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

This was an absolutely amazing experience. Our guide, Orlando was knowledgeable and made the journey fun and educational. Lake Bayano is massive and after a boat ride to the other side of the lake you enter the cave/canyon system. The hike through the caves was filled with challenges like climbing over large rock formations, wading through chest high water and even an opportunity to do a little cliff jump. After the hike you have a hot lunch waiting with fresh fish, tostones and some of the juiciest fruits I have ever had. If you are visiting Panama I highly recommend this excursion and make sure to ask for Orlando.

Amazing! Highly recommended! Very authentic and pure. Beware, not for the unfit or claustrophobic, we swam with only like 2 feet above us, unable to touch the ground. Amazing views, amazing experience. Lunch was very private and perfect! Have nothing bad to say, the car ride was worth every minute!

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.
