My TLC Birding Tours group spent a fantastic week at the Canopy Lodge. This exquisite property, built alongside a year- round steam, has all the amenities one needs for a very enjoyable stay. The meals were some of the very best we had in Panama. The rooms are big and airy, with a private balcony from which to watch the... More

I would give this a higher rating if I could. Tha guides we're amazing and they made sure everyone saw the birds no matter what their level of experience. Good food and great rooms. I had been to Ecuador before but still got 118 new lifers. Different trips each day. There really was no downside

Our family group of 7 (grown children and spouses) recently returned from Panama after a 3 day stay at the Canopy Lodge, as well as other destinations. The Canopy Lodge was the highlight of our trip. It's located at about 2,000' ASL, so early morning temperatures were in the low 60's and daytime highs in the 80's. No AC needed--just... More

This is a gorgeous property. The rooms are comfortable, sparely furnished and very attractively decorated. We were comfortable in the room and slept well, but the really early risers 0400 or so, were extremely audible. The food was very good and nicely presented. The setting encouraged friendly conversation and made for good company. The guides were exceptional. This is a... More

We loved this place! The rooms are quite spacious, well maintained, clean, with comfortable beds. Food was quite good: Panamanian with some western elements. The Sunday dinner was amazing (book a Sunday!) and the communal seating encourages a friendly atmosphere and conversation among guests. The birding tours and hikes were very well organized, and the only issue we had (water... More

We spent several nights at Canopy Tower before coming here and I was not prepared for the difference. While Canopy Tower is spartan, Canopy Lodge is luxurious! Huge rooms, nice size bathrooms, balconies with seating. Great beds. Food was very good. The setting is beautiful. It's on a stream on a large property with trails. Birds are all over. We... More

Since we could not get more than 5 consecutive nights at the Canopy Tower, we chose to book another 6 nights at the Canopy Lodge for our 11 day birding tour (See Tower review "What an Experience"). Thus, we had just come from the Tower deep in the jungle to the lodge nestled in the rain forest at the steps... More

"Oh, you have to stay at Canopy Lodge sometime in your life," some birders told us one time. And so that's what we did. This was our second trip to Panama and it was time to visit El Valle. Because we had stayed at the Canopy B&B on our last trip we were able to get a discount and a... More

We were scheduled to stay with Canopy Lodge in November and had to make some changes due to health issues. Raquel from Canopy Lodge couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating as we made adjustments to our plan. We can't wait to visit, but their kindness and professionalism compelled us to write this review in advance of the trip! Seems... More

The Canopy Lodge in El Valle, Panama, is a unique and lovely destination. Modern, beautiful architecture and stunning rooms, all open to the cool mountain air and the lovely grounds and streams, are just one part of the experience. The marvelous birding guides, Carlos , Danilo, Alexis and Moyo were so amazing in their ability to show us the wonderful... More
