Today, it's a trip into the Panama rainforest in central Panama, to the Gamboa Rainforest, located right beside the Panama Canal and the Chagres River which flows into it. It includes a cable car ride up the hill to walk through the forest to an observation tour, a tour of plant, butterfly, fish and wildlife of the area, and a boat ride along the canal to what is called Monkey Island, which actually is a series of islands with up to four major species of monkeys in view.
