We were staying close by and decided to visit around 08.30 one morning. We were welcomed at the gate by Dave senior and overall spend nearly three hours there. We would probably have stayed longer but had to join another tour. The grounds have been carefully looked after by the family and there is a great opportunity to view and photograph birds in a relaxing and welcoming environment. There is also an opportunity to walk down through the forest to the river and it was fascinating to hear from Dave about how he started the place.Well worth a visit and if we are ever close by we will call in again. (Just as another couple did whilst we were there). They had traveled specifically to the area for this purpose.

Thanks so much for writing such an excellent review! We enjoyed the tour just as much as the two of you. Your visit makes it possible for us to continue to plant more trees and increase the habitat for the wildlife of Costa Rica. A sincere thanks from your friends Dave and Dave.

One of the few 5 star ratings we have given. Eco tour at its best. Committed ownership and not for profit. Small group tour of no more than 6. We hit the jackpot on our visit. Spotted sloth, howlers, rare birds and some pretty unique critters. Highly recommended. Sorry, no zip line attraction nor snakes nor cages.... and Thanx for that Dave.

We visited Dave and Dave’s 4 years ago and we knew we wanted to come back. It’s a great example of very committed people improving habitat for birds and other wildlife, including the great green macaw. When they bought the property years ago, it was an African palm plantation. They removed the African palms, planted almonds and other fruiting trees which have provided food and habitat for macaws and other birds. They have feeders set up on the property so that you can get a close-up look at tanagers, honeycreepers, toucans, aracaris, oropendolas, hummingbirds, etc. It’s a great place for photographers as well. Dave Senior and Dave Junior are both natural teachers, identifying birds for guests and sharing their passion for habitat restoration. A great visit!!

Having visited Dave and Dave three years ago we wondered whether a return trip was advisable....we need not have worried. Its a wonderful place to see birds and talk to (either father or son) Dave about how they have achieved it. We cannot recommend the Nature Pavilion too highly.
