1. The guides are amazing: Socially skilled, warm and professional. 2. The food: Great variation, and just really fresh food. And you get dessert after every dinner! 3. The building: Having a cup of tea on the roof at 05.30 in the morning with the sounds of the rainforest is really something. 4. The feeling: We felt at home here... More

Travelling to Panama for the first time and solo I wasn't sure what to expect. I just know I wanted to do it safely and for there to be a lot of birds! Elba, from Canopy, was incredibly helpful in planning my trip so it met (and exceeded) both those expectations. They provide transport from the airport to the Tower... More

In July, during the 'Green Season', my husband and I spent a fabulous time at Canopy Tower and Canopy Lodge. We had arranged the Tamarin Mammal Tour followed by the Historic and Cultural Tour with a few extra days for birding. Raquel in Reservations was extremely helpful in planning our tours and we are grateful to her as she altered... More

At the 2013 Rio Grande Birding Festival, we met Carlos Bethancourt, Marketing Manager and Senior Guide for the Canopy Family. We took his recommendations and decided the world famous Canopy Tower would be our destination for our first international and first tropical bird and butterfly trip. We couldn't be more pleased. We booked the Blue Cotinga suite for the week... More

My husband and I have just returned from the Canopy Family package 'the Best of Central Panama', which included seven nights at the Canopy Tower. We very much enjoyed staying in this unique accommodation. Going up to the observation deck at dawn was just magical. Our room (Cotinga suite) was spacious and clean with good views, the Lodge staff were... More

On a scale of 1-10 our trip was an 11. Canopy Tower is an ideal spot for great birding, hospitality and lodging. We are five friends who wanted to bird a lot. Domi was our super guide and he knows exactly where and how to find the birds - we saw/heard 265 species in our week. Domi knows all the... More

We spent two weeks at the Lodge & the Tower at the end of April and enjoyed every minute. The food at both places was excellent, the guides were brilliant & helpful as were the staff who cleaned and cooked! Our room at the Lodge was enormous & comfortable and at the Tower we were fortunate to have the Harpy... More

We came the middle of June on a 7 day package to see the endemic birds of Panama. There were birding trips every morning and afternoon with a siesta time in between. Food was excellently prepared, lots of fruit and vegetables, interesting meat sauces and not spicy. It took me 24hrs to adapt to the climate; it was hot and... More

I spent 5 days at the Canopy Tower at the end of March and as a birdwatcher, it was heavenly. Most of the other reviews are very accurate. I stayed in a single room, which was small, but comfortable. There is a bit of interior noise as the doors to the room are made of wooden slats like a window... More

My husband and I just returned from a weeks stay at Canopy Tower in Gamboa, Panama. What a tremendous trip! We chose the "Birds of Canopy Tower" 7 night package and it was everything promised on the website and more. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the food was great. We met lots of interesting fellow birders during our... More
