Gamboa Rainforest Resort is a destination resort located within the Soberania National Park just 45 minutes from the international airport in Panama City, Panama.
From this beautiful deluxe resort, you have immediate access to Panama’s pristine rainforest and the Panama Canal. Exploring the rainforest has never been easier, since all of the attractions and most of the tours are found right on the property, or only minutes away from your doorstep.
Activities from Gamboa
For a bird’s eye view of the Soberania National Park and Panama Canal, climb aboard the specially designed onsite aerial tram and glide quietly through the rainforest canopy where you’ll encounter plants and animals rarely seen by visitors on the ground.
The first class marina provides tours of the Chagres River and Lake Gatun, sport fishing trips for peacock bass and other exotic freshwater species (catch and release only), kayaking trips, and tours to the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute on Barro Colorado Island. Take a night safari boat-ride, and with sharp eyes, you might spot some of the shyer forest creatures!
