1. Where is the Canopy Bed and Breakfast located?

The Canopy Bed and Breakfast is located in the Canal town of Gamboa, walking distance from Pipeline Road, in a house dating back to the construction of the Panama Canal. Please visit our History page to learn more!

2. Are birding tours offered at the Canopy B&B?

The Birds of Canopy B&B all-inclusive birding tour package is based out of the Canopy B&B. We also offer a day visit to the Canopy Tower, including a guided tour and lunch, to our guests at the B&B for a special price. Please ask about this tour upon arrival at the B&B.

3. How many rooms are in the B&B?

There are five bedrooms within the Canopy Bed and Breakfast, all with private bath and self-controlled air conditioners. Each room is slightly different from the other, so check out our Rooms and Floor Plans.

4. Are any meals other than breakfast available?

Yes, dinner is available pre-paid with reservation for $22 pp + 7% tax, between 6pm - 7pm.

5. Is lunch available?

At this time lunch is not available. However, there are a few restaurants open for lunch in Gamboa and you can purchase snacks at the small grocery store in town not far from the B & B. Ask staff for directions.

6. Do I need a VISA to enter Panama?

US & Canadian citizens need only a valid passport. Other nationalities please consult the nearest Panamanian Consular office. Your passport must have at least 6 months validity remaining.

7. What about biting insects?

Biting insects are not as bad in the rainforest as most people think. There could be a few mosquitoes and gnats, which any good insect repellent will work on. In addition to insects, we also have ticks and chiggers (near-microscopic type of mite) that you get from being in the grass and walking through the bush. Sulphur powder is an excellent means to keep the chiggers away. We provide sulphur powder.

8. Does the Canopy B&B offer laundry services?

Yes, we happily offer laundry services at the Canopy Bed and Breakfast.

9. What is your check-in / check-out policy?

Check-in time is from Noon to 7:00 pm. Due to the nature of the Canopy Bed and Breakfast, we do not accept arrivals after 7:00 pm. Please contact us for options regarding late arrivals.

Check-out time is 9:00 am. Late check out may be available for an additional fee, and we'll be happy to accommodate our guests given sufficient notice.
