If you want to see Monteverde, but want to avoid the touristy places around Santa Elena, here is your answer. The Univ. of Ga. Costa Rica campus at San Luis includes facilities for tourists along with the usual researchers and students. Rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff makes an extra effort to make visitors happy - something out of the norm for a biological research station. The food is excellent, there is a wide range of activities, and everyone on the staff was incredibly helpful. They even made a Florida Gator like me feel welcome.
