This fabulous tour begins with a scenic 45-minute drive to the luxurious Gamboa Rainforest Resort. The resort is located in the 55,000-acre Soberania National Park which is adjacent to the Panama Canal and near the historic Chagres River. On the grounds of the resort, an aerial tram has been constructed, unlocking the secrets of the heavily populated rainforest canopy.

Boarding your tram, you'll begin your ascent from the shadowy rainforest floor through the understory of vegetation and into the sun-drenched canopy. Here, you will have a bird's eye view of a thousand hues of green, interspersed with the fluorescent exclamation points of flowering trees. As you glide through the canopy, you'll sight the many animals that live high above the forest floor, such as Howler monkeys, sloths, coatimundi, and capybara. Beautiful birds like the toucan, parrot, and momot are also plentiful here, as are iguanas, frogs, butterflies, and dragonflies. After your tram ride, you may choose to climb the observation tower to enjoy a 360-degree, panoramic view of the Panama Canal, the Chagres River, and the surrounding tropical rainforest. Before returning to the pier, you will have some free time at the resort to explore the many exhibits, which include a butterfly farm, aquarium, orchid garden. There is also the opportunity to do some shopping while you are here.
