See the beautiful Panamanian rainforest from a new perspective with an Aerial Tram tour.
About an hour and 20 minute drive to reach Gamboa, the sightseeing along the way was nice and my first experience of a highway ride outside of US/Mexico.
The Tram itself was not very good in my opinion, we managed to see a toucan for about 4 seconds and an iguana laying on some leafs. The guide said that the location is very lively from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., sadly our ship didn't arrive until 9:00 a.m. to the port.
Once the tram ride reaches the summit, theres a brief trail that leads to a tower with some spectacular views. I took took some pictures from here and also saw Gamboa again the next day when we travesed the canal. Probably the best part of the exursion was here.
Heading back down the tram it began to rain and the staff at gamboa handed out rain coats and provided a turket sandwich lunch. After this we viewed some small exihibits for reptiles, fish/crocs/turtles, butterflys, and a garden.

After a long bus ride we did like the tram portion of the trip, but the rest of the trip was boring and much longer than was advertised. The so called "light lunch" was a tiny bag of chips and bottle of water. When arriving back to the port, the passageway to the ship was blocked and a big crowd was gathered. I was feeling light headed from the lack of food and couldn't wait to get back on the ship. We had to wait about 30 minutes.
