Panama- Gamboa Rainforest Resort

Deep in the heart of the Panamanian rainforest lies the completely unique Gamboa Rainforest Resort in the in the former Canal Zone. It is a beautiful building complex with gorgeous plantings and a wonderful staff. They offer several free excursions into the rainforest. 

We also went on a motorboat ride in the Panama Canal and later an aerial tram ride over the canopy of the rainforest. We saw howler monkeys and two other monkey species, parrots and toucans, other birds and crocodiles. 

Gamboa is a small town in the Republic of Panama. It was one of a handful of permanent Canal Zone townships, built to house employees of the Panama Canal and their dependents. The name Gamboa is the name of a tree of the quince family.
