Tranquilo Bay’s canopy observation tower was opened in 2014 and since then it has been a great addition to the different alternatives the lodge place offers. The amazing view along with the nightly Red-lored parrot (Amazona autumnalis) commute are some of the guaranteed experiences. Some times, we see different species of animals, like White-faced capuchin Monkeys (Cebus capuchinus) or the raptor migration, when Broad-winged Hawks (Buteo platypterus) and Swainson´s Hawks (Buteo swainsoni) fly over Bastimentos Island by hundreds or thousands.
At Tranquilo Bay we have seen and heard over 200 different species of birds, from those 126 have been seen or heard from the tower. Ramon and I put together a list of the different bird species we have seen and/or heard from the tower, to give you an idea of how diverse and abundant the tower can be.
