  • Dave & Dave's is a relatively small reserve, but kudos to the owners for setting it up! We stayed near the main house and bird feeding areas (didn't have time to go down to the river unfortunately). T...  more »
  • This father and son team have created quite a birding hot spot. Admission per adult was $40 (please note that putting out pieces of bananas for birds is labor-intensive, not to mention the expense.) T...  more »
  • This is not a walk through the woods with binoculars. Instead the site has been carefully constructed to allow the viewing of high canopy birds as well the more common ones very closely. We saw severa...  more »

  • Really good tour if you want to see many different birds. Dave the owner is really friendly and share all his knowledge.
  • we saw. everything here that we had struggled to see elsewhere! made my holiday, and talking with Dave was enlightening, a truly lovely place and people. very good value as well, thank you Dave.
  • We came and payed an unexpected visit to this lovely nature park. The friendly owner and his son made much effort to explain us how they turned this previous palmplantation into a lush birdparadise. So many birds can be viewed and pictured from close distance. The little trail towards the river offers the chance to find more animals like frogs, fish and herrons. We are currently travelling through most of Costa Rica and did the Manual Antonio and Corcovado National Parks. But at Dave's we got to see so many birds and frogs. More than the two national parks combined! By spending the 20 dollar entree fee you will see a lot more Costa Rican beauty and support ecoprojects like this. Plus....the coffee they serve is delicious!
  • We have seen a lot of birds included many tucans. THE owner dave was very kind and knew everything About all The birds
  • Magic one can observe many birds from the terraces: hummingbirds, tanagers, toucans, and other birds colored during the ride to the river we saw colored frogs too. Dave is passionate about nature and its superb forest protection project
