The Gamboa Rainforest Resort is in a beautiful area.... It is a family friendly place... The restaurant is excellent... Don Vipula is the Chef....- (Be careful when you put anything in your safe in your room because the safe is NOT attached to anything..)

Great boat tour on the canal and river to see monkeys and bird life in the area. The boat was comfortable. The driver made sure both sides of the boat got to see the wildlife.

WE went by boat from the resort with a guide and several indigenous escorts. We got a guided tour of the village and of the rainforest where specific plants were identified by a guide from the village. We were treated to some food prepared by the village and some dancing by the villagers. We also had a short lecture about... More

The aerial tram goes through the young 30 year old rainforest of Gamboa. The tour operator in your tram talked some, but did not go into details about the rainforest. After you get to the top, they let you out onto an observation area which overlooks the Chagres And it has a very panaromic view. It was in May, the... More
