This place is really cool. It's beautiful and a welcome change from the usual hotel or B&B. The students who checked us in and gave us a night tour were incredibly knowledgeable and the place was alive not only with nature but also with the energy of students and faculty who were incredibly friendly and obviously enjoying their time in...

I have visited this lovely station with my family and have taken my college classes. This place is for a traveler that is keen to learn. So many opportunities!! Contact with resident researchers, lectures, library access, knowledgeable interpreters, botanical garden, guided night hikes...you see what I mean. I really loved the on-site alternative energy tour of biodigestor. Yes, they are... More

This was the high-point of our trip. I was a bit put off when we arrived, but as the days went on my wife and I fell in love with the place and the people. Everyone there really cares about the place, their work, and are eager to show you the wonders of the cloud forest and to make you... More

This place was fantastic! My wife and I stayed here for about 5 days in mid January, and had such a wonderful time. First, it is neither a hostel or a hotel, so don't expect anything typical of either of those types of accommodation. Expect wonderful service, great food (3 meals a day, included in nightly rate), awesome tours and... More

I came here in December, 2013, with my husband and three other faculty colleagues at the University of Mississippi, to check out your facilities with the aim of perhaps developing Environmental Studies courses to be taught there. We all fell in love with the ecolodge. The facilities themselves are lovely and every bit of our trip was both fascinating and... More

We spent three days and nights at the Ecolodge San Luis operated as part of the University of Georgia Athens (UGA) environmental research campus. Our family of three shared a bungalow which was very simple and clean with an ensuite bathroom with hot shower. All meals were included in the per person rate and were served in a dining hall...

If you want to see Monteverde, but want to avoid the touristy places around Santa Elena, here is your answer. The Univ. of Ga. Costa Rica campus at San Luis includes facilities for tourists along with the usual researchers and students. Rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff makes an extra effort to make visitors happy - something out... More

Interns and fellow guests entertained and educated us at the ecolodge. When you arrive, somebody sits you down and helps you plan your time, including onsite nature tours and reservations for nearby attractions. We saw an armadillo,,agoutis, a,kinkajou, and several tarantulas on site hikes, enjoyed conversations at the group meals, and gotmamguidedmtour of their neighbor's 1-man coffee business. They also...

This was the perfect place to begin our Costa Rica trip (Mom plus 14 year old boy). The staff was excellent and the volunteers very helpful. We toured the grounds and learned about the ecosystem, plants and animals, and saw coati, paca, many birds, an enormous leaf-cutter ant den and much more. In the morning, monkeys and in the afternoon... More
