Gamboa Gamboa  Panama

Named for a quincelike fruit, the town of Gamboa lies at the spot where the Chagres River enters Gatún Lake. A single-lane causeway with a lone stoplight helps make this tropical village feel like small-town America. And, for a long time, it essentially was: In the 1930s the U.S. canal administration built schools, churches and a post office here for canal workers and their families. Today, the town's Gamboa Rainforest Resort has an aerial tram featuring views of the jungle canopy and the birds found in its vicinity.
