We were very excited after booking a night stay at the Nature Observatorio, and had very high expectations. I'm happy to say that our experience completely exceeded what we had hoped for. Peter is such a kind and knowledgeable person, it was an honor to share a bit of the jungle with him on our walks to and from the tree house. The ascent was a fun workout for the four of us who had never rope climbed before. Once up in the tree house we were amazed by the views and the nature surrounding us. From the 600 year old tree next to us, to monkeys, parrots, toucans, and sloths, it was an incredible experience. Hope we meet again Peter!

THANK YOU PETER :D It was soooooo beautiful! We won't forget the night in the jungle! Really an unique experience, and for everyone a must-do that loves nature! A green treasure in Costa Rica, which is only entered by a maximum of 6 guests ... so that one cannot perceive the animals and you can observe them perfectly! The best tree house ever! PURA VIDA <3

It was a fantastic stay! We met Peter at the entrance of the refuge. He offered us rubber boots and it was perfect to hike through small creeks and some muddy trails. On the way to the treehouse we saw cute colorful frogs :) Climbing up the tree house looked a little tricky, but there was no difficulties as Peter and Mica helped us. The view from the top was amazing! Canopy, many many birds flying around, and a cheeky monkey approached us. The time until the sunset went by really quick only by watching the nature. Peter and Mica came back with warm dinner, ummmmm delicious! Next morning we woke up early and watched the sunrise and birds having breakfast. Breakfast was again delicious and the mangos, so tasty! We loved a lot talking to Peter, about the forest, his passion and the life. We want already go back to the treehouse, but next time longer than a night! We recommend everyone to come and see the nature. It's a MUST to do when someone travels in Costa Rica!

Wow! What a joy to stay in this paradise in the sky! Peter was absolutely magnificent. My boyfriend and I are trekking around Costa Rica and decided to spend a bit more for a special experience. We are so glad we did! It was worth every single penny... and more! This was not just "a place to stay." It's beyond words. It's an opportunity to have a mental, spiritual, and physical connection with the jungle. Nobody or company can mimic what Peter provides. We started with a friendly face, Theresa, to take us into the jungle and to our home for the night. She showed us all kinds of animals on the walk. The view from the top is spectacular. We were greeted by toucans and loved hearing the howler monkeys! Theresa brought us a warm and tasty dinner (with wine!) and we dozed off not long after the sunset. We woke with the jungle animals and saw the sunrise. So special! Peter came and served us breakfast in the morning. Such great hospitality! And it was even his birthday! How kind of him to share it with us. He showed us more animals that we didn't see on the walk in. On the way out we saw spider monkeys and a sloth! So much better than seeing it in a zoo. This was an experience that was up close and personal. One of a kind. If you're considering the splurge, DO IT! This is not something to pass up. Peter's passion and enthusiasm for nature is contagious, and Theresa, his volunteer, was as sweet as can be! Pura Vida!

"To view the jungle from high above the tree line is one of the most rewarding experiences, and certainly one of the top joys of life."

Nature Observatorio is a beautiful treehouse suspended 25 meters up on a tree in the middle of the jungle in the Gandoca Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge at the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica.

Enjoy wonderful nature hike through primary forest, exercise yourself climbing the tree with ropes, and get the fresh air from the ocean and incredible views of trees, animals and birds from our canopy.

You can climb yourself up or you can be comfortable pulled up with an elevation system. Its a modern unique design, not a single nail is harming the tree. We use solar panels for led lights, an eco-toilet and shower with rain water.

To arrive we will walk for about 45 minutes inside the forest from where we park the car. Observatorio has two bedrooms with capacity up to 4 persons. Breakfast and dinner are included in the price as well as fruits, drinks and snacks.

This project is only for adventure and nature lovers. If you don't want to spend the night there you can just visit it for a half or full day tour. Either or, you are up for something very special. We will be delighted to welcome you in our Amazing Treehouse.
