  • The station develops programs of research and aid to local communities. There are tour packages, listed on their website. Accommodation, food and care are excellent. The landscape and location are beautiful. It is located in one of the limits of the Laguna del Tigre national park, in an area of secondary and tertiary forest. Canoe, on foot or from the facilities of the station we saw: crocodiles, hummingbirds and howler and spider monkeys, muuuuuuuuuuchos birds. With more luck, they told us, we had seen up to tapirs and macaws.

  • Maravillossa experience from taking the boat in Paso horses, we had the fortune to travel at night and at full moon, the spectacle was even more wonderful. On arrival we find staff very friendly and helpful being Cornelius, Carlos, Geovanny, Roxana, and Maria, all very good hosts. Very clean rooms, despite being in the middle of the Tropical jungle and a few meters from the Rio San Pedro, the rooms were and smelled clean, towels and bedding very clean, no humidity, not fabrics of spider, or insects. A few minutes gave us a drink of Jamaica rose at its point and cold. The activities of the following days all were very well prepared, the information provided on wildlife, birds, reptiles, monkeys, and the knowledge of archaeology was very good, worthy of a Chair or a master class. They surprised us on multiple occasions with very good details, one of them was the tasting of a cocktail of tropical fruits in the middle of the jungle and a lemonade with sweetener, because they had already noticed that there were people who were not consuming sugar in our expedition. I can extend good provided details, but the ideal would be that readers if you like them, activities of this type please visit the place and be surprised these same details if. Direct contact with Jovany Tut (502) 56993669 or Cornelius (502) 5699 3735. It is advisable to make reservations for three or more days, there is much to know and do.

  • We stayed two nights at the station as part of a route to mainly ornithological vocation. Our trip was organized with the help of the excellent Martsam Travel Agency. When Martsam suggested to include a stay at Las Guacamayas, I was moderately convinced but now I do not regret, on the contrary. The ornithological interest of Las Guacamayas is the level of Tikal. We have seen many species that we we have not seen then in Tikal. We left with a feeling of too short. The accommodations are perfectly integrated in nature and birds come close. Hummingbird feeders are constantly busy. A special mention for the Manakin yellow thighs (Red-capped) that was right next to our room. For those less obsessed with birds, monkey spiders and Screamers also visit the station. The setting by the river is beautiful and boating a pleasure. The rooms are nice and well equipped. We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and service. During our trip, we experienced pleasant accommodations, receptions of varying quality, but the station will remain a special moment by its family atmosphere and peaceful. This is by far the most enjoyable time of the trip by this aspect. In addition we had the sensation and satisfaction to participate in a project that's worth: everything comes from neighboring communities. Thanks to Giovanni, Maria, Roxanna and all others which I forgot the name.
