  • I love this place more than I can say! I've visited Dave and Dave's several times, and it's always a highlight of my time in Costa Rica. As a photographer, I can't think of a place I'd rather be...  more »
  • While on a Photography Tour to Costa Rica, our small group of six spent an entire morning at Dave & Dave's Nature Park clicking away. Young Dave greeted us and had lots of information about the wild.....  more »
  • Spent a wonderful morning photographing. Perfect location. Perfect set up. Young Dave was excellent in pointing out the different type birds and overall very helpful. Strongly recommend a visit.  more »
  • Visited twice this week a great place for birders and photographers saw so many exciting species. Wish that I lived nearer would be there weekly. These two great guys are living the dream and turning back the curse of palm oil production. Good on you Dave and Dave
  • This was a great chance to see several bird species up close. Lots of great photo opportunities. They also offer a 15-30 minute nature walk at the end of the two hours, where they point out various interesting things in the rainforest. They are very knowledgeable about the species they have there. Do note however that the birding experience is limited to just two small viewing locations and there will not be much walking around if you choose not to go on the nature walk at the end.
  • Amazing! This was unequivocally the best bird watching experience throughout my time in Costa Rica. A true must visit for anyone who enjoys watching birds, and especially if you're interested in photographing them. Both Dave's are nice people with a wealth of knowledge ready to share and a great passion for wildlife. I cannot recommend this place strongly enough.
  • Dave & Dave's is bird paradise and the perfect place for a photographer, both father and son are very knowledgeable about Costarican birds. They will answer any questions you may have. I consider that is better be there early in the morning if you want to see birds later on the day will be too hot. Love the place. Btw we were a group of 12 Cuban-Canadian in love with the colibri
  • Best run nature park in Costa Rica Thanks to both of you for great photo opts and river hike To see frogs, cutter ants, water birds. Beautiful grounds, flowers, trees & sloth overlooking the parking lot
