Our finest accommodation, the Blue Cotinga Suite, is on the second floor, 28 feet (8.5 meters) above the hilltop, right in the busiest part of the Canopy. It is furnished and sized generously, 366 square feet (34 meters square), and has a private bath with shower. There is a hammock, desk, and a hanging chair on the veranda. This is the only veranda on the Tower, and offers unparalleled views of the bird life and, at night, the kinkajou feeding in the canopy. More
