My review is primarily focused on the hotel facility, not the birding experience, which is very good. When we visited, guests from Australia, Germany, the UK and the US declared the birding to be excellent and their experiences to be memorable. The naturalist guides were excellent, both knowledgeable and accommodating. If you are an avid birder, Canopy Tower is not...

We stayed at Canopy Tower for 3 nights in early November. We experienced great birding from the observation deck, along the road and excursions with our guide Jen who was excellent at finding and identifying birds and butterflies. The rooms were clean and comfortable, even though it was hot and humid in Panama there was plenty of airflow throughout the...

We have been on tours in Costa Rica, Belize, Honduras and Trinidad but known as well done as our experience at the Canopy Tower and Canopy Lodge. Our friends asked us to rate this trip from 1 to 10 we both told them it was a 20. Our guide was Jennifer S. who was extremely knowledgable, willing to help in...

We had the pleasure of spending 6 nights at the Canopy Tower in September 2016. Wow! We often have unreasonably high expectations for a new natural history location. But even so, the place exceeded our dreams. Fabulous canopy birding as you'd expect, but ground and mid level viewing as well. Sloths, Tamarins, Howlers, Coatis, Oh My! Guided trips day and...

I recently spent three nights at the tower. It is a GREAT place for viewing birds and sloths. The standard rooms are on the first level(one above ground floor) and was where I was. Very clean and comfortable, but bathroom was shared by others on that floor. The shower and toilet were separate rooms. It wasn't a problem. There are...

I'll never forget the four days I recently spent at Canopy Tower. It was heaven, to wake at dawn and sip coffee on the upper deck of this former radar tower, looking out at the rain forest canopy and spotting three-toed sloths, monkeys, and astonishingly beautiful tropical birds. Until my stay there, I had no idea how remarkable an experience...

The Canopy Tower is one of the most spectacular birding destinations we've ever seen. A repurposed USAF radar tower, it has been remodeled with loving care into a comfortable place to stay and observe the birds and other wildlife that inhabit the rain forest canopy of Soberanía National Park near Panama City. Our first day we were treated to a...

It is unique to stay in this tower where you are above treetop level on the roof deck! 0530 morning concerts by howler monkey groups. Tucans and lots of other colorful birds visiting the tree tops around. I was there only 2 nights in end of June 2016, but could stay there for a week without any problems of beeing...

We came to the Canopy Tower for a day visit, since we were staying at the Canopy B&B in Gamboa (also part of the Canopy Family). This is an amazing birding place, no wonder it's listed as one of the top birding locations worldwide. From the top level you can have superb views of canopy birds, difficult to see from...

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...
