The 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.

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 spectacular sunsets.

An educational program at Campanario, far from "civilization",
will change your manner of thinking.
