Create an itinerary including Nature Observatorio
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. Put Nature Observatorio and other Manzanillo attractions into our Manzanillo itinerary builder app, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • 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!
  • The nature observatory is an incredible, unique and authentic experience to see the gorgeous jungle. The treehouse has a spectacular view where we spotted wildlife and enjoyed the peacefulness of the treetops. Rich and Peter made our experience feel special and just the right mix of adventure and relaxation! I would recommend this tour to anyone looking to truly know the beauty of Costa Rica
