Spent four nights here. Glad of them all. It's a fair distance from town but its own haven. Trails through the forests and lots of activities. Largely US staffed with young volunteers. Good activities ... feeding is cafeteria style and communal. No bar and nowhere really to hang out afterwards, groups of university students from the US the biggest contingents.... More

We travelled to Costa Rica for the first time to experience the cloud forest and its environment. Ecolodge San Luis was an ideal fit for our family and made our trip truly amazing. The cabin accommodated our family of 5 very comfortably, and the ease of having meals on site - tasty, healthy meals with lots of fruit and veggies,... More

This campus hotel has cabin-style rooms with a main building for communal dining and sitting. The rooms are very noisy due to wooden floors that make loud creeking sounds inside and on the shared outside porch. The walls are very thin and you can hear everything your neighbors do and say. Additionally, the rooms have bugs inside and the bedding... More

My husband, two adult daughters and I spent 3 nights at Ecolodge San Luis. It was definitely the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. We spend our first 3 nights in the country on the Pacific Coast - at Coco Beach - and then drove over to the Ecolodge. From the moment we arrived, everyone was so friendly and... More

This is my second time staying at the UGA campus in Monteverde, we also visited at the same time of the year in 2013. The campus is operated by the University of Georgia, TX. It's a jungle research station where students come to learn, teach, or end their studies with a 6 month volunteer program. They have a few basic... More

My family including a toddler recently stayed at the Uga Costa Rica ecolodge. It was a fabulous experience. There are tons of things to do around the campus. The interns and the staff are very nice and informative. Our little one made many new friends here :). The grounds and rooms are neat and spacious. The tours they arrange are... More

I recently spent three nights at Ecolodge San Luis and it was a highlight of my trip to Costa Rica! It's a satellite campus of the University of Georgia where researchers, university students, and grad students come to study, learn, and teach. Not only did I have the opportunity to experience staying in the tropical jungle, but I also learned... More

I spent 4 nights here and found the experience both enjoyable and informative. It's unlike anywhere else I stayed in over 7 weeks in Costa Rica. The fees cover accommodation, food and numerous activities centred on informing visitors about the ecology of the area and the sustainable way in which the ecolodge and associated research/education facilities are managed. I must... More

My boyfriend and I spent three nights at the lodge in June as part of a wider trip around Costa Rica. It was a completely amazing trip and easily the most memorable stay of our visit to this extraordinary country! We stayed in the lodge bit, which is a ten-minute walk from the main campus. You'll need sturdy walking shoes... More

The Ecolodge San Luis is attached to the University of Georgia campus just minutes away from Monteverde but far from the tourists that throng it. Cost per person includes guided tours and an opportunity to interact with UG students and staff. Meals are served in the cafeteria. It is a perfect place for families who like to hike and to...
