Bird Lovers Canopy Tower

Ecolodge & Nature Observatory

3 night/ 4 day package

Panama has some of the most easily accessed forests anywhere in the tropics. The Canopy Tower is located on top of Semaphore Hill, in a well preserved semi deciduous tall forest in the heart of Soberania National Park . It is at an altitude of 900 feet above sea level, and from its roof you can see the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal and the skyline of Panama City , just 30 minutes away. Its privileged position makes ideal as a base from which to start exploring the forests of central Panama , as well as the Canal and other historical attractions. At the base of the road up Semaphore Hill is Plantation Road , a good, easy graded dirt road where you can walk through more than three miles of mature forest. A ten minute drive takes you to the gate of the famous Pipeline Road which runs for 11 miles through wetter forests in the heart of Soberanía National Park .
