and polite, can be hit and miss at times but the location really cancels this out.
