we stayed one night in the ranger station at Sirena and had a two days hike under the guidance of the best guide ever Nito Castro. We camped in a tent under an open roof on a platform in the ranger station and experienced the sounds of the jungle in the night. We had close encounters with nearly all animals,... More

Do your homework and you will have a wonderful time. You can not camp on the ground. You will need your own sleeping bag / sleets. Nothing that is wet will ever dry. The howler monkeys will wake you up in the middle of the night, and the birds in the morning. If you go on the deep into the... More

Great place to rest a while if you're hiking. Hopefully you'll get to see the plane landing or taking off from the airstrip.

The lodge is very primitive: there is no hot water, the electricity is till 8pm, after that there is... More

La Sirena Range Station is by far the best of Costa Rica. Our guide Kenneth Mora was awesome! My husband and I stayed a night at the station in a tent, it was hot, but so worth it. We saw tapir, monkeys, tucans (by the ranger station) an eye lash viper, many birds, ants, crocodile and got to experience Costa... More

Beautiful spot with plenty of beautiful 2-4 hour hikes. Walked there and back from Carate which was lovely - lots of wildlife. Pretty basic accommodations - dorms or a platform. Stayed on the platform under a bugnet - I think that was a good choice as the dorms or a full tent would have been too hot. Decent cooking facilities.
