The Canopy Tower – Evil Empire Turned Bird Watchers ParadiseThe Canopy  

Implements of control and dominance never last long and here is an example. Originally a radar tower built by the US in order to exert strategic control of the Panama Canal and fight the bloody War on Drugs, the tower is now a place for families to watch birds and experience the mighty rainforest.

You can stay in the repurposed tower. Serious birdwatchers can go out ‘birding’ to prime locations in the local rainforest which are difficult to reach in ordinary circumstances; there they can experience the inestimable thrill of spotting a rare species. In fact, some of the most famous ornithologists in the world regularly come to the Canopy Tower for access to these special spots. There are hammocks to laze-in and an extensive library in the Tower if you wish to have a break from the 360-degree-Observation Deck.
