Bird-watchers, or those who want to get their eco-fix without venturing too far into the jungle, will feel right at home at this small inn, set at treetop level on a mountain in the middle of Parque Nacional Soberanía (a 30-minute drive from Panama City). Occupying a five-story former radio tower, it has 12 breezy guest rooms with basic furnishings, ceiling fans, netting-draped beds, and big windows that look out at the surrounding rainforest. The top floor has panoramic views and is used as the main dining room; the roof deck above is the perfect place to perch with binoculars and spy Blue Cotingas, Green Shrike-Vireos, and Great Tinamous. The property offers tours with bilingual bird guides, maps of the best birding spots in the area, and an extensive library of bird books.
