We walked through the rainforest for about 45 mins and saw poison dart frogs, monkeys, butterflies....then we arrived at the treehouse which is an amazing structure and fascinating to hear about. We all managed to get up, seeing monkeys on the way. Our... More

My wife booked this adventure and I had no real advanced knowledge of what lay ahead. We met Peter and his guide at a local bar in Manzanillo and he drove us 10 minutes into their jungle. From there, we donned his very useful rubber boots due to all of the mud and we hiked for about 45 minutes, stopping... More

Peter is very passionate about what he does and it's very obvious how much he cares about both nature and his clients. For us, it was an amazing experience which I had longed for for a while and it really fullfilled my expectations to the last bit. Being hung 25 meters above ground level and observing the wildlife 'face to... More

My wife and I stayed here on the last night of our "mini honeymoon". It was one of the coolest experiences we have ever had. The wildlife you see is spectacular and the accommodations are surprisingly nice considering the rugged nature of the surroundings. On the hike in we saw many poison dart frogs, a baby fer-de-lance, and lots of... More

We were three friends who spent a night at Peter's treehouse. It was a very memorable experience and we would recommend it to others who would enjoy the view, the novelty, the potential for wildlife sightings and seeing great ecotourism in action. Peter and Jason are a delight-- knowledgeable and gracious hosts. The forest hike is short but beautiful and... More

An awesome experience. Peter is so knowledgeable and passionate about this project and preserve. The tree house is spectacular; both in effect and design/construction.

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
