We arrived at Canopy Tower on February 1st, 2015, for our week long adventure, and were warmly greeted by Carlos and Jenn. After a beautiful lunch we headed off to Summit Ponds with our guide, Michael. He was wonderfully talented, and we saw so many birds on our first afternoon. After two days, our guide was Alexis, who was equally... More

I loved everything about this place, so my rating is not of my experience there but of the property itself, which is quirky, unique, and not the best choice for everyone. The strongest feature is the staff, all of whom were friendly, helpful, and professional. Meals were a pleasure, whether on-site or packed for the field. The location is ideal,... More

The Canopy Tower has an extremely special place in my heart now. It was very hard to leave. You are surrounded by stunning beauty outside every window. For someone who has never traveled to the tropics before, I can't imagine a better introduction to the rainforest. The building itself is an amazing use of an old radar station, making it... More

The Canopy Tower, part of the Canopy Family, is unique in many ways. 360 degree views atop the jungle canopy - observe birds from above without craning your neck... An exceptional staff and comfortable accommodations with traditional Panamanian meals. A true delight within easy reach of Panama City (can be seen from atop the tower) and access to the canal...

You have created a wonderful place and my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Your staff, guides and drivers were all excellent and they love what they do and it shows. It is obvious you have a gift for what you do and love it – always a good combination. Our room was wonderful, great food and our birding... More

We spent 2 nights at the Canopy Tower after visiting the Canopy Lodge. It was a very different experience but enjoyable in its own way. The tower is a former US military facility. It is big and blue and has 10 sides so the rooms go around in a circle and each one is a little piece of the pie.... More

Yes, it is a metal "can." Yes, it is noisy (ear plugs or headphones help when sleeping). Yes, it is remote (hooray!). Yes, there are a lot of stairs (they are good for you unless of course you have an injury or some other medical reason to avoid them). The Tower was exactly as I had imagined from reading all...

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
