SOBERANIA NATIONAL PARK, Panama -- A night at nearby Canopy Towers
Ecolodge & Nature Observatory is a must for families with older
Rooms in this former U.S. Air Force radar tower are at treetop
level, no more than 40 feet from the birds. During the night, the
air is filled with the sounds of howler monkeys. At dawn, when the
rain forest awakens, blue cotingas and green shrike-vireos, birds
normally glimpsed high in the tops of trees, perch right outside
the Canopy Tower rooms.
Rates range from $130 to $200 in the dry season (December
through April); from $100 to $145 during the green season (May
through September); and from $110 to $165 during the migration
season (October and November).
Prices are per person, double, and are inclusive, covering meals
(simple, but ample), entrance to the park and two guided walks.
Agents earn 10% commission on bookings.
