rainforest day trips from Panama City?

Jump to last reply

Hi there!

We will be staying in Panama City for a few days in August and I was wondering if anyone had advice as to day trips into the rainforest? We're interested in seeing animals more than we are birds.

One option seems to be the Smithsonian Barro Colorado trip (http://www.stri.si.edu/english/visit_us/barro_colorado/visit.php).

Another option seems to be one of the two day trips at Canopy Tower Lodge (http://www.canopytower.com/Day-visits).

Another option is to take a wildlife tour of the canal, though we do like the idea of at least a short hike through the rainforest so that's less appealing to us.

Has anyone done any of these? What was it like? Would you recommend a different experience that I haven't found in my research?

Thanks!
