About the neighbourhood
Gamboa is a Old Canal Zone Township located exactly half way up the Panama Canal. It is bordered by the Panama Canal, The Rio Chagras, and Parque Sobrania. Our little town is only accessible by a single lane bridge that crosses the Chagras River.
Getting around
There is limited public transportation to Gamboa in the form of a bus that comes out to Gamboa via Albrook Terminal. Otherwise renting a car is highly recommended if you want to see other parts of Panama than Gamboa. If you are only interested in Gamboa you do not need a car. It is possible to call an uber but they charge about $60 to pick you up and take you to Panama city center.
Car advised
