Gamboa Rainforest Resort


In a Nutshell

Tucked deep in the Soberania National Park, the spectacular Gamboa Resort is surrounded by an ocean of lush foliage teeming with tropical birds, monkeys, sloth and other rainforest regulars. The impressive lobby boasts magnetic views over the Panama Canal and Chagres River through huge panoramic windows while life-size crane sculptures hang overhead and a stream cascades through a three-story tropical atrium, flowing into the swimming pool below. Rooms are spacious, with tropical furnishings, satellite TV, air conditioning, and private balconies with hammocks. There is an upscale, a la carte restaurant, a more familiar buffet restaurant, and two bars with snack menus. A sparkling, two-level swimming pool, spa, rainforest aerial tram, and gift shop selling local handcrafts round up the offer.
