We had somewhat low expectations of seeing monkeys and other critters, based on other reviews but we saw lots of cool animals/reptiles!
We were in a small boat, with a total of three guests, a tour guide, the tour guide we hired to drive us to Gatun Lake, and the boat driver. They guides and the driver know their stuff! They knew exactly where to stop to see critters, knew how to find them/call for them, and knew all about their habits etc. They also had the history of the Panama Canal and the Lake down!
We saw two different types of monkeys, some turtles, crocodiles, and song birds. The tour we went on did not allow us to feed the monkeys, but that was totally fine by me. Another tour, with a shady looking guide, was handing out mango to the monkeys. We were able to watch their interactions and grab some close up photos.
The tour was shorter than I expected, but I think it was because the water level was so low. Had there been more water I think we would have gone in to find sloths and other critters. I had a great time and highly recommend this visit!
