The Gamboa Rainforest lies where the Panama Canal meets the Río Chagres, far removed from the frantic lick of urban life. Take one of the many nature trails, ascend a 130 foot observation tower or travel by aerial tram while enjoying incredible views of the forest, river, canal and town. Hop aboard a motorboat and take an exhilarating journey on the river, snaking through the jungle. Stop at Puru to be greeted by the Emberá, the indigenous people of Panama, who will teach you about their customs and heritage. Return to the village for an evening of traditional music and dancing displays, and a local meal of patacones and fried fish.
