Many prior reviews duplicate our wonderful experience, so I'll touch on a few other items. First, this is a five story tower that requires a lot of stairs several times a day. There is lodging on the second floor but this still requires going up and down for meals and tower views. If you have trouble with walking, check with...

We stayed 4 nights at the tower on a tour with Field Guides. Superb location allowing views of the top of the jungle canopy with birds and other wildlife in close proximity. Great staff who all went out of their way to be helpful. Had a little difficulty as my Spanish dates to high school and most of the staff...

As soon as we read about the Canopy Tower, we knew we wanted to stay here on our tour of Panama. Whilst we are novices when it comes to birding, we enjoy seeing the birds, learning what they are called and when the opportunity arises photographing them along with any other wildlife there might be. Unfortunately we could only get...

I stopped at Canopy Tower for two days of birding with guide Michael Castro on a "Sapayoa Quest" - a search for the fabled Sapayoa. The Tower was outstanding, the food was excellent and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. Michael Castro has extensive contacts at the Guna Yala indian preserve where the Sapayoa is most frequently seen and...

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...
