    The Chagres river feeds Gatun Lake whose fresh waters are used to operate the Panama Canal. Near the town of Gamboa, you can visit the Embera village by just taking a 5 minute dugout canoe crossing. This ethnic village can take you back to the time the Spaniards came to the Isthmus of Panama looking for a route to East. Venta de Cruces is also within a short boat ride and is the place where prior to the Panama Canal and the Panama Railroad , travelers would be transported from the Atlantic port of Chagrecito upriver by dougout canoe to Venta de Cruces to then be taken by mule to Panama City. During the California Gold Rush, this was the preferred route from the east coast of the U.S.
    Bass fishing con also spectacularl. There are various fishing operators that can be found in the Gamboa docks that will provide a day of bass fishing at the sight of the ships crossing the Canal. The undisturbed jungle is the backgroud setting of the mouth of the mighty and historical Chagres Rive at Gamboa.
