We had a wonderful time birding at the Rainforest Discovery Center. The canopy tower was fantastic (we recommend getting there first thing in the morning). The fish lunch (only offered on Sunday) was an amazing treat.

Amazing experience! We were able to see a sloth, some monkeys, parrots and hummingbirds. The walk from the visitors centre is smooth and beautiful. Must go for those people that love the forest and for those who had little experience in wild places.

This place has lots to see from the Canopy tower where i observed many bird species you will not see at ground level plus sloth's which were a added bonus. The hummingbird viewing area was fabulous and teeming with several species.

The Panama Rainforest Discovery Center is well worth visiting for three reasons: the tower, the lagoon, and the hummingbirds. The tower lets you watch birds at the top of the canopy. It is best to arrive at daybreak when the birds first become active. There...More
