I never knew the canopy was so special, what an outstanding vantage point.

Tranquilo Bays latest eco-adventure soars 100’ above sea level; bringing guests to the top of the forest canopy for a panoramic birds-eye view of three distinctly different ecosystems within Bastimentos National Marine Park. The bird watching, wildlife and photo opportunities from this incredible vantage point are truly sublime.
Tranquilo Bay’s new canopy wildlife observation tower is complete and in service. Tranquilo Bay built the tower to fulfill the needs of birding and wildlife enthusiasts who desire access to the most exciting and vibrant part of the forest, the canopy. It is here where birds openly feed on fruits and seeds, monkeys forage in treetops, iguanas seek energy from the sun, sloths laze within the trees, and constrictors search for their next meal. The biodiversity at Tranquilo Bay is incredible, but there is only so much that can be seen from the ground. The tower gives visitors a vantage point of the canopy that is just not possible from below. There is a completely different world once one emerges from the canopy with so much to explore, Tranquilo Bay hopes guests will enjoy the view.
Tranquilo Bay’s two most overlooked features are its amazing location and superior facilities. Situated on 200 heavily forested acres of Panama’s Western Caribbean Coast and surround by three distinct ecosystems, biodiversity and wildlife thrive. If one is into eco-adventures such as birding and wildlife watching, hiking, snorkeling the coral reef, kayaking or forest ecology, he should be prepared for the experience of a lifetime. The deluxe cabana is the perfect exploration base camp; from here, there are days’ worth of excursions to keep one enveloped in the forest and ocean.
The wildlife and views of the forest canopy from the tower are absolutely incredible, but the natural history lesson alone is worth the ascent. From Volcan Baru’s 11,400’ peak in the cloud forest of the Talamanca mountain range, down the slope of Western Panama to the coral reefs beneath the Caribbean’s surface, every life zone known to the tropics can be seen from this single vantage point above the forest’s canopy.
The tower was designed to be extremely safe and user friendly, so that it may easily be enjoyed by bird watchers and wildlife enthusiasts of all ages. The structure, designed to endure the toughest conditions, was constructed using a hot dip galvanized steel framework, treated southern pine lumber, stainless steel and brass hardware. Craftsman finishes such as smooth sanded wooden handrails, standard residential stair pattern and elevated guardrails, insure that everyone’s hands, feet and mind feel right at home.
