I have been an outdoor educator since 1992 and it has become my passion. I am the founder and owner of one of the largest outdoor education companies in Costa Rica, where we offer canyoning, sea kayaking, multi-day jungle expeditions, tree camping, and climbing adventures. My other passion is to share how amazing one feels when sleeping up in a tree with breathtaking views right out of your tent's windows. This is something that you must try, at least one time in your life.

We cannot thank Javier and Fernando and their family enough for this wonderful, one of a kind experience. Coming to Costa Rica for 10 days, we wanted to see as much of the beautiful country as we could and when we saw this experience, we knew we had to include it in our visit. There hadn't been a date within our trip available, but I reached out to Javi and he graciously accommodated and made one available to us. Javi was awesome with communication and updates the day of. When we arrived, he gave us some background on the area, encouraged us to check out the town of Golfito, let us know where to park, and gave us a guided tour up through the rainforest to our tent and campsite that he personally set up earlier the same day. We had time to enjoy the campsite and scenery on our own and Fernando brought us a delicious authentic homecooked meal later that evening. We fell asleep in a tent in the trees to all the sounds of birds, toads, and monkeys around us. We woke for an early morning, for a 5 am hike with Fernando to go tree-climbing and watch the sunrise. It was INCREDIBLE. Fernando created the platform himself like 10 years ago, which was so interesting to hear about. He is so knowledgeable and hearing his stories while you're sitting in the sky watching the colors of the sky change is an unforgettable experience. Also, his recommendation to do a timelapse was spot-on. If you're on the fence about including this experience in your trip, don't be. GO FOR IT! We can't wait to go back for more adventures! And we miss the dog and cat friends we met here, especially "Scratch" the pup. So if you go, say hi for us :)

This was the highlight of our trip in Costa Rica. The tree camping was awesome, the food was great and the morning hike and tree climb watching the sunrise over the mountains was incredible! Fernando was very knowledgable and we learnt a lot about the nature and wildlife in Costa Rica. Thank you!
