Itinerary

1 Sept. 2022
Canopy Tower

Upon arrival at the airport, you will be met by our drivers who will transfer you to the Canopy Tower, located at the top of Semaphore Hill in the rainforest of Soberanía National Park. For those arriving early, the view from the observation deck provides some incredible Panama birding opportunities! Here, you get a unique eye-level perspective of the rainforest canopy. Many birds in the rainforest, including toucans, parrots, tanagers of various species, hawks, and dozens of others, as well as monkeys, two species of sloth, and other mammals are commonly seen. From this vantage point you can also see ships transiting the Panama Canal, the majestic Centennial Bridge, and miles of rainforest! You may also want to watch the hummingbird feeders at the base of the Canopy Tower for Long-billed Hermit, White-necked Jacobin, Violet-bellied and Blue-chested hummingbirds and White-vented Plumeleteer. Occasionally, a Snowy-bellied Hummingbird is spotted! After this first Panama birding, a welcome dinner will be served.
