The easiest way for you to have close contact with monkeys in their natural habitat is undoubtedly on Monkey Island. Located in Gatun Lake in the Gamboa Rainforest - just 40 minutes from Panama City. When the Gatun Dam was built in the early 1900s, it prevented the Chagres River from flowing into the Caribbean Sea, creating Lake Gatun, which at the time was the largest man-made lake in the world. Today, Gatun Lake is an invaluable asset to the Panama Canal, as it carries tens of thousands of ships each year for 33 kilometers on their journey through the Isthmus of Panama. On one of the small islands that were once the hilltops of the Chagres Valley, now sits Monkey Island - known for its large monkey population.
