This place was amazing! The walk to get there was very cool where we saw several frog species. Getting up to the tree house was an unforgettable adventure, and the dinner and night spent in the treehouse was a once in a lifetime experience. I already want to go back! Our kids had a blast and will remember this for the rest of their lives. This part of Costa Rica is so amazing! We have traveled a lot of places in the world and this is one of our favorites. It is totally worth the money and the experience. He built the treehouse so that the tree would no be damaged at all. It was invigorating to be in the canopy overnight. I am really missing the sounds of howler monkeys right now and nature. Costa Rica is an amazing country! Don’t let a pandemic stop you from traveling there!!!

This was deffinitely a "once in a lifetine" experience! The adventure started with a guided hike through the primary jungle. The guide, Peter, knows all about fauna and flora. He showed and explained me everything. His love and passion for nature is totally catching and makes the trip even more thrilling! I loved the climbing part which was surprisingly easy. I took my time and I enjoyed the view while getting up there. The first animal I could observe from the platform was a huge sloth scratching herself forever, while hanging 25 meters over the ground. I couldn't believe the ecxellent dinner I got up in the Treehouse even with a nice cold beer AND Peter surprised me with a Snickers bar!! That was a real nice surprise!! :-) The ambiente when the sun went down and the jungle noises set in was undiscribable. This jungle is bursting with life! Later I enjoyed the luxury of an actual fresh shower up in the treehouse before I went upstairs to the romantic cosy bed. In the morning they served me a stunning breakfast with fresh hot coffee, cereals, fruits, eggs, toast and jus. It was unbelievable! Nothing could have been any better! ... Maybe it can be a "twice in a life time"... I sure hope so! Thank you Peter, Theo and team. I loved it!

Highly Recommended! Everything starts with a nice jungle tour with a very good guide due to his knowledge and his experience. A funny tree-climbing with the ropes. Unforgettable moments, especially in the night. Tree home is better than any 5-star hotel. The combination of the beautiful accommodation and the guide like Peter, made Nature Observatorio our highlight of Costa Rica.

Manzanillo, Costa Rica1 contribution1 helpful vote
We've lived in the area and have traveled all over Costa Rica and the rest of Central America for nearly 7 years now and without a doubt this experience has been our favorite. We just wish we had done it much sooner! Peter is very kind, patient, and clearly a nature enthusiast. He lead us through the beautiful primary forest, pointing out so many interesting details. We saw so many different types of frogs, snakes, birds, monkeys, insects, and more. We learned about many of the plants and their relationships with each other and their environment. Peter is active in protecting this beautiful forest, and while walking through the dense jungle you are so thankful that he does! Once we arrived at the treehouse we were blown away by its design and engineering. Pulling yourself up by the ropes is exhilarating and once at the top you're blown away by the beautiful view of the jungle canopy and ocean. Jan, who helped from the top, was fun and interesting. Also a nature enthusiast, and particularly knowledgable in snakes, he had so many great stories and information to share. Our boys, ages 9 and 11, absolutely loved this experience. We really look forward to visiting again, and next time spending a night in the treehouse. Thank you Peter and Jan for the incredible experience!
