Gatun Lake Tour

Gatun Lake forms a major component of the Panama Canal.You can take a tour and immerse yourself in the nature, history and impressive engineering of the Panama Canal during this 45-minute boat tour.  This major part of the canal is home to abundant tropical wildlife and is surrounded by a lush forest. I recently took one of these tours through Gamboa Rainforest Resort.   I was fascinated by the beauty of my surroundings and the flora and fauna of the area.  The cost of the trip is under $40 for adults.
