SOBERANIA NATIONAL PARK & GAMBOA
Very close to Panama City, in the town of Gamboa, situated on Gatun Lake, there is the tourist center at the Gamboa Rainforest Resort. Don’t miss your chance to see wildlife and ships transiting the canal.
First, you tour the Chagres River by motor launch heading towards the Monkeys Island to see wildlife. Here you will find abundant fauna represented by tortoises, crocodiles, different birds, sloths, iguanas, and several kinds of monkeys such as capuchins, tamarins, and howlers monkeys. This part of the tour takes approximately 90 minutes.
Then, we will go back to the Gamboa Rainforest Resort where the aerial tram tour starts. We will see the forest from a breathtaking perspective, while sitting comfortably in the Swiss-engineered aerial tram system. Gliding smoothly through the treetops, you will experience the sounds and peace of the tropical rainforest firsthand. You will discover the splendid panoramic views of the Chagres River, the Panama Canal, the Embera Indians Village, and the town of Gamboa.
We visit the Sloth rescue center, the butterflies expositions, and the Frogs center. This part of the tour takes approximately 3,5 hours.
After the tour, we recommend trying delicious seafood in the Caiman restaurant on the Chagres River.
