CAMPANARIO BIOLOGICAL STATION
EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS IN THE
TROPICAL RAIN FORESTS
OF THE OSA PENINSULA, COSTA RICA!
Campanario Biological Station lies in the Pacific lowland tropical rain
forest of the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica and stretches nearly 170
acres inland from the sea. It is proud to be home to a wide array of
rare and endangered flora and fauna. Campanario offers Neotropical
Ecology courses throughout the year for individuals, family groups and
students of all ages.
A visit to Campanario's tropical rain
forest is not for everyone! Campanario is a remote reserve. Access is
by boat, transportation around the reserve is by foot, and climate
control is a nice breeze. There are no TVs, telephones, or daily maid
service for your rustic jungle accommodations. Fast food at Campanario
means grabbing a ripe fruit or fishing off the rocky point. Traffic
delays mean waiting for the high tide or calm seas. What you will have
are warm weather, warm rain, and warm surf on a secluded tropical
beach, but cool waterfalls, cool showers, and cool nights. You will
hike in a lush tropical rain forest, take walks for bird watching of
exotic species, watch schools of brilliantly colored fish, and enjoy
An educational program at Campanario, far from "civilization", will change your manner of thinking...
...You just might want to stay!
