A stay at Selva Verde is the perfect place for an introduction to the rainforest of Costa Rica. Covered walkways are very much appreciated, especially during the rainy season. The reception area and grounds are a tropical paradise. Poison dart frogs are easily spotted as well as a variety of iguanas. The birding was still wonderful. I found the meals tasty and plentiful if not extremely varied. The room accommodations are quite adequate for an eco-lodge, but we did not stay in a standard room. We had 1 of the 7 bungalows at the other side of the road. The bungalow was fantastic, a beautiful setting. (a standard rooms is one of the 4 rooms in a block) the bungalow is detached. Now we had to walk 15 minutes to the dining room, but it was worthwhile. The bungalows are air-conditioned and have a fridge. The lodge has jungle trails for you to enjoy, they have areas where they put out food for wildlife, which is perfect if you are a photographer. At breakfast, I took a table just 20 meters from a feeding station where I could sit and photograph the Toucans. There is also a very nice river just a few meters from the lodge.
