This type of property is for travelers that are not looking for luxury or modern conveniences. It is basic and clean. The staff is wonderful and for the naturalist it is in a perfect setting. We enjoyed our time here.

Great way to experience the tropical rain forest
Great lodge for guests interested in nature, offering close encounters and observations of many birds visiting the bird feeding station just outside the restaurant or walking the different trails with one of the competent guides or self-guided. The rooms are basic but clean. Unfortunately, one of the country's main truck route crosses right through the Selva Verde natural preserve,
