Arriving well after dusk and in the rain, Peter was kind enough to meet us at the stop and escort us to the local cabina that he had arranged for us for our night before our treehouse experience.

Without a doubt Peters treehouse was a life changing experience. He is unbelievably knowledgable about the jungle...taking the time to talk to me about the importance of preserving primary forest. The house itself is magical. Howler monkeys, toucans, morpho butterflies, red frogs just to name a few things you see! You would be crazy not to do this! I will... More

One of my favorite adventures in the jungle. Peter and Jason are absolutely lovely and I adore the concept of the treehouse..where Peter created a great spot to watch the Wilde life without damaging the nature. It's a beautiful and exciting trip through the jungle with an incredible view.
