“Dedicated to the Biological Research and Conservation of Costa Rican Amphibians”

The Costa Rican Amphibian Research Center (C.R.A.R.C.) is a small private and family owned and operated eco-lodge and project that is dedicated to the biological research and conservation of Costa Rican amphibians and their ecosystems’ in two distinct biological reserves that are owned by the Kubicki family in the central Caribbean slopes of Costa Rica.

For nearly 20 years the C.R.A.R.C. has proven to be unique and a pioneer in many different aspects, not only regarding the novel research and in situ conservation methodologies implemented by Brian Kubicki, but also in being the first and only biological reserve in Costa Rica to offer complete exclusivity to the guests staying within. Reservations at the Guayacán Rainforest Reserve are made for only one group of visitors at a time, whether that be a single person, a family, or a group of friends traveling together. Anyone staying at the Guayacán Rainforest Reserve will have the entire guesthouse, any guided tours they may choose to go on, and one of the most biologically diverse private reserves in the country exclusively to themselves!!! This exclusivity not only creates the most optimal conditions to experience and observe the abundant nature within the Guayacán Rainforest Reserve, but it also aids in the continued ecological preservation by highly reducing the environmental impact as well.
