We stayed at the Canopy Tower for three nights in December. (We also stayed at the Lodge.) The Tower is relatively spartan as compared with the Lodge, with smaller rooms and a smaller staff.  There is no air conditioning, but the location is higher in elevation and is much cooler than in Panama City.   The food is served family...

We spent 4 days at Canopy Tower and it really proved to be among the world-top birding destinations! Every morning we witnessed various wildlife from the observation deck, which provides unique opportunities for observing and photographing/filming birds and other wildlife. All attended tours were very well organized and the guides were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We have chosen to visit...

I have traveled and studied birds in many parts of the world and this is a really unique place to stay in panama. The food was good and the ability to see species at eye level is amazing. The staff is really nice and the rooms are clean and unique. However, it is completely overpriced and unless you stay for...

We spent seven nights at Canopy Tower, a jewel in the center of Panama. Our stay included accomodations, food, transportation, and fantastic wildlife guides. Our primary purpose for this trip was serious birding. The Tower is unique and somewhat rustic. The room was immaculate and clean, basic but comfortable. The food was simple, well prepared, plentiful, and totally tasty. The...

First off, the only reason to stay here is if you want an amazing view and are into being close to nature. I gave this place a 4 out of 5 because of the eye candy. However, this is geared towards serious birders – which we are not. We only stayed one night, and didn't get a tour included so...

My wife and I stayed at the Canopy Tower for three nights just before Thanksgiving, after having spent the previous three nights at the Canopy Lodge. The Canopy Tower Family arranged for transport between all our stops during the trip and they were punctual, safe and reasonably priced. The Tower isn't luxurious in any way, but it was neat, clean...

My trip to the Canopy Tower was beyond my expectations. The Canopy Tower may not be anyone's idea of a grand hotel, but if you want comfort, delicious food, excellent service and knowledgeable bird guides, you've come to the right place.The Tower does have a certain ambiance, which can be experienced best at 6:00am while standing on the top with...

The Canopy Tower has been on our target travel destination list for many years. This November we spent 5 days at the Tower as part of a Wings tour and it was everything we hoped. Once a U.S. military radar tower, it is situated on a densely forested hill with a view of the Canal. After the turnover, the tower...

The Canopy Tower is a very special place tucked in Parque Nacional Soberania. It's funky and very cozy with clean rooms and a very attentive staff. The observation deck gives an impressive 360 degree view of the surrounding forest stretching all the way to Panama City in the distance. Even from the deck one sees an impressive number of birds...

I was on a quick trip to Panama and last minute decided to take a day trip out here as I love birds. Although it was short notice, the staff was very accommodating and arranged a day tour, including hotel pick up in Panama City. I was surprised to find it was a personal tour with a most excellent guide...
