Natural History

Explore the flora and fauna of Costa Rica’s tropical rainforest with one of the world’s leading institutions in education and research in tropical science, the Organization for Tropical Studies.  Our stations offer a wide range of naturalist activities including guided trail walks, birding tours, night tours, boat tours, workshops, etc.  Please inquire about the availability of specific tours and activities at each station.

Note that some trails have been made accessible for the physically challenged at our La Selva Research Station.

You can find information on all of our stations, tours, activities, and make reservations here to be taken to the external Three Paths website, operated by OTS’ wholly owned for-profit subsidiary, Estudios e Investigaciones Tropicales S.A. (ESINTRO), which manages our Natural History reservations.
