We hired a driver in port and he took us all over the city and was an amazing guide. We walked all over, shopped, had drinks and I fell in love with this beautiful city. It was one of favorites. The history, architecture and friendly people were wonderful. Don’t miss it. Yoyi Dominguez was our driver and I would highly recommend him. You can find him on Facebook or let me know if you need more information Read Less

Enjoyed a tour of the old locks and the new locks. We came on this curise to learn about the canal and this was the best tour for that.

'We took the Panama 'Canal Railway train from Fuerte Amador, Panama City, through the countryside to the new locks and watched some ships transit. Time to see a small film on the canal and tour around the new locks was fun.

Monkey Island Tour- Got to see a number of animals and birds, but once again the guides were not as knowledgeable about the birds we were seeing. The habituated Capuchins were great to see.

We took the train to the new locks, then the bus back. This was actually my least favorite of the trips, but it was still good. We had spent the extra for the dome car (and I don't think it was worth it). The seating was very tight, especially for modern Cruise Ship sized people, but I spent most of the time on the open deck and enjoyed the scenery. The rain forest zips by pretty quick, though, and there wasn't much in the way of birds or animals to see. I enjoyed the time at the new locks, watching a tanker transit through, but the bus ride back to the port was long and the countryside largely uninteresting. Read Less

We went on the Monkey and Wildlife Nature Cruise. Tour guide was very knowledgeable, we saw three monkey species and a lot of fauna. The trip back was alongside the canal and we had a great view of several ships traversing the canal.

Panama City is most unlikey with its mix of very modern skyscarpers, the original colony and the old town which was gorgeous.

Here we took a ships excursion to the Embera Village. This was an amazing highlight for me! Imagine stepping back in time to a pristine river with a village of people from 100s( or maybe 1000s ) of years ago! This was NOT a Disney production but a reall life picture of another culture , another lifestyle that is disappearing! We ate, danced, learned about food and life and shopped for gorgeous handmade goods! I HIGHLY recommend this experience to anyone who wants to learn about a way to live outside of modern life!

We enjoyed see a little of Panama while traveling on bus to Agua Clara. The second stop was at a museum and movie that gave a very good overview of the history/construction of the Panama Canal.
