This place is refreshingly different from your usual hotel as it is part of a university. We loved the guided walks we did with the volunteer naturalists: insects, birds, sustainability, night walk through the forest. They all had huge amounts of information to share. Our children thought it was all amazing. We saw all sorts of wildlife including capuchin monkeys, tarantula and toucans.
Dining is cafeteria style with local food, some of which is grown / reared on site.
Some of the cabinas are a bit of a walk (10 mins max) from the main buildings if you don't have a car. Just ask when you book.
