#403 Romantic Escape (11 days)

Day 1:  Meet and transfer from Tocumen International Airport to the Canopy Tower, located in an impressive rainforest atop Semaphore Hill within Soberanía National Park, 35 miles north of Panamá City in the Republic of Panamá: The Canopy Tower is a prime location from which to observe the birds and other wildlife of the forest canopy. Because the birds and mammals are at eye level, it is common to get fantastic views otherwise nearly impossible from the ground.

You don’t have to leave the Tower to find birds; you don’t even have to leave your bedroom! Tanagers and Tityras can be seen right from your window, and you don’t have to worry about the rain. The dining area and the roof of the tower are better for finding elusive canopy birds, as well as Mantled Howlers, Geoffroy’s Tamarins and other mammals and birds, as you can scan in all directions. And all this without having to venture away from the Tower!

Lunch and  Dinner included.

Day 2 & Day 3: There are specialized optional tours offered for visitors who are interested in things other than birds. Please check the Vacation Packages at the Canopy tower and, specifically, these tours: Birds and History, Panama’s Natural and Cultural History, Tamarin Tour (mainly mammals) and Introduction to Nature Photography. Enjoy two days in pure nature!
