CLIMB UP. LOOK AROUND.
The wildlife and views from the tower are incredible, but the natural history lesson alone is worth the climb. All life zones known to the tropics, from the mountains to the coral reefs below the ocean's surface are visible from the Canopy Tower. This vantage point above the forest's canopy gives you a bird's-eye view of the entire archipelago.
