Canopy Lodge is a hotel in the verdant foothills of El Valle. Accommodation is next to a stream in the cloud forest canopy right in the centre of the protected area of Cerro Gaital Natural Monument.
The location provides excellent opportunities to observe many tropical species, including the violet-capped hummingbird, social flycatcher, yellow-faced grassquit, and crimson-backed tangers.
All rooms have ceiling fans, with twin, queen or king-size beds, and have a private bathrooms with walk-in showers. Large sliding patio doors open on to either a balcony or terrace with views of the surrounding gardens. There is also a library, a communal lounge, and a restaurant and bar.
Experienced guides are available to enhance the bird watching experience, while a series of zip-wires running across the tree canopy over several cascading waterfalls are an exhilarating experience.
