“Beautiful views and fascinating facts.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

Well worth tracking down. This is a proper observatory with a very big telescope. Danilo and Cesar are excellent hosts and really know their way around our galaxy. Their passion for astronomy is infectious and are happy to answer all questions. The introductory lecture was amusing and informative and ancient man's use of the stars was thought provoking. Best of all, you get lots of telescope time compared to other tours in San Pedro. I'm going home keen to learn more.
