Las Cruces more than met my expectations for a place to stay to discover even more bird species in Costa Rica. Beautifully warm during the day and super cool at night. The number of colorful tanagers alone made this well worth the visit! Welcoming friendly staff and the comradery of plenty of other birders and scientists onsite. Meals were fine... More

Lovely place to stay up near San Vito at 1200m so its nice and cool. Wildlife and excellent array of plant species are abundant and they have a new canopy viewing platform to take in the extent of the reserve! Nice rooms, very eco friendly. Amazing chorus day and night and you may get to interact with some of the... More

Spent four days here photographing Nature with another like-minded friend. Spacious room with great patio for wildlife viewing. Bathroom was small but the two of us took turns, and hey - how much time do you need to spend in the bathroom anyway? Highlight was hanging out with six ecology grad students from US, EU and Latin America and learning... More

I stayed here for two nights as part of a birdwatching tour group during the dry season. The facilities, somewhat typical of rainforest areas, were quite good. My room had glass all across the back (louvered windows and a door), with a private deck looking out onto the forest below. A portable fan provided air movement, no small deal since... More

My husband and I stayed one night at Las Cruces in December. We originally had this in our itinerary as a way to break up a long drive, but it turned out to be a fantastic addition. We stayed in the Antharium room (all rooms have names vs numbers) and there was SO much wildlife to view from the back... More
