Nature Observatorio, Manzanillo

5.0
#2 of 15 in Things to do in Manzanillo
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. See Nature Observatorio and all Manzanillo has to offer by arranging your trip with our Manzanillo itinerary builder app .

  • Had a great stay here. Peter was a fantastic host, and gave us 2 great tours to and from the treehouse. Definitely a once in a lifetime experience that we won't forget, and wins the award for the most unusual place I've ever stayed! Highly recommend staying here.
  • The best guided tour in Costa Rica! I traveled to Costa Rica with two boys and their biggest experience was TreeHouse. Lots of animals, like frogs, lizards, butterflies and birds ... and at the end of the tour we saw the toucan! Climbing the tree was also a great experience for me. It was not easy, but children (9, 11) had no problem climbing up or down. Thanks for expirience! Martin& soons
