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... More

This place is refreshingly different from your usual hotel as it is part of a university. We loved the guided walks we did with the volunteer naturalists: insects, birds, sustainability, night walk through the forest. They all had huge amounts of information to share. Our children thought it was all amazing. We saw all sorts of wildlife including capuchin monkeys,... More

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.
