Nature Observatorio, Manzanillo

5.0
#2 of 9 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 .

  • There is so much to say. Already Peter is a man passionate about the jungle, fauna flora architecture it will take advantage of his knowledge with ease during the hike that leads to the Observatory. Then sleep the top and sensational in every sense of the term. To climb out of his comfort zone, and it feels good. It's not physically difficult simply to apply the technique and take his time. The top you find yourself alone. Immerse yourself in nature. It's good to savor the present moment and observe what happens. These old majestic trees, this multitude of parrots, toucans and other birds, monkeys, the Caribbean to the horizon. Fall asleep and wake up with nature. In short we must go. Thanks for all peter. A unique experience and really beautiful. Good continuation. Navy and David
