San Luis Research Station

Administered by the University of Georgia, the 173-acre research station is one of the Monteverde area's best birding spots. Birdwatchers have reported seeing more than 230 avian species here, including the elusive, jewel-toned resplendent quetzal. Several trails wind through primary and secondary rainforest, and a working, on-site farm harvests tropical fruit year-round.
