Our Lodging & Activities
Canopy Tower Family has two award-winning birding lodges, the Canopy Tower, not far from Panama City in Soberanía National Park, and the Canopy Lodge, in the hills of El Valle de Antón. Both offer world-class, unique birding and natural history experiences, led by friendly, knowledgeable bilingual guides.
The Canopy Tower features rooms and an observation deck mere feet from the canopy of the rainforest, virtually at eye-level with such avian treats as toucans, tanagers, honeycreepers and hawks, as well as amazing looks at two- and three-toed sloths and Geoffroy’s Tamarins and Mantled Howlers, two monkey species otherwise nearly impossible to see this well! From the Canopy Tower you can visit legendary Pipeline Road, arguably the best birding location in Mesoamerica, and other very birdy sites.
From the Canopy Lodge, with a veranda that overlooks the garden feeders and rooms nestled among gardens by a creek, you may go on outings to Cerro Gaital, La Mesa, Las Minas or other sites notorious for Caribbean-slope specialties.
We also have a beautifully restored Canal Zone-era house that is our Canopy Bed & Breakfast. It is perfect for families and is walking distance from Pipeline Road and just 10 minutes from the Canopy Tower.
And, of course, you may enjoy our Canopy Adventure zip-line & nature trail, just a short walk from the Canopy Lodge. Both the Canopy Lodge and the Canopy Adventure are just 2 hours from Panama City!
So, yes, please come experience for yourself why Newsweek proclaimed, “Today, a stay at the Canopy Tower is one of the premier ecotourism experiences in the world.” We are looking forward to your visit soon!
Best wishes and happy birding,
