Turtles sun themselves on Monkey Island on Gatun Lake near the Panama Canal | Photo by Randy Gener

GPS | CENTRAL AMERICA:   Monkey Island lives up to its name.  Located at the Gamboa Rainforest in Panama, a boat ride tour around Gatun Lake, which surrounds Monkey Island, is a fun opportunity to see 4 different species of monkey, all within 40 minutes of Panama’s capital city.  I did see many other animal specials such as crocodiles, sloths, exotic birds and, in this photo, turtles sunning themselves on Gatun Lake, surrounding Monkey Island.  If you keep re-visiting this site, I promise to post photos of the monkey that swiped the banana from my pocket. — RG
