Overview

About Canopy Tower Ecolodge and Nature Observatory

Bird watching hotel from Radar tower in Panama

Facebook
Built in 1965 by the United States Air Force to house radar used in the defense of the Panama Canal, the tower was demilitarized and transferred to Panamá in 1996. Dominating the roof is the 30 foot (10m) high geotangent dome with an observation deck surrounding it from which you can see the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal and the skyline of Panama City.

The top floor is used as the main dining area, and is completely surrounded by panoramic windows. The second and first floors provide the living space with ensuite bathrooms and large windows to observe lower levels of the forest canopy.

It provides unique, close-quarter, views of rainforest birds in the tree canopy.

My wife and I stayed at Canopy Tower in January, 2004, and had a wonderful time. The rooms are small, but comfortable. The food is great. The top floor lounge/dining room was a great place to hang out with other birders. And the views from the tower are simply amazing. Friendly and knowledgable guides were available to lead tours to a variety of bird and animal watching locales. There are also great hiking trails around the tower. If you want to wake up to Howler Monkeys, add to your birdwatching life list, or share a Twizzler with a coatimundi, Canopy Tower is a great place to stay.
