  • Myself and my partner had a brilliant tour with Dave, who showed us the biggest variety of birds I have seen so far in Costa Rica. It lasted a good couple of hours and it was just the 2 of us! I would...  more »

  • What a beautiful place! This is definitely one of the best spots to see hummingbirds in action. They placed many feeders along one of their terraces and that enables you to watch many hummingbirds very closely which is such a wonderful experience! In addition, they have another terrace that you can see other birds from thanks to the fruit they place for them right below it. The place itself is beautiful, they started it only in 2009 and the scenery is already so full and green. Dave senior or Dave junior who own the place will give you a tour in it up until the river which takes about an hour, and you will see the lovely trees, plants and if you’re lucky - the blue jeans frog and many more. The tour is very informative and both Daves are so nice and welcoming. Highly recommended, don’t miss it!
  • If you are in Costa Rica and are looking at birds or want to see some interesting local birds coming to Dave & Dave's is a must. And all honesty their pricing is absurd but it's worth it in the end. You will see the white-throated Jacobin which is an astonishing hummingbird. I saw two species of toucans hear a wide variety of species. Both of them are genuinely very nice the grounds are very good. I guess I should say I saw a black crested Coquette here as well. Difficult bird to see so that was very exciting.
  • Amazing place to see the tropical birds of Costa Rica! If you are in to nature at all you will not want to miss this place. The owner's take pride in conserving the nature in the area and are excellent at sharing information about what they do there to preserve the natural habitat. If you like to take photos, there are two excellent platforms to do it from for both birds and hummingbirds.
  • One of the best tours ever for me, and I've traveled some. Standing in a peaceful veranda as the birds feed only several yards away. Never any problem spotting the various species and younger Dave gave terrific information about bird behavior. Also met father Dave, a very charming person. They have a real mission to preserve habitat.
  • We loved Dave and Dave (father and son). Beautiful 15 acre sanctuary that has been planted and cultivated over the years with trees that birds love. We saw about 25 species, not including the numerous hummingbirds. Highly recommended.
