Other lodges provide more luxury for the money, but none can match the tropical nature experience at this working biological-research station where accommodation is in dorm-style rooms with large bunk beds and lots of screened windows or family-style cabins that sleep up to four. The restaurant, something like a school cafeteria, serves decent food but has a very limited schedule (reserve ahead). Rates for dorms or cabins are full-board, which includes a guided nature walk and three meals a day with your room rate, since there's nowhere else to eat. Priority is given to researchers, so advance reservations are essential.

I was in Costa Rica for wildlife, but not this kind. I stayed one night and left the next day.
