News - Canopy tours can be an amazing addition to your family vacation to South and Central American destination such as Panama. If you are looking for an adventure travel experience you will never forget, nothing equals these Panama attractions. During these tours you will glide through the treetops, above the crystal clear rivers and ancient waterfalls that comprise the landscape of Panama. One great location to attempt canopy tours is Lago Gatun, the manmade lake that forms a large part of the Panama Canal. Lago Gatun is a large lake covering 164 square miles. With the creation of the lake many hilltops around the Panama Canal became islands. The biggest and best known of them is Barro Colorado Island, home of the world famous Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute. Melia Panama Canal, a luxury resort on the bank of Lago Gatun offers canopy tours of this amazing area. From their website Glide among the treetops on a zip-line crossing Gatun Lake. Two qualified guides accompany guests on all canopy tours and take adventurers through four zip-lines on Isla Bananas, crossing Gatun Lake and finishing right at the Meli Panama Canal pool. (more)

How it Works

A harness and an ultra-resistant steel cable are used to help you defy gravity as you take in the sites and soar through the trees of the Panama area.

Because of the fact that it is just you, a harness, and a cable it is important to make sure every safety precaution is taken. That is why qualified canopy tour operators like Melia Panama Canal are preferred. The equipment and the steel cables that canopy tours use can easily resist the size of any human. The harness supports 2,000 pounds and the cable, 10,000 pounds.

How to Prepare

It is suggested that you where long pants, a sweater, boots or any other type of closed shoe. You want to cover as much exposed skin as possible. Most tours will let you bring a child over six, but it is fair warning that a young child may change their mind once on the platform.

Overall canopy tours can be an amazing thing to share with your family on your tropical Panama vacation or anywhere else in Central and South America. Make sure you prepare and understand exactly what you are getting into before you take on the task, so that you can be assured a great experience.
