One would be hard pressed to find a better place to do some serious birding and enjoy a unique experience at this remarkable eco-lodge. The local guides know their birds! It was impressive to hear them make bird calls and they know the best places to bird. The accommodations are basic but comfortable enough. The food was very good, with... More

We were here with a birding tour company and found the whole experience to be wonderful. The guides were excellent, knew where to find the birds, how to call them in for us to see and could pick out birds just by hearing their calls. The food is very good, no complaints. Please note that you must be able to... More

Everything about my seven day stay at Canopy Tower was positive. The staff members with whom I had contact were most helpful, knowledgeable, and professional. Customer service is obviously a priority with the Canopy Family, and I always felt that staff members were doing all in their power to make my stay a positive experience for me. All of the... More

I find it diifficult to give the Canopy Tower a review that does it justice. It certainly occupies a very unique location inside Soberanía National Park. The wildlife- and birdwatching in the vicinity are spectacular. We had great sightings, especially along Pipeline Road and Semaphore Hill Road, which are close by (Semaphore Road actually leads right to the Canopy Tower).... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our property; all reviews, whether positive or negative are welcome, to ensure we continuously improve our products and service. Canopy Tower is a former US Air Force radar station, that being one of our attractions in itself, along with the birds. We have never claimed to be a 7-star... More

This is an amazing and quite unique place to stay and if you are interested in birds it is a must. The guides are brilliant especially Michael who is probably one of the best guides I've ever come across. You must be able to do stairs as it is all arranged around a circular building with bedrooms on the second... More

Other reviewers have summarized the physical description of Canopy Tower. It is a unique place to stay. Ability to handle stairs easily is a requirement, but our accommodations were clean with all the necessities provided. As advertised, there are differences in the room sizes, but Harpy Eagle (including a private bathroom) was very nice. The buffet-style meals were filling and... More

I'm a bird watcher so this was a wonderful experience for me. The birding guides are truly outstanding. We made 2 trips a day from the Tower and saw hundreds of bird species along with other wildlife. I've been to other birding "resorts" before, so was expecting the spartan accommodations. I had a single room (about the size of a... More

I spent 17 days in Panama and my trip was capped off with an exciting 3 nights at the Canopy Tower! When I first arrived, I was met by Jenn, who warmly welcomed me and showed me around the tower and explained what to expect. My room was very comfortable and well appointed with all of the necessities. I especially... More

Canopy Tower is heaven on wings for both amateurs and professionals. The guides not only know their birds, they have eagle eyes to spot them, and really want you to look at them through their scopes. I am awed by their ability to talk to the birds (just how many bird songs can one know) and their honest enthusiasm. Accommodations... More

What an experience! I was with my wife and young daughter, the explorer,the birder. We arrived mid-day and had to dodge white Nose Coati's on the way. The facility is a really neat converted US Military radar tower stationed in the middle of the jungle. Sure, it's not a thing beauty but my mom would say it has very good... More
