Canopy Tower Hotel

This award winning lodge is found in a tower built in 1965 by the United States Air Force to house a powerful radar used in the defense of the Panama Canal. Nowadays the tower is used more in the defense of the local wildlife.

It has an observation deck just feet from the canopy of the rainforest, so you can see eye to eye with toucans, tanagers, honey creepers and hawks. Get some tips on relaxing from the most chilled out animal in the world, the sloth, see them laze away in the treetops while Tamarins and Mantled Howlers caper past them.

Rooms are set at treetop level where you can keep your animal guide open as you sit in complete comfort with nothing to obstruct your view, watching as nature carries on its morning business. There is also further accommodation in a restored canal zone era house just ten minutes away, which is perfect for families.

From the lodge you can visit legendary Pipeline Road, arguably the best birding location in Mesoamerica.
