We have travelled with the Canopy Family with a birding group two years in a row: last year to Canopy Tower and Canopy Lodge, this year to Canopy Camp. Excellent both times: the guides are super considerate and make sure that every single person sees every single bird. Several of our group were first-timers and they couldn't have been more...

The Canopy Tower and its guides is some of the best in the world. The food is excellent, the people are all friendly, and the birding guides are stellar. This is the gold standard for birding destinations. If you like monkeys and coffee while watching the sunrise over the rainforest then you better book a stay at the Canopy Tower....

I stayed here out of curiosity and found it a place I would love to return. It is a wonderfully retro-fitted structure that fits wildlife watching really well. Very comfortable lodging and excellent meals. Friendly, attentive staff. Whether you are a serious birder or not you will enjoy this place. Don't forget your binoculars and camera. The guides are excellent...

The Canopy Tower puts you right at eye-level with the birds and monkeys that frequent the treetops around the Tower. Its unique round design offers a 360-degree view of the spectacular surroundings. Be aware that you do have to climb steps to reach the top, but there are hand rails and it's not too taxing, plus you can always stop...

The site is an oldUS radar tower in the former Canal Zone area, inside a Panamanian National Park. It's been remodeled and is now an unusual hotel. You have to be good at climbing stairs to stay here. Rooms are on the second and third floors, a library and dining area are on the fourth floor. On the roof you...

Not a luxury hotel or gourmet restaurant, but birders don't need that, they need birds and opportunities to see them. Can't do better than Canopy Tower, with the bonus of top flight guides, friendly and accommodating staff, and food and service that perfectly complement the adventure of birding Panama.

My wife and I stayed at the Canopy Tower in conjunction with a Sierra Club trip. The idea was for the Canopy Tower to serve as a base for our daily nature outings. We couldn't have been happier with how things turned out. The Tower is a unique hotel in an incredible setting. Sleeping rooms and the dining room are...

Canopy Tower is a unique hotel and birding site. Canopy Family is for birders. That being said, Canopy Tower caters to birders and if you see the mammals, amphibians, reptiles, butterflies it is a bonus. You go on tours with other birders and your guide will ensure that he/she points all the birds that they can. If you are there...

We recently experienced an outstanding vacation with the Canopy family.
