Gamboa does not have many options for lodging, so luckly Ivan's B&B is available. It's a great place to stay for birders, with breakfast and coffee available at 6:00 am. Ivan drove us around town in his golf cart to get us oriented. We were able to walk to the pipeline road from the B&B since we did not have a car. We chose to have dinners at Ivan's since there is little else availble in town, the food was always great. Ivan gave lots of advice on the bus system.
Although not a fancy place, its comfortalbe and convenient.
