          I can't add to the other "5" reviews. I agree with them word for word. I stayed four nights and could have stayed more. Remember that it is a biological station so it is rustic, but given that, it was clean, everything worked, and Ivannia...More

          The station is a rustic cabin in the middle of the Childrens' Eternal Rainforest. The accommodations are basic, no hot water, bunk beds. To get there you need to hike about 3 miles from Monteverde. However when you get there, you are in the middle...More

          We will be staying in Monteverde and when we leave we hope to spend a couple of nights at the station. It sounds like a hike in wouldn't be great with our airport roller suitcases. Is there someplace to leave your luggage for the walk in to the reserve?
