Observe panoramic views of Costa Rican jungle at Nature Observatorio, a privately-owned treehouse at the heart of lush forest. The treehouse is a modern and safe construction with two floors suspended by nylon straps, and follows an eco-friendly principle whereby the huose is removed and built onto another tree to preserve the life of the forest. Treks to the treehouse usually take around 30 minutes on-foot through biodiverse jungle, before climbing to the top of the treehouse for an excellent reward of panoramic views spanning the jungle and Caribbean Ocean. The trail can be pretty muddy, so be sure to wear appropriate footwear.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our peaceful hike to the tree house. Peter (our guide) has such a trained eye and incredible knowledge about the creatures of the jungle. We had fun hauling ourselves up the ropes to the tree house (with Felix’s help). It certainly is worth the effort, as the vistas are amazing. Peter has built such an incredible structure. We love how tree-friendly it was too and his complete respect/regard for nature. We would highly recommend this experience to those that have at least an average level of fitness. Thank you so much Peter, for showcasing the jungle in such a non-intrusive and wonderful way.
What an awesome and unique experience! I was so impressed by Peter's knowledge about the jungle and how good he was at finding amazing little critters for me to photograph! I had an amazing time exploring the jungle and learning about this incredible structure that he designed and built. Spending a night up in the canopy was incredible!
