About Accomodations

Accommodations are rustic researcher-style with bunk beds and ceiling fans, maximum eight persons per room. There is one double room with 2 twin beds and a private bath for teachers, and six rooms with eight bunk beds in each.
Men and women (or boys and girls) have separate rooms and bathrooms; the bathrooms are common within each gender.

  • Towels and soap are provided at check-in
  • Electric power is turned off at 10:00 PM

We ask guests to be quiet after 10:00 PM in the rooms and to be considerate to other guests, employees, volunteers and scientists staying in the same building.
There is a social area for playing ping pong, cards, or other table games which is open until 10:00 PM.

Packing for the best experience in nature

  • Clothes that dry fast and that you won’t mind getting dirty
  • Long pants for research
  • Flashlight
  • Light poncho
  • Mosquito repellent, hopefully natural based with no deet, and maybe a mosquito net
  • Sunscreen
  • Hiking boots; we can lend a limited amount of rubber boots but don’t carry larger sizes

And above all: eagerness for adventure and hands-on research!

Menus are based on Costa Rican traditional foods, such as rice and beans, salads, vegetables, meat, chicken or fish.

  • Breakfast: 7:00 AM – 8:00 AM
