Gamboa Rainforest Resort

Gamboa Rainforest Resort , Panama

Gamboa Rainforest Resort is a luxury destination resort located on the Panama Canal, in the heart of the lush Panamanian rainforest, just 30 minutes from Panama City on 340 acres overlooking the Panama Canal.

The resort has been carefully designed to provide a variety of educational and adventure experiences. Exploring the rainforest has never been easier, since many attractions and most of the tours are found right on the property, or only minutes away from your doorstep.

The resort has created several exhibits to showcase the vast diversity of the rainforest's flora and fauna. You can visit the freshwater aquarium, orchid and botanical gardens, butterfly nursery, turtle and iguana nesting areas, a reptile exhibit, historical and cultural displays, or sign up for various nature and observation tours. For a bird's eye view of the Soberania National Park and Panama Canal, climb aboard the specially designed aerial tram and glide quietly through the rainforest canopy where you'll encounter plants and animals rarely seen by visitors on the ground.


The accommodations at the resort consist of 38 one and two-bedroom air-conditioned, renovated villas and a new, 107-room luxury hotel. The villas, originally built in the 1930's and 40's, are the former residences of Panama Canal administrators and their families and have been completely refurbished to capture the ambiance of the original buildings. The main hotel facility is comprised of 107 deluxe, air-conditioned river front rooms, each offering spectacular views of the Chagres River and the surrounding Soberania National Park. Daily breakfast is included.
