Our room in this tropical research and education centre was basic but comfortable. There was plenty of space and the balcony made this seem more so. Meals were included in a refectory-style community dining room. They were generally very good and gave us a chance to try many local dishes. The centre is situated in the gardens established by the Wilsons and designed by Burle-Marx which feature many ferns, palms, bromeliads, and orchids. The 10-ha gardens are surrounded by 235-ha of forest which feature an incredible diversity of animals and birds accessible by the many trails. Staff were helpful and friendly, and committed to the conservation and educational ethos of the centre.
