Naturalists, students, and researchers are encouraged to come and visit us at the Costa Rican Amphibian Research Center and stay in our fully furnished guest house. The guest house provides comfortable accommodations for our guests, having a living room area, kitchen, bathroom, three bedrooms, and two porches to enjoy the nature outside. The kitchen and bathroom have hot water. The main bedroom has a full-sized bed. The second bedroom has a bunk-style bed, with a full-sized bed below and a twin-sized bed above. The third bedroom has a twin-sized bunk bed. The C.R.A.R.C. guest house can accommodate up to seven people.

Surrounding the guest house is a large garden area, with a small pond and a wide variety of plants. We have also planted selected species of flora in the garden area to attract wildlife, especially amphibians and birds. A very popular attraction to our guests is the small artificial pond that is located right next to the guest house. The guest house pond hosts an impressive diversity of amphibians and reptiles. Additionally, if you just feel like taking a break to relax during your travels one does not need to even leave the porches to observe some of the impressive wildlife that is so abundant in the area.


During your visit you will have the opportunity to observe an incredible biological diversity during a complementary 2–3 hour nocturnal tour with Brian Kubicki. The complementary tour is within the Guayacán Rainforest Reserve. Accompanying Brian on a tour within the Guayacán Rainforest Reserve is an experience you will not forget…

Visitors can also arrange to receive a personally customized amphibian observation tour with Brian to other biologically diverse sites throughout Costa Rica.
