          My husband and I are Canadians who are booked into the Panama Canopy Tower for 10 days of birding in February. Could you tell us what, if any vaccines you got before going to the PCTower. We are going with WINGS which is an American birding company, so I was curious what health precautions you took as Canadians. Also, any other information that you wanted to share with us about the Tower would be great. Thanks for your help. Canadians, Angela and Dan Brouwer

          What is the standard tipping policy for staff and bird guide? My husband I are going to the Lodge and Tower in July. Do we tip the bird guide at the end of the day or the end of the trip. Normally is it one or two guides that accompany the group throughout the trip? Should I be concern about snakes, do I need snake gaiters? How much for laundry services? Thanks!
