We spent four days and nights at this secluded and very private tented camp and loved every minute. We were on a bird trip but the monkeys stole our hearts. Geoffroys Tamarins and White Faced Capuchins visit the feeding tables and your own porch if you're lucky. Hummingbirds

There are so many “Excellent” reviews here that it is hardly necessary to add another, but I will just second many of the things that have been said. We had excellent knowledgeable professional guiding (in our case by Eliecer), delicious food, comfortable accommodations,

Thank you for your review - we are so glad that you had a wonderful time at the Canopy Camp! Congratulations on the Harpy Eagle, we are sure it created some lifelong memories. Its true, visiting in the "green season" generally is not a concern with the rain, and has many benefits. We hope to see you again in Panama.

Hello from the Canopy Family! Thank you for your question. Our 7-night, all-inclusive Birds of Canopy Camp Darien package includes lodging, meals and all tours, including the tour to see the Harpy Eagle and the newly found Crested Eagle nest. If you have requested a modified itinerary, please consult with our reservations department to clarify which tours you have included or excluded, or are at an additional cost. Generally, our guests book the week-long package which is hassle-free, all you need to do is get to Panama and let us take care of the rest! Gratuities to the guides and staff are not included in the all-inclusive rate, so budgeting to bring additional funds for gratuities would be much appreciated by our guides and staff who work hard to give you the best experience possible! Thank you again for your question and we look forward to seeing you in Panama!

Hello from Panama and thank you for your question! Apart from the standard gear, we recommend you bring a reusable water bottle to refill throughout your tour. We have plenty of drinking water available at the Canopy Camp. A headlamp for around camp after dark (and extra batteries) - having a "hands-free" option is very helpful. Sun protection (sunscreen and a wide-brimmed hat) is very important, and February is the dry season in Panama so there is not much rain to be expected, but a compact waterproof jacket or poncho is never a bad idea. While closed shoes or hiking boots are required for in the field, a light pair of sandals for around camp are recommended. See you in February!

Hello, Canopy Camp is accessible by car along the Panamerican Highway. We offer a 7-night all-inclusive birding and nature package at the Canopy Camp. We require a minimum 4-night stay at the Canopy Camp due to its distance from Panama City (~ 5 hour drive). The main activity focus at the Canopy Camp is birding, as Darien is a hotspot for many regional endemics not found anywhere else. Of course there is other wildlife and culture to see there, but our tours focus primarily on birding. Thank you for your questions!
