Know More about this tour

Bayano Lake was created from Bayano River and its feeders after the construction of a dam and hydroelectric plant that provides the city of Panama and other areas, with electricity. The lake is divided into three zones interconnected by a total of 135 square miles (350 square kilometers). 80% of the lake shore is within the region of Madungand, populated by indigenous Kuna, Embera and Wounaan, Amerindian people.

Bayano Lake is a jewel of Panama, with a spectacular environment that is home to hundreds of birds and other animal species, some of them very rare. Chief among its many splendors, is found in the caves of Lake Bayano in Panama.

The caves were formed over many centuries by an underground river that still flows today, the erosion of limestone, and a combination of several factors as wind and floods.The path inside the cave lasts about four hours, with a degree of difficulty with easy parts but some parts moderately difficult, requiring more physical effort. The terrain include river crossings, large rocks, slippery ground etc.

There are areas where light penetrates to areas where we need to use lamps. There will be deep waters within the caves,so the swimming isnecessary.

Inside you will see water drops from the ceiling giving the appearance of waterfalls, different rock formations and a diverse fauna.

This tour requires physically healthy and adventurous spirit, invites nature lovers or those wishing to relax from stress and city noise. From early morning the tour starts from the capital to the Lake Bayano important natural resource of Panama.

  • Our tour guide was great! He was on time, spoke great English and was very knowledgeable. He was very diligent looking out for our safety and was happy to point out the local wildlife. The cave was amazing. Great experience to do while in Panama. We saw lots of bats, fish, birds, frogs, lizards, and even a caiman on the boat ride to the cave. On the car ride to the cave, our guide stopped to let us see a family of spider monkeys.

  • This tour is not for everyone, it's in a remote area, about two hour drive and and 45 min lake crossing to a small hut, just outside of the entry of the cave. Inside of the cave, there are many big boulders and rocks, deep water holes, need to climb up and down. We saw many bats, fishes, lizzards and one snake. The cave is not anything like Carlsbad Cavern in New Mexico in size, magnitude, shape, and complexity. This cave maybe a mile long, you will be disappointed if you anticipate to see great formations of Stalactites and Stalagmites. Our guide, Antonio, was very knowlegible, spoke English well, a very patience young man.

  • how cool is this, a boat ride across a lake to a river cave. Spectacular entry into the cave to be met by bats and around the first corner even more bats.. some sections pretty tough and a couple of swim points but hey, if it was easy it would have spoilt it and there would be people everywhere. Perfect swimming hole at the return point with monkeys overhead has you thinking you are a world away from civilization. loved every step and swim
