My husband and I went with a birding group to Panama this month, and we spent 4 nights at Canopy Tower. Canopy Tower provided our bird guides and all our meals, both of which were excellent! All the guides could not have been more cheerful, helpful, and expert. The Tower is in the jungle, at the top of a hill.... More

We stayed here for several nights and it is right in the middle of a rainforest. We woke up to sounds of Howler monkeys and had a sloth in the tree right outside the window to our room. They have done an amazing job renovating this old 1960's radar tower into the eco-friendly lodge that it is today. Very nice... More

Traveled solo 2002 . It is an outstanding bird-watching site. You are among the trees. Read in travel book, bring earplugs as howler monkeys can be loud. Did not find this to be problem. Eco friendly. Beds with netting. Unique experience Meals excellent. Library available in the towers for birdwatchers. I was lucky to be traveling with experienced birders. One... More

It's rare to visit a place that tops all your expectations, but that's what happened. Yara, from Canopy, helped to plan the trip to perfection. I visited the Tower, the Lodge and the B&B. The guides are exceptionally professional and they truly love what they do. They were also very helpful in pointing out all the animals and birds I... More

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
