Visit the Embera Indigenous Community to learn about the area’s original inhabitants before heading on an expedition to Gatun Lake, the world’s second-largest artificial lake where you’ll spot capuchin and howler monkeys and explore the water systems of the Panama Canal. Then ride the Aerial Tram for 600 metres over the rainforest, sharing the canopy with sloths, monkeys, and exotic birds. After your excursions, unwind with a cocktail at the Monkey Bar or Los Cascades Pool Bar or relax with a massage in the spa.
