Panama City, Panama
Reviewed 29 September 2016

It is an excellent place for short stays, it's like being in the jungle but not far from the city, the best are the tours to learn a little more about the history of Panama and without forgetting the delicious food made by the owner, totally recommend this place, you must visit on your vacation!

This is a very nice and secluded spot on a hill north of Panama city close to lake Gatun. As the name hints they have a big habitat that is the home of 5 monkeys. The property is really beautiful. The 4 bungalows are really clean. The small pool could be a bit cleaner but is nice to take a...

We stayed here for 2 nights. The staff was very friendly and took great care of us. We had breakfast and dinner here every day. We opted to take one of the tours of the canal. The owners son was our guide (this is a family run business). The tour was great, and we had much more fun than the...

We loved our a day trip out with Monkey Lodge! Max was our guide: we sailed onto the canal & the lake, stopping at several islands to see the monkeys (capucins and tamarins) & other wildlife. Max is very knowledgeable about the area, the canal and the whole environment, and he is an excellent captain, making sure to navigate safely...

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at the Monkey Lodge in "Lula's Cottage" and loved everything about it. Fabrice was a great host - we had an early flight to catch when leaving and he woke up early to cook us breakfast! Speaking of the breakfast, it was delicious, filling and the perfect way to start each day. We...

Close to Panama but a world away. Fabrice and family run a tranquil haven for animals and guests alike. Not for corporate clones, the simple, clean bungalows, monkey enclosure, garden and small pool area with hammocks are a paradisiacal escape from the bustle and dirt. We took a half-dayboat trip along the canal, and enjoyed super evening meals with an...

We spent 3 nights at this beautiful lodge with pool and individual huts on our trip through Panama and Costa Rica. Though one of the more expensive accomodations on our trip, we were spoiled there. The food was homemade and tasted delicious. The hosts, a French couple, were very kind and helpful. The two dogs, playing in the garden all...

Located in the middle of the jungle about 45 mins outside of Panama, is the family run lodge that offers four cabins with with a double bed and ensuite bathrooms that are basic but nice.

We had a very pleasant stay, 2 nights with our two children. The owner has adopted a few monkeys, hence the name of the place. The children could pet the animals (under strict surveillance, of course). Food was great. Rooms were a bit small, but nice. Shower and beds just good. Swimming pool big enough, just wonderful after a day...
