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. All three locations we visited have our highest recommendation as a stay that makes people feel that they are indeed part of a family. We began our vacation at Canopy Lodge, transferred to Canopy Tower and ended the three week trip at Canopy Camp. This sequence works well for minimal...

My wife and I spent five days going out to different areas of the Soberania National Park in a intensive guided birding experience. Our guide, Danilo, was exceptional, spotting, naming, and helping everyone in the small group see the birds. In five days we saw 167 different birds and 20 mammals. The food was good and plentiful. The room was...

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 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...
