The Canopy Hotel is designed to be a birdwatcher’s paradise. At the top of the tower you can visit the observation deck, which is 50 feet (15 m) above the ground and looks out over the top of the canopy. From here, you can see boats navigating the distant canals. Look for birds like toucans, parrots, cotingas, trogons, manakins, and hummingbirds. Wildlife doesn’t end with birds — look down to see coatis, agoutis, and anteaters on the surrounding trails. You can also expect to see blue morphos butterflies flitting around the tower. For more variety, visit some of the nearby orchid gardens.
There’s a common area with ample seating including comfortable hammocks. Next to the window you’ll find handy binoculars. In the common room you can help yourself to an extensive library of birding books. The Canopy also offers Wi-Fi and a public computer.
