    This is a beautiful station with very nice rooms, amazing trails, many gardens, and an excellent dining room. The price is very reasonable, $90 per night which includes three meals and access to the entire property. The gardens are not only beautiful but also are very important due to the number of plants they have from around the world. I very much enjoyed my stay at Las Cruces. Ecotourists staying at the facility help to fund the research that is being conducted at this OTS station. OTS also has two other research stations in Costa Rica and one in Africa. I've stayed in the one at Sarapiqui and is also very, very nice.

    We are ex-pat residents of Panama and decided to cross the nearby border into Costa Rica and visit the town of San Vito. Finca Cantaros is 2 km from the town center, walking distance from town. Reservations are required which were easy to make via email. Admission fee is by donation only. We received an excellent tour of about one hour by Randall Jimenez, a staff member. It helped very much that one of us speaks fluent Spanish and the rest of us have a beginner-intermediate command of Spanish. If you speak only English you can still enjoy the natural beauty of the site but will miss out on the depth gained by learning the history and mission of Finca Cantaros.
    After Randall's tour we were turned lose to hike the beautiful grounds that encompass a wetlands full of bird, amphibian and insect life, a 30 year old restored rainforest teaming with trees, flowering plants and vines, more birds, small mammals, and butterflies, an amazing tropical tree and plant greenhouse that is the most productive I have ever seen and run on a shoestring, and the impressive rainforest restoration project the community children are creating.
    Finca Las Cantaros is committed to involving the local community in their ecological mission and that shows throughout the beautiful grounds. We hiked for a few hours and dug deep into the details of this wonderful site. Oh, and the frosting on the cake: petroglyphs and a commitment to honoring the native ancestors of this beautiful area of Costa Rica.

    Henry and his team were amazing. Henry helped plan and customize our trip, based on exactly what we wanted to do and see. From my first email to him, until we finalized our plan, Henry was responsive and helpful to my many questions, and helped make a lot of our arrangements.

    Our trip was mostly in the Las Tables region, near La Amistand International Park, and the Panama border. Henry organized about a week in the jungle, mountains, and even a coffee tour. We saw tons of animals, had amazing food, and did great adventures everyday.

    I highly recommend Desafios Tours. Henry has great knowledge and experience in this less traveled part of Costa Rica. We look forward to seeing Henry again next year and going on more adventures.
