Adventure and relaxation await you in this enchanting and splendid hideaway. Take part in colorful sights, natural wildlife, and relaxing, spacious accommodations in a jungle paradise. Gamboa Rainforest Resort is nestled on the banks of the Chagres River, approximately 28 miles northwest of Tocumen International Airport.

Escape into the jungle as a couple or with the entire family without leaving the comforts of this full-service exotic resort. Gamboa Rainforest Resort is truly a one-of-a-kind vacation experience. Within the Soberania National Park Rainforest, the resort is far from the noise and bustle of the city, deep within an enchanting and sumptuous hideaway full of adventure and relaxation. Experience a jungle adventure on an aerial tram, a guided boat tour of Gatun Lake and the Panama Canal, or visit hidden islands where, should conditions be favorable, you will see families of capuchin, howler and white-face monkeys.

Choose from the European Plan or the All-Inclusive Plan with meals and domestic drinks included. For a family-style dinner, Los Lagartos is your best bet. Located over the river at the Marina, the restaurant offers the only view of the Chagres River Delta entering the Panama Canal. The resort's signature restaurant, Corotu, features a continental breakfast, lunch buffet, and fantastic dinners featuring Oriental and Panamanian cuisine.

Relax in a large, comfortable hammock or patio furniture on your private balcony, or refresh at the pools, all while taking in a breathtaking view of the Chagres River and beautiful rainforest of Soberania National Park Rainforest. Elegant, tropical furnishings adorn the rooms, where the calming feel of the jungle stays with you even throughout the night.

Beautiful - but needs an update

This is a beautiful place - gorgeous views, cute little animal refuge, large pool, resort feel. I loved the sloths! Unfortunately, the upkeep of the resort is a bit spotty, and the food was a disappointment.

Moldy and Tired Resort

If you want to breathe mold in old tired rooms then feel free to book. Over priced restaurants and the tree top tram for $40 per person is a scalping. Only good deal was fishing. I would suggest staying at Radisson near and then drive to do activities. This place is just a mess and over priced considering what hotels go for in Panama.

Located in the heart of the reserve Soberania Nature Reserve, containing the second largest rainforest in the western hemisphere. The rainforest is home to more than 100 species of animals and 1,300 plant species and is only a 20-minute drive from the capital, Panama City. overlooking the spectacular Charges River. The hotel's large terrace has a view where you can not just take your eyes off

Unique Hotel in beautiful location

We stayed here two nights on a Caravan Tour. The hotel is located in a beautiful setting. The room was attractive and comfortable with a balcony with a hammock. The pool was very nice. The lobby and common areas were attractive and the food selection and quality in the dining room was excellent. We enjoyed the night safari tour to look at wildlife. It is close to the frog garden, sloth sanctuary and the Embera village. The only problem we encountered was a shortage of hot water in the shower. The room safe was also missing.

A very beautiful resort. The pool is huge! The surrounding scenery is beautiful. A boat trip on the canal is a must. The monkeys will eat directly from your hand. The monkey lounge was great for drinks, snacks and meals. The front desk staff is very courteous and polite.
