The name says it all—this is no prissy upscale ecolodge. Built primarily to accommodate biologists, researchers, and student groups, La Selva also accepts everyday tourists. Don’t expect fine linens, pampering service, or memorable meals. There are very basic bunk bed and dorm-style rooms, as well as a few more plush rooms geared toward tourists more than scientists. La Selva is operated by the Organization for Tropical Studies and has more than 1,614 hectares (3,656 acres) of private reserve bordering Braulio Carrillo National Park. On-site is a very extensive well-maintained trail system through these forests, and the flora and fauna viewing are some of the best in Costa Rica.
