My wife and I have visited Canopy Tower in the past for birding and loved it. This trip was a twist. We took our 13/14 year old grandson for a nature/history/culture trip - exposing him to all new adventures. Worked with Christian Abrago in the Panama City office (very helpful) to design a customized 4 1/2 day experience. Look thru... More

Yes, for viewing wildlife and birds it is unsurpassed. We arrived there, went straight to the top viewing area and were several feet away from a sloth. Awesome!! In the early evening we saw a King Vulture. Also saw toucans, it is incredible. But it comes at a huge price tag. We paid about $3500 for 3 of us. We... More

My husband and I did the 5 day package during the green season which I highly recommend. The location is exquisite. We were surrounded by a large variety of birds and mammals. Canopy tower is quiet and serene. The setting is pure rain forest where ever you look. The lodging is very nice too. We loved the top viewing area... More

I spent 7 days at Canopy Tower with their standard birding package. The tower puts you right where much of the Panama wildlife lives. There were sloths outside the lobby/dining room window for all but a few hours of the week. There were Howler Monkeys nearby everyday and one day, while we were eating lunch, they were right outside the... More

A retired US RADAR station, this now converted eco-lodge boasts some of the best wildlife viewing in the tropics. Three floors of viewing opportunities including the rooms you stay in (we had two-toed and three-toed sloths, Geoffrey's Tamarin, and Howler Monkeys point blank from our room windows), the second floor dining and lounge room, and the top floor rooftop patio...

If you enjoy getting off the beaten track, love birds then this is the place for you. The team were so knowledgeable and were able to identify everything which was spotted. We were not on a package basis which makes the tours quite expensive but they were all enjoyable. There were 3 other guests with us during our time at... More

This was my fourth stay at the Canopy Tower - I obviously love it! Although only 20 minutes from Panama City, it is a world away, hidden deep in a lush rain forest. When I am there, I feel completely immersed in the natural world, with all the conveniences of civilization - such as truly excellent meals, private and clean... More

Merged on a rain forest, Canopy Tower is a wonderful place for wildlifewatching. Without leaving canopy tower you can see a large number of bird species, mammals, butterflies, and others. On the surroundings there are also very good places with other kinds of habitat. The food was delicious, the staff always very attentiv to your needs and desires. The rooms... More

We stayed the first night at the Canopy Tower with Nando and Domi as our guides for this location and the Darien Camp. Amazing trip, 105 species of birds & 13 mammal species (4 species of monkeys).
