My buddies, Josh, and I stayed in one of the dorms. It was dorm three to be exact. Very quaint lodging, but it just had that cozy feel. We enjoyed watching the sunset with friends, and learning all about plants, mammals, and insects. The naturalists were super kind, and I enjoyed the experience.

Great weather, food, and people, what more could you ask for? The UGA Ecolodge was an amazingly beautiful place to stay. With a great campus, rooms, and bathrooms, I highly recommend visiting here. They give you many great activities to do and you'll have a new adventure to do each day. Also the hot chocolate is AMAZING!!!

This place was amazing, it was so nice. Being surrounded by the forest had to be an amazing view. There were tons of wildlife surroundings by the dorms i stayed at. Staying at UGA was a life changing experience. The guides were very welcoming and friendly. Everyone was so helpful and genuine. Even though, i would highly suggest bug spray,... More

I visited the UGA Ecolodge with 17 other people on a high school trip. The Ecolodge was fantastic. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an alternative experience--this is no ordinary touristic location. The staff are helpful, kind, and energetic interns with vast knowledge of biology and ecology. While there I learned a great deal about Costa Rica... More

We stayed in the dorms for about a week which was a lot of fun. But what was even more interesting was the ecotourism aspect of the place. Everything we did was part of a closed loop system that eventually benefitted our stay even further. Solar panels, biodigesters, and a farm all contributed to an enjoyable and sustainable stay here.

We loved the whole experience. After teaching Ecology for 46 years I really appreciate the quality of instruction of the interns.Visiting the research station gives me so much hope for the planet.The facilities were comfortable and the food was very good. We will return and plan more time here. It does take a 4-wheel drive to get to the location.

We stayed there during Christmas week to New Year's, and were enthralled by the beauty of the setting and the energy, hospitality, and warmth of all of the staff. I highly recommend taking advantage of the on-site lectures and tours by the resident naturalists, and also taking their recommendations as to what day trips you may want to take. They... More

My friend and I are long-time travel industry professionals, so you can imagine how meticulously we planned our most recent trip to the Monteverde area of Costa Rica. We both enjoy accommodation that is a bit out of the ordinary when we travel - convents, yurts, tree houses, etc., so we were looking to stay somewhere unique in the rainforest.... More

Our visit to San Luis was the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica; in fact, I think it is my favorite place my husband and I have stayed on four continents over the last 15 years of adventuring together. We stayed in the cabinas with our three-year-old daughter and our five-month-old baby. From the moment we arrived from the... More
