Everything about this adventure was wonderful, from the 45-minute hike through the jungle to the treehouse, to the rope-climb up, to hanging out high in the tree, to the climb back down and the hike out. Peter and Jason are excellent hosts. They explained everything we needed to know while we were there and made us feel at home. They... More

If you are in the area, the overnight at Nature Observatorio is a MUST! It was definitely the highlight of our trip. My boyfriend and I decided to stay one night in the tree house which is suspended 80ft up! If you choose this activity, you get to hike the rain forest, learn to tree climb, and enjoy a rare...

You are truly in the middle of the nature, during your short hike and of course up on the tree. We saw many interesting animals during our hike to and from the treehouse, and they are free in the open, far better than any zoo in the world. From the treehouse, we used the binoculars to see two types of... More

This was simply an amazing and unforgettable experience. It is really 3 in 1 adventure - first the hike with great tour guides - Peter and Jason who were showing us all secrets of an unspoiled jungle, then climb up (I was able to climb up easily) and then the night stay at the tree. Words can not describe the... More

Peter and Jason were extremely helpful. They were very encouraging and patient getting us up into the tree house. There house was beautiful, just as expected. Spending the night on our own in the jungle was a real adventure. Hoisting our lovely evening meal up was cool. We were given the option of choosing our food and drink. The meal... More

This trip was a highlight of our grandson's tour of Costa Rica. He is 9. He went up the tree with his father and his only regret was that we hadn't booked for him to stay the night there. He remembered every word Peter said and loved the idea that this was his dream coming true. Totally recommended!

What an amazing experience... one that we'll never forget. You are truly close to nature on the way to and from, and certainly when in, the treehouse. On our hike to and from the treehouse, we saw three types of poison dart frogs (and even held one!!) and a turtle, amazingly, with a tick that had pierced its shell. From... More

Our family of 6 (aged 6 - 46!) visited peter's treehouse today and had a awesome time. 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
