Lonely Planet review

Near the junction of the Panama Canal and the Río Chagres, 9km past the turnoff for Canopy Tower on the road to Colón, is the US$30-million Gamboa Rainforest Resort. Although it’s just a resort located in a rainforest as opposed to an environmentally friendly ecolodge, it’s hard to deny its grandeur. All 110 luxurious guest rooms offer sweeping vistas of the jungle-flanked Río Chagres.

There's echoes of Disneyland, with an onsite golf course, spa, gym, marina, swimming pool and bar-restaurant. There’s even an aerial tram that brings you up into the canopy, as well as a healthy offering of guided nature walks and bird-watching trips (which cost extra). The website offers special package deals, which often include activities, meals and transfers.

Our independent authors have visited Gamboa Rainforest Resort and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Gamboa.
