I was lucky enough to visit the Eco-Observatory last week. As soon as we came through the entrance I was struck by how pretty it looked. The viewing platform and main house are stunning in themselves, only outdone by the amazing birds we saw in every direction.

David is a charming host and it is clear that he is knowledgeable and passionate about his business. The quality and care and attention to detail is evident wherever you look. I can only hope I get the oppotunity to visit Costa Rica again so I can fit in a special stop here.

A week or so ago I stopped by the Eco-Observatory as I knew it was newly opened and I had heard that it was great for birds and photo ops. All that I heard was true. This place is right off the main road, which you may think is bad...but here it isn't. A short walk from the road and the property gardens open up and road noise is all but canceled out. A walk of 100m or so (with birding possibilities all around) leads you to the observation platform where road noise is virtually absent. The platform itself looks out over the grounds and there are some feeding stations right in the photographic (and viewing) sweet spot down below. The trees around the platform can be very birdy too.
If you are heading through Sarapiqui and looking for birds and pictures, I highly recommend a stop at the Eco-Observatory...just make sure your batteries are charged.
