The nest observation tower

“A 28 m. (92 ft.) observation tower dedicated to the viewing of canopy birds and other wildlife. Placed in the center of the rainforest, The Nest offers unparalleled wildlife viewing opportunities. As you ascend the 146 stairs to the top, keep your eyes peeled for monkeys, toucans, and other wildlife moving through the lower levels of the trees. Once at the top, you will be treated to an incredible 360° panoramic view of Arenal Volcano, Arenal Lake, Cerro Chato, and the Tilarán Mountain Range. This is the perfect spot to scan the canopy for birds and other wildlife amongst the treetops. With a telescope, you may even find some aquatic birds in the areas surrounding the lake Arenal.”
