Hotel Description

Gamboa Rainforest Resort: Exploring Nature

Set your sights on the thrilling rainforest surrounding the Gamboa Rainforest Resort outside Panama City. Exploration and adventure beckon with the resort's attractions and tours, right in the heart of Soberania National Park. Designed to give guests educational fun, the resort's protected and preserved location in the Panama Canal area is home to a variety of plant and animal life for guests hungry for a taste of biodiversity, history and cultural heritage.

The lush grounds of Gamboa Rainforest Resort are 35 minutes from Panama City and along the banks of the Chagres River and Gatun Lake. These valuable Panama Canal water sources are the backdrop to serenity and adventure, though the pool is a safer bet for swimming unless you like alligators! Paddle up to Cascadas swim-up bar for a mojito while soaking up the sun, and when hunger strikes take your pick of the three dining options. Corotu Restaurant's international theme dinners--from Italian to Panamanian--offer guests a taste tour, and Chagres River View Restaurant offers exquisite fine dining. After dinner, guests can groove to live music or relax to the nighttime sounds of the rainforest on the terrace at the Monkey Lobby Bar.

In order for guests to take full advantage of the area's unique eco-system, the resort has educational exhibits along pathways and trails. Let wonder guide you through the freshwater fish aquarium, reptile exhibit and historical and cultural displays. The resort's tours are a popular way to explore the surrounding environment totally worry-free, and the Arial Tram Tour gives you a bird's-eye view of breathtaking flora and fauna. The Monkey Island Tour brings guests face to face with capuchin and howler monkeys!

Adventuring can be tiring; luckily the resort's Sensory Spa by Clarins has the secret to winding down after a long day with natural herbs and minerals. We loved the quiet herbal wrap. When it's time to call it a day, the Standard Room's comfortable furnishings are just the thing. Looking for a bit of history? Choose one of the 48 renovated 1930s One Bedroom Historic Apartments.
