Canopy Tower Triumphs Again and Again
Puts Panama on the Map for Nature and Birding
You and Your Family Should Go
Congratulations to Canopy Tower and Raul Arias de Para. His amazing Canopy Tower has won more accolades than any other Panama tourism destination.
It doesn’t stop. Among other articles, Canopy Tower was recently featured in Newsweek magazine which has the largest circulation of any news magazine in the US.
Raul is now promoting nature experience tours.
If you and your family haven’t yet been to Canopy Tower, I recommend it. It’s the best nature experience in Panama and according to the international press, one of the best in the world. It’s also close- less than an hour from Panama City. www.canopytower.com Nancy

Open the window of your room and probably less than 40 feet away are hundreds of bird species. “It’s incredible that you have such wilderness so close to the city
Some bird-watchers were saying that here, in a matter of days, they had seen as many species as they had in many other countries on many different occasions combined. The diversity is amazing.”

Every year our family goes to Boquete after Christmas. One of our favorite activities while there is rafting. In the last two years we been privileged to go rafting with Boquete Outdoor Adventures. (BOA) Their staff really outdo themselves to make sure you have a really fun and perfectly enjoyable trip. As we ride those rapids laughing all the way, taking in all the natural scenery I often think how this excursion beats any family experience Disney can offer.
The Boquete area is one of the best areas in the Americas for both rafting and kakaking. The rivers are close and the scenery is beautiful all along the way. BOA picks you up at your hotel at 7 am and get you back around 4 pm.
Many people ask me “Isn’t rafting dangerous?” The answer is that there are different levels of rafting. BOA offers rafting trips for the whole family and also for experts. Kids from age 10 can go. Also it is important you go with a company with an impeccable reputation for safety. BOA, like that other good company, Chiriqui Rafting, has a perfect safety record.
BOA is fully booked lots of the time, so we recommend you make a reservation before you arrive. Find them at
