The family Costa Rican owners are always available to help you to organize one-day trips to Los Cusingos Bird Sanctuary, Cloudbridge Reserve, Las Nubes Biological Station, Hot-springs, Canopy and a lot of wonderful places around. This place is also available for groups, including educational travelers. Birding in this area is an amazing experience! Less
