Experience the magic of the virgin rainforest of Gamboa, ascending some 280 feet from the shadowy forest floor through the dense undergrowth and up to the sun drenched canopy with its thousand shades of green that are only interrupted by the vibrant colors of flowering trees, this the first and only tram in Panama. Colorful birds and butterflies are abundant here, and you might also encounter sloth tor white-faced capuchin monkeys and hear the howler monkey cry out in the distance. After the tour you will visit the orquidearium, butterfly house, fresh water aquarium and snake house, then we will take a boat trip through the Panama Canal waterways to visit the islands that once upon time were mountains and were created when the area was flooded to form the Gatun Lake.
This area is a sanctuary for the native flora and fauna. You can easily spot monkeys, toucans, alligators and turtles. We will finish the trip with a lunch at Los Lagartos restaurant which has wonderful views of the Chagres River.
