Gamboa is a world away from Panama City - ideally you'll be there with a car. My husband and I wanted to have a quintessential "old canal days" style experience as well as be near the best birding in Panama - and our three nights at Canopy B&B didn't disappoint. Reservations were easy via lots of emails with the Canopy... More

We stay at the Canopy B&B for several nights in one of the rooms on the 2nd floor. The room we stayed in was clean and of average size. The bathroom is larger than I expected with a big shower (larger than a normal size bathtub). There is only the bed and desk/chair in the room, so it’s pretty basic.... More

Stayed here with a group of friends for 2 nights and it was perfect for a relaxing getaway. Jen and the staff are fantastic. This is a very quiet B&B with good service, good food, and good accommodations. Bring a game, enjoy a book, or go for a nature walk. Be sure to try the local fondas and check out... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Canopy B&B. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Nice views of the mountains. Well maintained property, our room was small but very comfortable. Breakfast was included in the room cost and dinner was provided for an extra cost. The only other place to eat was at the Canopy Tower Eco-Lodge. Town of Gamboa... More

I was really looking forward staying in Canopy Bed & Breakfast, but it turned out to be a big disappointment. I paid 133 dollar plus 10 procent taxes for 1 night in room number 2 downstairs. The room is very dark and smelled terrible - very, very musty. The floor in the bathroom was dusty - It felt like the... More

My friends and I shared this bed and breakfast with a Brazilian tv film crew. We had great fun talking to them. The staff was very polite and accommodating. The breakfast was good and offered more choice than most b and b's. I really enjoyed it, but do prepare to hear noise from other guests. It was not a problem... More

Nice place, very homey b&b feel with large welcoming living room/dining room. Don't confuse it with their other similar sounding hotels in other areas. Breakfast was decent selection of bread, cereal, fruit and a few hot items while we were there. Dinner was also arranged and very suitable for our vegetarian needs. Unique. Nice setup in a pleasant neighborhood, also... More

Need transport if you want to go the Pipeline Road everyday. Birders, it is worth it! It would help if the B and B fixed their bikes! The Smithsonian grad students use bikes. You can bring a car or the B and B can get you a driver for $10 each way. Easy to get to B and B from... More

We are happy to inform our past and future guests that we now have two new mountain bikes available for rent at the Canopy Bed & Breakfast. As our bikes in the past may not have been up to snuff for some of the more rural roads in the area, our new bikes are now ready to experience Pipeline Road,... More

This B&B is the more economical option to the Canopy Tower Lodge, and is conveniently situated in Gamboa, where you can get to it by bus from Ciudad de Panamá. We booked by telephone, and although we were promised (by email) a map/info to get to the B&B from the bus stop, we never got it, so we started our... More

We are pleased to offer the Canopy Bed & Breakfast not as an alternative to the Canopy Tower but as a relaxed, family-friendly accommodation where our guests can plan their own stays without the pre-set package of a birding tour. Our B&B is set in the tranquil town of Gamboa, and arriving by bus is indeed possible but once in... More

After reading the mediocre reviews of the enormous, overpriced Gamboa Resort down the road, we're so happy we stumbled upon the Canopy BnB! It's the old, well taken care of lodging which the US Engineers and their families stayed in while constructing the Panama Canal. The staff was very friendly and there was a Canadian citizen as a manager (who... More
