This tour was great - its right across the street from Congo Bongo, where we were staying. Peter, our tour guide, picked us up and we made the quick drive to the start of the hiking trail. It was muddy (it rained the night before), but fun - this is a great tour for the outdoorsy, adventurous tourists! The 30... More

One of the highlights of our trip in Puerto Viejo. My husband and I did the tour of this beautiful tree house. Peter and Jason were our guides, both were excellent, they had a good sense of humor and were very knowledgeable. The hike to the tree house was quite easy, you need proper footwear as the trail is a... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed at the treehouse to push our boundaries with our fear of heights. Peter was so great in helping us. He was always calm and gave us the feeling that nothing at all can happen. We were really really scared but Thanks to him and Jason we could overcome our fear and climb the treehouse (even... More

We had read the excellent reviews and with our two sons, 6 and 10 years-old, decided we had to do this. We actually made the trip down to the Southeast coast effectively to stay at Peter's treehouse. It's rare to meet a person who is so committed and passionate- Peter is one of those people. I don't think it' s... More

This was the absolute best part of my trip in Costa Rica, we stayed here and in the Garden House, this is an ecotourists dream. The hike was just as good as the tree house itself too!

We had an incredible experience staying overnight in this remarkable structure suspended on a tree. This is a one of a kind experience that offers a perspective that most people never get: the top of the rainforest. Peter is the real deal - a true expert of his craft (unique building design) and an absolutely passionate naturalist who is on... More

This treehouse connect several great experiences. You can see the really nature, you can help the rain forest. You can sleep there in the wild and hear everything what there live. You became a lot of interesting information about the rainforest. And all experience is safe. All people there are so dear, clever and helpful. I haven`t seen nothing like... More

If I had known it existed it would have been on my bucket list, and should be on any nature lovers list. It was so off the wall, spectacular that it is hard to describe. What can you say about going 80 feet up a rope to a tree house isolated in the jungle, where dinner complete with wine and... More

This is very, very long overdue so apologies for not having done this sooner but this place deserves every word of praise on this website (we were here in June 2014). Without a doubt one of the most memorable and unique experiences of mine and my partner's (quite extensive) travelling lives. The day began with a guided trek through the... More

The highlight of our 2-month trip to Costa Rica with our 2 young kids. We stayed in the tree for a night in April 2015, deep in the primary rainforest. There is nothing like it, it’s the best way to experience raw nature. We saw beautiful toucans just next to our tree and woke up to the beat of the... More
