Cocle Province - El Valle
Canopy Lodge

The Canopy Lodge is a full service lodge specializing in nature tourism, particularly birds. It's one of the best sites for Panama birding anywhere in the country. It is about 60 miles west of Panama City in the picturesque village of El Valle de Anton, right in the center of a gigantic crater of an extinct volcano. This is the largest inhabited crater in the Western Hemisphere and second only to the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania. It is surrounded by the Cerro Gaital Natural Monument.


The facilities of the Canopy Lodge are new and well planned, the rooms are spacious and airy with views of the lovely grounds.  The Canopy Lodge offers 12 single or double rooms and 2 Suites.


At the Canopy Lodge you will be served three daily meals. Each meal features fresh and local ingredients and vary every day. Water and fruit juices are always included with the meal.  Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served at the outside but sheltered dining room with magnificent views of the surrounding forest. At the dining table you will also have the opportunity to get to know the other bird watchers staying at the Canopy Lodge.

What should I bring for my visit? Mid-December to May is the dry season in Panama. We receive very little rain, and the days are beautifully sunny and breezy. Outdoor clothing, preferably made of cotton, of neutral colors to blend with the surroundings and facilitate wildlife observation. You may ask, what are neutral colors? Well, think of a Hawaiian shirt, the opposite of that is attire of neutral colors. For dinner, we like to dress up a bit, nothing fancy, something in between Bermuda shorts and a dinner jacket. Please bring a good hat to shade your head from the strong, near-equatorial sun. 

If you come during the period of May to early January, bring rain gear; an umbrella might also come in handy. Rubber boots are not necessary since we will not be crossing any streams, but an extra pair of sneakers or hiking shoes/boots is advised since some trails have plenty of mud. A pair of sandals to wear around the tower is also a good idea. Insect repellent is also highly recommended for your walks in the forest. Hair dryers are provided.

A good pair of binoculars is a must, even if you are not a birdwatcher. There are plenty of other critters to look for. We recommend Leica equipment. Our guides use this brand and it is excellent. Finally, we have a Leica 77mm scope available on the observation veranda, but if you have one bring it anyway -- having an extra scope never hurt anybody.
